Much like Obama’s overall approval ratings, his job performance on various aspects of the country is in free fall too. On the economy, which is obviously the most important issue heading into next year’s election, Obama’s approval rating has crashed to a mere 26% approval! The previous low was 37% approval back in May according to Gallup’s polling. That’s an astounding 11 percentage point drop in just three months. Democrat as you expect think everything is just fine. A shocking 53% of self identified Democrats in this poll think Obama is doing just great on the economy. 52% also think he is doing great on the deficit!
Only 23% of independents approve of Obama’s performance on the economy. Just 19% of these people approve of his handling of the deficit.
