In a matter of six years, Obama has earned a higher negative rating than George W. Bush had at the same point in his presidency.

It should be noted that Obama has managed to reach these new lows in polling despite a tremendous amount of help from the media, an advantage that George W. Bush never had.

The Washington Free Beacon reported:

Obama Polling Worse Than Bush Did at This Point in His Presidency

The latest Wall Street Journal/NBC poll shows nothing but dire numbers for President Obama’s remaining term.

In what was once viewed as a strength, Obama’s waffling on handling the Islamic State of Iraq and the Levant threat has dragged his approval numbers lower than the nadir of President Bush in 2006.

In fact, Obama’s handling of ISIL has begun to sag in his own party, endangering vulnerable Senate Democratic incumbents.

Chuck Todd appeared on his old show Wednesday to preview Obama’s address to the nation and point out that with his underwater numbers, the Democratic party is at a tipping point.

Here’s the video referenced in the report.
