The bad news for Obama? He’s at 38% approval according to Gallup. The only person listed who had a worse third August was Carter. And we know how that turned out.
A new low of 26% of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy, down 11 percentage points since Gallup last measured it in mid-May and well below his previous low of 35% in November 2010.
Fully 71% disapprove. And I would really like to meet someone who approves of Obama’s economic policies. I guess that number is proof that some people will never shift away once they decide to back a man.
Just wait until unemployment starts to tick upwards and economic activity goes completely flat, or even negative.
From USA Today/Gallup:
…a majority of Americans, 51%, say President Obama doesn’t deserve re-election; 47% say he does…
Not a good sign for a man seeking re-election. And do click on the above link for a State-by-State breakdown of Obama’s approval rating. Here’s the important bits:
Obama’s approval is at 53% in California; 52% in Minnesota; 54% in Vermont…and only 54% in Illinois!
If the election were held today, Obama would be crushed…now, is it likely to get better, or worse, for him by November of next year?
