President hits new low as Obamacare discontent grows -- By Brian Hughes, The Washington Examiner

President Obama hit an all-time low in a poll released Tuesday, with just 39 percent approving of his job performance and a majority of Americans saying he is “not honest and trustworthy.”

The national survey from Quinnipiac University represents Obama's lowest approval rating since becoming president in 2008.

Just as troublesome for the White House, 52 percent of respondents say Obama is no longer honest and trustworthy — the lowest-ever measure of his veracity by Quinnipiac.

Obama’s approval ratings — and perceptions of his trustworthiness — have taken a hit in the wake of his broken promise that all Americans could keep their insurance plans under Obamacare. The problem-ridden healthcare.gov website continues to weigh on the White House as well.

The survey was chock full of bad news for Obama.

Women, long a bedrock of support for the president, disapprove of his job performance by a margin of 51 to 40 percent. And 63 percent of independent voters disapprove of the president near the end of his fifth year in office.

Voters oppose the Affordable Care Act by 55 percent to 39 percent, and 73 percent of respondents support extending the March deadline for obtaining health insurance or paying a fine. Just 36 percent back Obama’s overall handling of health care.
