Obama's Disapproval Hits New High, 59%, in New AP-GfK Poll

Tasty.

Full poll data here.

Some points: His approval is 41%. Usually you don't get these numbers adding up to 100%, but here you do (59% + 41%). In addition, they say 1% are undecided.

Of the 59% who disapprove of Obama, 36% strongly disapprove.

On the other hand, his positive rating, such as it is, has fewer people strongly approving of him -- only 14%.

He's also underwater on personal favorability, 42% favorable, 51% unfavorable.

Another poll, the Morning Consult, which is a health care tracking poll, finds that undecided voters are slightly opposed to Obamacare... and when I say "slightly," I mean they oppose Obamacare more than they support it by a whopping 40% margin.

Among those who describe themselves as likely but undecided 2014 voters, Obamacare approval sits at a robust (25/65) ...

Overall, likely voters oppose Obamacare by 53 to 41.

It's a two-edged sword, though, this "40% underwater on Obamacare among the undecideds" stat.

If so many of them disapprove of Obamacare -- 65% disapprove, to only 25% approving -- what the hell makes them undecided as to which party they'll be voting for in November?

It's could that they disapprove of Obamacare but don't really care all that much about it, in the same way that your neighbor may disapprove of the way the zoning commission is treating you but he's also not going to lose sleep over it. It's not his problem. And a large chunk of the population may see Obamacare as a problem, but a problem, so far, affecting only other people -- people with employee health care plans may not have yet heard that Obamacare is gunning for them, too.

Of course that might be because Obama has delayed various parts of the law that affect those with employer-provided insurance, until after the elections, at least.

It could also be that people just don't like the GOP for other reasons.
