This from Gallup:
And the Wall Street Journal sums up the new Quinnipiac Poll:
Altogether, Obama's ratings on being a strong and decisive leader are down a total of 21 percentage points since taking office, compared with a 15-point decline on understanding Americans' daily problems and a 9-point decline in sharing their values. Obama's overall job approval rating declined 16 points over the same time period.
The latest Quinnipiac University poll gives President Barack Obama the lowest approval ratings of his presidency, with a majority of Americans saying he does not deserve another term in the White House.None of this comes as a surprise as we have witnessed Obama's overreach on health care paired with a near total absence of leadership on key issues like the budget, the Gulf Oil Spill and the Middle East crisis.
As Mr. Obama gears up for re-election, 48% of American voters disapprove of the job he’s doing while 42% approve of it. The numbers are even worse when it comes to whether he deserves another four-year term in the White House, with 50% saying “no” and 41% saying “yes.”
Both sets of numbers show a steady decline from a Quinnipiac poll on March 3, when his approval ratings split evenly, 46%-46%. This recent batch of polling comes as gas prices are on the rise, unemployment continues to hover around 9% and the U.S. military has intervened in Libya to prevent Col. Moammar Gadhafi from attacking his own people.
The poll showed Mr. Obama running neck and neck with an unnamed Republican (Mr. Obama, 36%, a GOP challenger, 37%.)
To paraphrase Rev. Wright once again, Obama's chickens are coming home to roost!
