Record Disapproval for Obama in Gallup Poll

Record Disapproval for Obama in Gallup Poll:


Updated 10:15 p.m. | President Barack Obama lodged his worst-ever disapproval Saturday in the Gallup tracking poll — another ominous sign for Democrats scrambling on defense ahead of the midterm elections less than a month away.

While the Gallup tracking poll is notoriously noisy, the 57 percent who disapprove of his performance marks a new high for the president, while his approval rating, 39 percent, is just a tick above his all-time low.

Obama had hit 56 percent disapproval a couple of times in the Gallup tracker during his presidency.

But he’s less popular in the Gallup poll than he was than during either of his elections or the 2010 midterms, when the Democratic House was wiped out.
