Obama Approval sinks below 40% for the first time

President Obama's summer woes have dragged his approval rating to an all-time low, sinking below 40% for the first time in Gallup's daily tracking poll. New data posted Sunday shows that 39% of Americans approve of Obama's job performance, while 54% disapprove. Both are the worst numbers of his presidency. Obama's approval rating has hovered in the 40% range for much of 2011, peaking at 53% in the weeks following the death of Osama bin Laden. But Americans' view of his job performance continued to tick downward as the debt-ceiling debate heated up. By the time he signed legislation averting a federal default, he was mired in the low-40% range.

    I'm a little surprised it's that high. We all know the ilk of his supporters.

    It's probably been this low for quite a while. It depends on how much the Left wants us to know and who they ask.

    This is a call for all hispanic democrat voters in America. Please realize something very important, Obama used hispanics on the last election, don't let him do it again. Hispanics have always been on the bottom of his totem pole as far as priorities. He has had time for his friends, black people and muslims, that is it. He is taking America down. If he accomplishes what he has started with the help of the hispanic vote, our people will be culprits in America's future demise. We have nothing and everything to lose. We need to vote in a republican president, because anybody can do a better job for America than Obama, he has other interests in mind. It has been all to obvious, please do your homework and be alert with everything Obama does. He has broken almost every promise. We need a strong president who will know to get along with everyone. Washington has become unproductive and destructive. Obama doesn't mind and that should be a red flag. We need to start respecting each other again, that is the only way we can communicate with each other. The hispanic vote has become very important being there are many of us. Please trust anybody else but, OBAMA. I am pleading with you, do not take your vote lightly, more than ever before, every single vote counts. Please help to save America from the brink of disaster.

    I think a lot of people are influenced by unions and are blind to the facts. Some are leaches on society and looking for a free ride or living in Hollywood. Pretty diverse but not well versed.

    Nothing he is going to worry about for sure, He will just go out & make som more FALSE PROMISES & UN FOUNDED CHANGES that will never happen, Remeber he is the do as i say not as i do President. It's an election year & he & the administration will say & do anything the ozombies & sheep want to hear just for the votes..Hopefully it is a trend of those waking up & realizing the incompetence & failure of their future being flushed.

    But then there are the Obama boot lickers. I swear Obama could disembowel a live baby (preferably a cracker baby) on national TV, eat the entrails and pronounce it a good thing. His boot licker brigade would be ecstatic. Now we're having comparisons to Mandela, Ghandi and other prominent people from the past. Evidently the comparison to Abraham Lincoln gave little mileage to the notion that Obama is the reincarnation of Mr. Lincoln.

    So your Gallup poll is not working and you refer me to a Rasmussen report which STILL states that Obama has a Total Approval rating of 49% as of March 7th, 2012?

    Either you need to learn how to read polls correctly or unload the gun...
    shoot in foot

    Strange it says 48% approval, I thought it was 40%?
