Obama approval rating falls below 50 percent
The Tiffany network has finally come clean!
President Obama is extremely beatable in this upcoming election. It’s not even close with economic numbers this bad. And it’s all due to his own job killing policies. The man doesn’t know any better because he’s strictly an academic that doesn’t know how the real world works.
So no amount of speeches will help him dig out of his own mess.
President Obama's approval ratings fell to below 50 percent for the first time since his ratings spiked following the news of the death of Osama bin Laden last month, according to a CBS News poll released on Wednesday.
Just 48 percent of respondents approve of the way he is doing his job, compared to a 57 percent in the days immediately following news of bin Laden's demise.
Obama's approval numbers hovered in the range below 50 percent for most of the past year, though they spiked after the early May announcement that a team of elite Navy SEALs had captured and killed the al Qaeda.
About 79 percent of the poll respondents said the economy is in bad shape, essentially unchanged from April but higher than the 74 percent who reported the condition of economy as poor in January.
Perhaps more disturbing for the White House is that about a third of the people think the economy is headed in the wrong direction.
The U.S. economy added just 54,000 jobs in May, the fewest number of new workers in eight months. And the unemployment rate rose to 9.1 percent from 9.0 percent in April. No president has been re-elected since Franklin Roosevent when unemployment was above 7.2 percent.
