68 percent of Americans believe the nation is “on the wrong track,” however it’s far higher than that

A new Bloomberg National Poll reveals Obama’s approval rating has hit an all time low since the president went into office in 2009, as reported by the Washington Examiner. However, Obama’s approval rating is much, much lower than this as Bloomberg Polls have been notoriously known to be unreliable.
Just last week Gallup.com released a poll showing fewer Americans than ever trust the government to handle international problems, “with 49% saying they have a great deal or a fair amount of confidence.”
In early Aug., a Gallup Poll revealed that Obama’s economic approval slipped to 35 percent, down 7 percentage points from 42 percent in June.
According to Bloomberg, nearly half of the nation (49 percent), officially view Obama in a negative light, and his push for Obamacare isn’t helping. The Bloomberg poll shows a 53 percent disapproval rating on the economy, compared to 38 percent approval.
Of the respondents polled, 47 percent expect no improvements on the economy over the next year, while 27 percent say it will be better and 28 percent expect it to be worse. The poll showed 68 percent of Americans think Washington is doing a poor job, while 25 percent believe the government is on the right track.
Americans are seemingly waking up to the fact that both political parties are bought and paid for by the very same interests. Republicans are unfavored by 56 percent, while Democrats raked in a 47 percent unfavorable rating.
A second poll conducted by Fox News last week, shows 68 percent of Americans are frightened and very concerned about the new healthcare they will be forced to acquire, beginning next month.
The Fox News poll, which was conducted Sept. 6-8, via land-line and cellphone interviews, surveyed 900 “randomly chosen voters nationwide.” The majority of those polled want the healthcare system to return to what it was in 2009, before Obama became president.
Even members of Congress are freaking out about the implementation of the Affordable Care Act.
According to the Washington Times, this week the Senate sent out an email warning lawmakers not to sign up for Obamacare’s new health exchanges because the administration hadn’t “finalized the rules for how to keep paying for their premiums.”
“Members and staff are advised that they should delay enrolling in health insurance plans until we are able to offer further guidance as to how they should enroll in these insurance plans for 2014,” read the Senate email.
Sen. Ted Cruz, who spent 21 hours filibustering the healthcare law, said on Tuesday, “If Obamacare is going to force Americans all over this country to lose their employer-provided health insurance, be forced onto the exchange with no subsidies, then the men and women who serve in this body should feel that pain exactly the same.”
The Sen., who is growing in popularity, earned a place for himself in the record books for achieving the fourth-longest filibuster in Senate history. Meanwhile, Obama told the public at an informal discussion at a Clinton Global Initiative Forum in NYC, that Rep. are “trying to scare and discourage people from getting a good deal.”
It’s obvious the promises Obama made with the Affordable Care Act, are promises that were impossible to keep from the beginning, with many companies cutting employees from their payroll to avoid providing coverage that could inevitably leave them bankrupt.
