Obama's approval drops 8 points in one month


quote:

Washington (CNN) – President Barack Obama's approval rating dropped eight percentage points over the past month, to 45%, the president's lowest rating in more than a year and a half, according to a new national poll.

The poll indicates that for the first time in Obama’s presidency, half of the public says they don't believe he is honest and trustworthy.

quote:

The president's approval rating stands at 45%, down from 53% in mid-May. And 54% say they disapprove of how Obama's handling his job, up nine points from last month. It's the first time in CNN polling since November 2011 that a majority of Americans have had a negative view of the president.

"The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.

The president also dropped 10 points among independent voters, from 47% last month to 37% now, with Obama's disapproval among independents jumping 12 points to 61%.

In a related poll, more Americans are racist.

It's sad it's even that high?
Guess the two party system is doing it's thing though. We supported Obama in 2008 while hoping for real change in Washington. We realized our terrible mistake and wanted to hold Obama's Administrations bad governing ways accountable before last election. With recent events & scandals, our election actions where totally justified. But some still defend this Administrations obvious incompetence or corrupt Governing ways. This kind of accountability always end well......LOL

We're far from the perfect voters who should know everything our Government is doing. But when we see wrong doings, we call it for what it is! Wrong is wrong no matter what party does it. We wish all Americans would make our politicians accountable, no matter what party they're part of.

Elections have consequences. Too bad the idiots that voted for him didn't pay attention.

You are half right. Obama will never get impeached, and his approval rating will never go to 0%. There are African Americans who will approve of him even if he kills his wife and kids and reinstitutes slavery in the United States.

He's slowly getting a bigger limp in his lame duck presidency. A few more downward points and he'll be one-legging it.

True but his approval rating very much matters for the 2014 cycle.

He's at 34-64 with whites and 69-30 with non-whites. It doesn't break down non-whites into black, latino, asian, middle eastern, etc.

He's at 40-58 with men and 49-50 with women.

Those numbers suggest racism, no matter who is looking at them. Either the whites are racists, or the non-whites are racists.
