ACA hurting Obama’s approval rating

obamajune2011The rocky rollout of the Affordable Care Act hurt President Obama’s approval rating, with a record 54 percent disapproving of his job performance in a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll. Nearly 60 percent of those surveyed cited ACA as a chief factor in shaping their view of the president this year. “It’s probably fair to say that as goes health care, so goes the Obama presidency for the next year,” Democratic pollster Fred Yang said. The public thinks even less of Congress. “More than half of those polled rated the current Congress as one of the worst ever, by far the most negative verdict going back to 1990,” the Wall Street Journal reported.
