GALLUP: Barack Obama’s Every Shrinking 2013 Job Approval Rating … Subtitled, Honey I Shrunk My Job Approval
Hmm, I sense a trend here … subtitled, ‘Honey, I Shrunk My Job Approval,’ or ‘Ive Fallen and I Can’t Get Up’.
President Barack Obama saw not only his job approval rating consistently fall in 2013, Obama saw his credibility do so as well as more and more Americans no longer think that “the Obamamessiah” is trustworthy. Barack Obama has earned his sinking job approval numbers which show no signs of really rebounding in 2014. Much of Obama’s decline in job approval comes from self inflicted wounds like the continuous scandals from his presidency like IRS-gate, NSA-gate and Benghazi-gate to name just a few. However, the biggest issue Obama will have to deal with is the Obamacare lie. That is not going away any time soon and Americans are going to be feeling the pain of this unpopular law and Obama’s signature piece of legislation for months and years to come. Obama’s poll numbers also have a reverse-coattails effect for Democrats in 2014 as Obama is more of and anchor weighing candidates running for election than a benefit.
President Barack Obama wrapped up 2013 with an average 41% approval rating in December, unchanged from November. However, his monthly job approval declined steadily through most of 2013, including a three-percentage-point drop in March.
Gallup’s three-day rolling averages of Obama’s job approval rating are especially helpful in identifying the events that likely contributed to his overall decline in popularity.
It has been less common to see sustained periods of significant decline during the normal course of a presidency, such as what Obama experienced this year, his fifth in office. The few examples of these from recent presidencies are.
