Gone are the Obama job approval numbers of 57% following the death of Bin Laden, welcome to reality President Obama.
A new CBS News poll reports that Barack Obama as back under 50% as the “Bin Laden” bounce is officially over.Barack Obama’s job approval rating of 48%. This President has yet to understand that his reelection chances are completely linked to JOBS, JOBS, JOBS and the economy. However, Obama’s liberal ideology stands in the way of America rebounding from tough economic times.
See results HERE.
Just 48 percent of respondents approve of the way he is doing his job, compared to a 57 percent in the days immediately following news of bin Laden’s demise.
Obama’s approval numbers hovered in the range below 50 percent for most of the past year, though they spiked after the early May announcement that a team of elite Navy SEALs had captured and killed the al Qaeda.
About 79 percent of the poll respondents said the economy is in bad shape, essentially unchanged from April but higher than the 74 percent who reported the condition of economy as poor in January.
Perhaps more disturbing for the White House is that about a third of the people think the economy is headed in the wrong direction.
All of the polling data as seen HERE, HERE and at RCP shows that Obama’s numbers are trending downward and Americans believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. Hardly a narrative one would want when facing reelection and the economy is the number one issue with voters.
