Obama's approval rating at 38% is dragging Dems down: Quinnipiac

President Barack Obama’s approval rating has dropped to 38 percent in a poll released from Quinnipiac University on Tuesday, according to a Fox News report on Tuesday. The poll indicates that the president is pulling Democratic congressmen down with him.

According to the data, President Obama now only has a 41 percent approval rating among young voters in the 18-to-29 age bracket and he is down to a 50 percent approval rating among Hispanics. Both younger voters and Hispanic voters played a huge role in getting Obama re-elected 13 months ago when he had a great deal of support from both groups.

Obamacare: 52% want law repealed or changed - Obama's job approval rating drops below 40%

Currently, Obama only has 6 percent approval with Republicans, 30 percent approval with independents, and 70 percent with the Democrats.

Of interest is the impact that the nation’s dissatisfaction with Obama’s job performance is having on congressional Democrats – many of whom are running for election again next year. For the first time in 2013, the majority of voters claim they would vote for a Republican over a Democrat for their House of Representative’s congressman. A 47 percent majority of eligible voters also claim they would like to see Republicans take control of both the Senate and the House of Representatives in 2014. Naturally, this would leave the president as the only Democratic branch of the government for his last two years in office.

In spite of the responses, it is found that voters are not pleased with either political party in Congress.
