Can Obama Recover?

First Read: "Another day, another poll... As NBC/WSJ co-pollster Bill McInturff (R) has emailed clients, history shows that it's difficult for presidents to recover from nosedives like this. And if that's true, Obama will be a liability in 2014, period."

"But it will be important to see where Obama's approval rating is come Spring 2014, assuming the health-care website gets fixed and the Affordable Care Act rollout becomes a distant memory. Barring something unforeseen, these next two months are perhaps the president's last shot at getting right before the midterms. He needs a working website and a State of the Union that somehow instills some hope that he's up to the job as a leader. How the public responds will tell us if Obama will be able to recover in time for the midterms."
