Poor Obama is going down hill fast.

Obama's Approval Rating Dips to New Low - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Domestic issues and not his response to terrorist threats - appear to be driving the president's approval rating downward.

Just 41 percent now approve of his handling of the economy, which Americans say is the nation's most pressing issue.

Forty-seven percent disapprove.

The president's marks on handling health care, with reforms still under debate in Congress, are even lower just 36 percent approve, while 54 percent disapprove.

Both of these approval ratings are the lowest of Mr. Obama's presidency.



TANKING comes to mind.

Can they go negative ? That could be another "first" in his book.

And overall as a president: 46 percent approve, 41% disapprove

57% approve of Obama's handling of the Xmas attack, 29% disapprove. 52% approval of terrorism handling, 36% disapprove

And this is after a bad month economically. A certain Republican in here posted an article of a Marketwatcher saying he has no doubt 2010 will have an even better job growth rate than the last 2 quarters of 2009. Considering these are his numbers and pocketbooks outweigh political alliances, I like his chances of winning re-election.

Gallup has his approval at 49%

RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

RCP has his approval at 48.2%, which is practically the same as it was on Dec 14, 2009.

Not much of a "tanking" ... now is it?

You Republicans ... and your silly threads !!!

Going down 2 points in a month is total chaos

And this was done right after the job loses in December were announced. Considering the direction of the GDP and stock market, as well as the fact mutual investments and 401K's are getting fatter this is about as low as you'll see Obama's ratings, barring some sort of disaster. That being said, his approval ratings today are still good enough to get him re-elected.
