ABC News Poll: Youth Abandon Obama and ObamaCare
A poll released by ABC News Tuesday shows that President Obama's approval rating has hit an all-time low in this particular poll. But the biggest fallout has come from 18 to 29-year-olds, a demographic widely considered to be Obama's base. Since January, the president's approval rating with this group has dropped a stunning 23 points. Support for ObamaCare has lost 16 points with this same group in just one month.
The president's approval rating with this group has been on the slide since the NSA scandal broke. But the 16 point drop in ObamaCare approval points points to the fact that the president's problems with an important part of his base goes beyond issues concerning privacy.
One explanation for the 16 point drop could be that many of those in this age group were caught off guard by the truth about ObamaCare, namely the fact that their government-mandated health insurance premiums would explode as a way to pay for the sick and elderly.
This was something the media covered up until after the 2012 election.
