The hits keep on coming for the job approval ratings for President Barack Hussein Obama, or should we say the lack thereof.
According to the most recent PPP, Public Policy Polling data, Barack Obama’s job approval rating has reached an all time low of 45%. How low can he go. Just 45% of voters approve of the job Obama is doing while 52% disapprove. Like so many polls before Obama is struggling with White and Independent voters. They have all but left the Obama “hope & change” reservation.
Barack Obama’s hit a record low in PPP’s monthly national polling on his approval numbers. 45% of voters approve of the job he’s doing while 52% disapprove. This is the first time he’s topped the 50% disapproval mark in our surveys.
There isn’t any one smoking gun to point to in explaining Obama’s diminished standing. In the last month he’s seen small increases in the number of voters disapproving of him among Democrats (from 13% to 16%), Republicans (84% to 88%), and independents (55% to 56%) alike.
The two most troublesome things for Obama in his numbers at this point are his standing among white voters and independents. Whites now disapprove of Obama by nearly a 2:1 margin, with 62% giving him bad marks and only 35% saying he’s doing a good job. With independents his approval is just 40% and 56% disapprove of his performance.
Not to worry though Barack, its not as though it was these independents who got you elected in the first place.
The PPP poll is just one in a continual trend that has shown that the American public confidence has all but left Barack Obama. Poll after poll repeat the same data … Obama and Democrats in some serious trouble.
