Gallup’s latest numbers are a real eye-opener. The polling company now has Barack Obama’s approval rating at just 39 percent, the lowest level of his presidency, and down 13 percentage points since the start of June. Gallup finds that 54 percent of Americans now disapprove of the president’s job performance. And according to the RealClear Politics average of several major polls, a staggering 73.8 percent of Americans now believe the country is moving down the wrong track. .
Obama’s low personal ratings are coupled with widespread disillusionment with the condition of the US economy in Gallup’s surveys. 53 percent of Americans now rate the economy as poor (as opposed to just eight percent who believe it is good/excellent) and 79 percent say the economic outlook is getting worse.
So Barack has surpassed Jimmy Carter who was without a doubt the most incompetent president in US History.
That's quite an accomplishment. It's going to be very interesting to see how his camp will spin and lie and twist this story.
