Emily Ekins on Obamacare Derailing the President’s Credibility

Sad ObamaWhite HouseThe latest Fox News poll finds 55 percent of Americans now disapprove of President Obama’s general job performance and 61 percent specifically disapprove of his health care handling, the highest numbers since they first began asking these questions in 2009. Not even during the IRS or AP scandals, NSA revelations, or Syria debacle did Obama’s favorability ratings take such a hit. President Obama’s personal image has also been tainted, writes Reason Foundation director of polling Emily Ekins. Now a majority of Americans do not find the president honest or trustworthy, the highest level since Quinnipiac began asking the question.
