This is your notice that Gallup will no longer be used, We will be using the poll with the highest approval rating.

As the economy sinks so will Obama's ratings. Not necessarily because of what he did, is doing or wants to do but because he is the President "today" not last year or the year before.

People see the economy tanking and do not know that it is the culmination of years of greed and corruption coming to a head. They just see Obama "promising to fix it" and that promise doesn't come true within 7 days.

Obama did it to himself. He made promises he could not keep, false sightings of "green shoots" and times of too much happy talk. You can't make the economy turn around because you said so.
He can bully Congress and the media, but the economy is a bit bigger than that.

At the same time, approval of President Obama's handling of the economy dipped into negative territory, with 46% approving and 48% disapproving. In Quinnipiac's previous survey, Obama enjoyed a 57/36 approval/disapproval rating on his handling of the economy in Ohio, a net 23-point decline in just two months.

These trends aren't confined to Ohio. A new poll in Virginia by PPP shows Obama's approval rating under 50% there as well, with a majority of Independents (52%) now disapproving of the job he's doing as President. And Gallup's national daily tracking poll shows Obama's job approval at an all time low of 56%.

I STRONGLY disagree with this statement. Obviously President Obama isn't entirely to blame but this STRONGLY has to do with the course he is taking us down. That is on nobody but himself.
