The gold standard, Gallup that is.

Obama Weekly Approval Average Dips to New Low of 46%

Quote:
PRINCETON, NJ -- At 46%, President Obama's job approval average for the week ending May 30 is the lowest weekly average of his administration, one point below the previous low of 47% measured in April.
Quote:
Obama's end-of-May weekly average is lower than the single-survey ratings for all but two of the nine elected presidents since Eisenhower during May of those presidents' second years in office. Ronald Reagan's approval rating in a May 1982 survey was 45%, one point below Obama's current rating, and Jimmy Carter was at 43% in May 1978.
He's sucking it big time with Indies, with dems he's tied for the lowest rating so far.

Obama sucks plain and simple.

Not fit for command. Time to resign and allow a real man who can make a good decision take the job.

Move over and allow someone else who can handle the job in.

Gallup always does a weekly average on the approval. The 50% is just today.

He was at 45% earlier in the week - and his supporters are so desperate that they will take 50% as a good mark. Since he started at 70%, they might have a point.

Yeah, no doubt that Obama is taking a huge hit. In some ways, his eventual failure was assured before he even began office just by the fact that it would take years to come out of one of the worst economic recessions we've ever had. BP has been the nail in the coffin for him, I'm afraid - he should have handled those perceptions better, and the damage is done. Actually, all in all, I don't think he did a worse job than most anyone else who could be in office now - but he has clearly been unable to win the battle of perception, and thats half the battle itself.

You are right on the money and the longer the BP oil fiasco continues coupled with His Amnesty BS,High Unemployment,the next Foreclosure wave,mid term election results and whatever new disaster that comes on the scene we will see how badly He ages in the next 2+ years.
