Gallup Poll Now Has Obama Under Water in Job Approval, 45% Approve – 46% Disapprove … Now Stock Market Falls
More bad polling data for “The One”.
Add the Gallup poll to a list of many that have President Barack Obama’s job approval under water and trending downward. The most recent Gallup poll has Obama’s job approval at 45% approval, 46% disapprove. Obama finds himself under the 50% threshold that is most important for incumbents who are looking for reelection.
At Gallup to a myriad of polls, Rasmussen, Fox News, CBS, CNN, Quinnipiac and ABC/WAPO that all have Barack Obama under 50% approval rating and trending down. Obama’s “Bin Laden” bounce is obviously done and now Obama will face the ramifications of a poor economy and no jobs.
UPDATE I: With gas prices high, unemployment rising and the number of new first time unemployment claims rising as well … add a falling stock market to the list as the Dow Jones Industrial Average closes below 12000 for the first time since mid-March. The NASDAQ is now has turned negative for the year. Thanks President Obama.
