This should bring on more magic speeches.

President Barack Obama’s job rating remains upside-down — no big change there. Yet for the first time in a Fox News poll, more than half of voters find Obama unlikeable.

In addition, only about a third of voters say they trust the federal government, and most want Congress to continue to investigate Benghazi, the IRS, the government’s electronic surveillance program and the Justice Department’s monitoring of journalists.

The new Fox News national poll of registered voters was released Tuesday.

More voters disapprove than approve of Obama’s job performance on every issue save one: terrorism (on that the president receives positive marks — 52 percent approve, while 41 percent disapprove).

His unfavorable rating is now at 51 percent, the first time it’s tipped to that end of the scale.

The question now is whether the administration’s troubles will continue and become the party’s troubles next year. The GOP has some real opportunities in the upcoming midterms and needs to stop getting distracted (as always) and figure out strategies to tie vulnerable Democrats to the president. By that I mean strategies that resonate, not the old gloomy-voiced TV ads telling everyone how many times Candidate X “voted with” the president.

It would also help if everyone would stop acting as if the apocalypse were nigh, because that makes it difficult to avoid the gloomy-voiced stuff.

Those of us that have been disliking him for a while welcome the rest of you to the party. Have a seat and stay a while. Got some ESB in the fridge and about to grill some hotdogs...

Fear not. After Obama starts his war on coal in earnest and utility costs jump and after Obamacare really gets going, this part of his administration will be remembered asthe good old days when he was nearly at parity in the polls.

I'm with Whatmeeworry. I'd feel a lot better if Republicans in Congress weren't always voting to advance the progressive agenda. Their idea of success is advancing it a tiny bit more slowly than Democrats would like. Thanks for nothing, guys!

Here's some low-hanging fruit: refuse to pass any kind of spending bill that includes funding for Obamacare. It's an unpopular law, and it should be easy (for a politically competent party) to get the American people on their side.

The progressives are more vulnerable than they have ever been thanks to Dear Leader and his extremist ideologue agenda...2014 & 2016 are rare opportunities, for the right candidates. Courage, charisma and aggression will carry the day. Be brutally honest and call a spade a spade; let the chips fall where they may, but have a message of strong financial growth and restoring pride in being an American. Stay away from Rove and the other establishment "experts" who gave us McCain and Romney. I like the sound of a Sessions/Walker ticket: Alabama Senator Jeff Sessions/Wisconsin Governor Scott Walker.

Remember BENGHAZI!

I might not feel like the apocalypse was nigh if I thought I had conservatives in Congress willing and able to fight instead of compromising. Go ahead Congressional conservatives - prove you can create legislative gridlock. You don't have the guts! Better nothing moves forward than your lousy compromises on the Dem's agenda.

No worries -- the GOP is rushing an SOS cave-in on immigration. That should stanch the Obama bleeding. And I'm sure they can be counted on or more help soon. That's what they do, after all.

What difference does it make? He does not care, executive action, corrupt appointments, OFA, million $ trips, fundamentally unbalanced and treasonous activities......finally, unfortunately, a politician not swaying with the polls! Isn't that what we want?
