Latest Poll: Democrats Struggle ahead of Midterm Election

In the latest political poll by the Washington Post and ABC News President Obama’s approval rating continues to be weak ahead of the 2014 Midterms.  President Obama faces a 52 percent disapproval rating on the way he is handling his job as president and a 54 percent disapproval how he is dealing with the economy.

When asked about approval on particular issues in the news, President Obama has the following ratings

  • Handling the situation in the Ukraine – 34% Approval
  • Implementation of healthcare law – 37% approval

These are not very good numbers for the chief executive ahead of a tough midterm election.  But since Barack Obama isn’t on the ballot (in name anyway) lets look at other numbers that deal with Republicans and Democrats as a whole.

66 percent of Americans polled say that the nation is on the wrong track.  When asked who is responsible, those polled say that Obama and the Democrats in Congress are more responsible for the condition of the country then Republicans by a 12 point margin.
