    California, congressional Republicans have a lower approval rating than either Obama or Obamacare. Say goodbye to Congress, according to your logic.

    Obama has severe problems. But the simples who voted for him don't and won't recognize this.

      Not quite true. ABC has his approval rating at 46%. 37% is either the number who approve of the rollout of the healthcare law, or the number of people who "have confidence" in Obama (both polls at 37%).

      While Obama's "confidence" rating according to that poll is 37%... the GOP's rating is 20% (compared to 28% for the democratic party).

      Approval really doesn't matter. It doesn't matter if the public doesn't approve of you... as long as they prefer you to the alternative.

      The 59% disapproval of Obamacare is those who didn't approve of how the rollout was handled, not obamacare as a whole. Of note is that the number has dropped 10 points since December... it's not static. The latest AP poll shows that 42% dislike the law, 28% favoring it and 30% neutral.

      Just correcting numbers, draw whatever conclusions that you will from them.
