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.
The only question I have is, who are these 39% of people who still think Obama is doing a good job. Are there really that many Obama zombies running around with their brains scooped out? Is this the fault of our broken public school system?
I suppose that Obama still has a lot of support from the African-American community because he is the first Black president. If I were Black, however, I would be reminding everyone who would listen of the fact that he is half-white.
I can’t wait for some more hope and change in 2012.
