31% Still Back Commucare

In 2012, some precincts reported greater-than 100% turnout, with 100% of votes cast for Obama
Just 37 percent of Americans approve of the job Obama is doing as president, compared with 57 percent who disapprove in a CBS News poll out Wednesday. The sub-40 percent number is the lowest approval Obama has seen during his presidency in CBS’s polling and is a drop of 9 points in approval from October.

At the same time, the president’s signature health care law is also at a new low. Approval of Obamacare stands at 31 percent, with disapproval at 61 percent, the worst numbers for the law in CBS’s polling.
