According the most recent Gallup poll, President Barack Obama continues his nose dive in approval ratings, dropping to an all time low of 42%. Along those lines, the president's disapproval ratings continued to move up, now reaching an all time high of 49%. The upside down approval/disapproval ratings mark great dissatisfaction and a loss of trust, particularly among those individuals who consider themselves to be independents.
The Rasmussen poll showed similar numbers:
"The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17."
Despite all the positive press. Despite party control of both houses. Minus 17.
