Play the latest “Where’s Waldo” game … Where is there an Obama jobs approval poll even close to 50%?
President Barack Obama now has a new job approval lows in a CBS News poll. Obama has sunk to a 43% approval rating while 50% disapprove. Making matters worse for President Obama, only 37% of Independents approve of Obama’s job as President. The Obama Presidency is a political death by a thousand cuts. Job cuts that is.
As concerns about the struggling U.S. economy grow, a new CBS News/New York poll finds that President Obama’s overall approval rating has dropped to 43 percent, the lowest so far of his presidency in CBS News polling. In addition, his disapproval rating has reached an all-time high of 50 percent.
Views of the president’s job performance are marked by a striking degree of polarization along party lines — the vast majority of Democrats approve (78 percent), while even more Republicans disapprove (89 percent) of how he’s handling his job. But only 37 percent of independents approve, with 54 percent disapproving.
It gets worse for Obama, 72% polled believe the country is headed in the wrong direction. Only 34% approve of Obama’s handling of the economy, 40% approval on job creation and only 25% think that Obama has done anything to fix the economy. Just curious … how does Obama get approval ratings in the 30′s and in the 70′s that the country is headed in the wrong direction,. yet Obama has a 43% approval? Me thinks those on the LEFT are not being consistent in their polling.
In poll after poll after poll, President Barack Obama is sinking fast. However, as pointed out by the Left Coast Liberal, now the Obama backed state run media outlets are turning on Obama was well. When Obama loses CBS and the NY Times, what else is “LEFT”?
