Obama dips under 40 percent in new poll
President Barack Obama’s nearing his all-time low approval rating in Gallup polling.
According to Gallup’s latest daily tracking poll, which was conducted Saturday through Monday and released Tuesday afternoon, 39 percent of Americans approve of the job the President’s doing in the White House, with 53 percent saying they disapprove.
Obama’s all-time low approval rating in Gallup polling was 38 percent, which he briefly sank to in 2011, and his disapproval rating rose to a record 54 percent that same year.
The president’s approval rating has stood in the low to mid 40’s in most non-partisan live operation national polls conducted over the past couple of weeks.
Obama’s approval rating, in the aftermath of his 2012 re-election, hovered in the low 50’s in most surveys around the time of second inauguration in January of this year.
A president’s standing in public opinion polling is considered a gauge of his clout.
