Obama’s popularity falls to minimal levels since the beginning of his presidency

US President Barack Obama’s popularity is now on the lowest point of his presidency, with a 41% of approval, five points less than last month, according to a poll published on Tuesday 29th April.

Newspaper Washington Post and channel ABC’s survey, looking at the legislative elections next November, show that a majority of Americans, 53%, is for Republicans controlling Congress in order to counteract the power that Obama is exerting from the White House.

Thus, this poll alarms Democratic Party, that has now majority on the Senate, and that could be damaged by the low popularity of Obama.

The 41% of acceptance equals his negative record, which he reached at the end of 2013, when the beginning of the sanitary reform was damaged by some technical problems, but in that moment 55% of survey respondents rejected his management and now the number of Americans against it is lower, 52%.

Despite the fact that there are already 8 million people enjoying the medical care of the new law, a number above White House’s expectations, the poll shows that this sanitary reform keeps damaging US President.

According to the poll, Americans reject mainly how Obama has applied the new sanitary law, with a 57% of disapproval, against 37% supporting it.

Moreover, 54% is against his economical management, compared to 46% supporting it, and 46% does not share the way he is managing the situation with Ukraine, while 34% approve it.

66% of US citizens think that their country is on the wrong track, states the survey.

Regarding the legislative elections in November, this unhappiness causes that 66% claim that they will maybe vote for something different than what they voted for last elections, while 22% will reelect their representatives in the Congress.

65% of the survey respondents consider that most Republican members of the Congress do not deserve the reelection, while 25% think in a different way.

Regarding the Democrats, 60% think that their Congress members do not deserve to stay in the Capitol, while 30% are satisfied with their job.
