Obama’s Approval Rating On The Economy Stuck At 35 Percent

August 15, 2013

We’ve documented over and over the precipitous drop in President Obama’s approval rating over the course of just a few months.

Today, Gallup hones in on one specific issue where he seems to be doing even worse: the economy.

In spite of the endless “pivots” to jobs and the lip-service paid through campaign-style events on your tax dime, just 35 percent of respondents approve of the job he’s doing.

Don’t look now, but his approval rating on the federal budget deficit is even worse – standing at a pathetic 26 percent.

President Obama is simply out of ideas when it comes to reinvigorating our economy. It has been stagnating for years with slow job creation (most new ones being part-time) and regulations stifling growth every step of the way. Not to mention, of course, the ObamaCare “train wreck” coming down the tracks.

The Republican majority in the House has consistently passed common-sense bills that would create jobs and spur economic growth. Many of these proposals, like building the Keystone XL pipeline, have broad bipartisan support.

When President Obama stands against even members of his own party in finding ways to create jobs, it shouldn’t be surprising that his economic approval rating sinks to disastrous levels.

When it comes to the deficit, the only thing President Obama has done is made the problem worse. Without a strong Republican majority in the House pushing for fiscal discipline, who knows how much more the debt would be skyrocketing? We all know how much it can balloon under just 2 years of complete Democrat control of Washington.

That’s why it’s as crucial as ever to strengthen our Republican majority in the House. Stand with the NRCC today.
