(Washington, DC)  --  The honeymoon between American voters and President Obama appears to be coming to an end.  A new "Washington Post"/ABC News poll shows nearly 60-percent lack faith in the President.  That's in sharp contrast to 18 months ago when Obama took office.  At that time 60-percent had confidence in his decision making.

While the latest poll numbers are a new low, Republican and Democratic lawmakers fare worse.  When asked if they had confidence in Democratic congressional members, 68-percent said they had "some" or "none."  The poll also revealed that 62-percent are not leaning toward supporting incumbent candidates in the fall elections.  Nearly 13-hundred people participated in the poll that was conducted from July 7th to the eleventh.
