Even CBS News is now pointing out his slipping approval rating figures:
President Obama’s approval rating has fallen six points in the past month, a new CBS News poll finds, amid growing skepticism about his handling of the economy and questions about the impact of the stimulus package.
The president’s current approval rating, which is 57 percent, is still relatively high. But it has fallen 11 points from its peak of 68 percent in April, and has also dropped since last month’s mark of 63 percent. His disapproval rating, meanwhile, has risen from 23 percent in April to 32 percent today.
Ah yes, it’s still relatively high in this relatively crappy economy, where the unemployment rate is still somewhat relatively growing, and people are relatively getting sick of it.
Meanwhile, over at Rasmussen…
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 28% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –8 (see trends).
