As he mulls whether or not to do more damage than he has already done as it relates to the NAACP request, President Obama should consider how the American people’s assessment of his leadership have fallen to their lowest level in over a year of regular tracking.

The vast majority of Americans, 81%, say they are aware of the Obamacare (ACA’s) requirement that most Americans must carry health insurance or pay a fine. Americans who are currently uninsured – which ironically are those most directly affected by the mandate – apparently weren’t paying much attention to the healthcare debate when the monstrosity was passed. The uninsured are much less likely to be aware of the provision, with 56% saying they know about it and 43% saying they are unaware.

President Barack Obama’s presidential approval rating is still tanking, and in the new Fox Poll it is continuing its upside-down decent, but there are three reasons for the precipitation in Obama’s approval rating. Overall, Obama’s approval rating is underwater by 8%, as 43% of voters approve and 51% disapprove of his performance. The implications from these recent numbers are far-reaching for the next generation of conservatives burdened with the task to rebuild a party with national appeal, capable of building a majority coalition.
