Barack Obama is nearing the 30% threshold … An early Christmas gift to America.
The 2010 midterms have come and gone and President Barack Obama’s job approval numbers are still falling. In the latest Fox News Opinion Dynamics poll, Obama has hit 40% job approval, while 51% now disapprove of the job that “The One” has done. Obama has a 10% approval rating among Republicans, 37% with Independents and an amazing low 75% with Democrats. It continues to be a worrisome ride to the 2012 elections for Obama.
Overall, 40 percent of voters approve and 51 percent disapprove of the job Obama is doing. While that is close to his previous rating of 41 percent approval and 50 percent disapproval in late October, the new ratings are his lowest to date.
Obama’s approval rating among Democrats stands at 75 percent, and 70 percent among self-identified liberals — both are record lows.

Other notable data from the Fox poll is that only 35% of voters believe that Obama deserves reelection; however, looking forward to 2012, 29% of voters predict Obama will be re-elected, down from 44% who thought so a year ago.
About a third of voters (35 percent) think Obama deserves to be re-elected. A slim 53 percent majority says the country would be better off with someone else.
Democrats are alone in thinking Obama deserves another term (67 percent). Most Republicans (84 percent) and half of independents (50 percent) disagree. And one in five Democrats (20 percent) think the country would be better off with someone else as president.
