68% Say Nation Headed in Wrong Direction
UTICA, New York - President Barack Obama's job approval rating has fallen again to 39%, equaling a low since he took office. Also, 63% of likely voters say Obama is a weak leader, compared to 19% who label him strong.
Much of the slippage in Obama's approval rating from 42% on Dec. 1 was caused by a drop of nine percentage points among Democrats (82% to 73%). His approval also went down among independents, from 39% to 36%. Just 7% of Republicans approve. His approval was also 39% on Nov. 22.
These results are from a Zogby Interactive poll of 1,914 likely voters conducted from Dec. 8-10, 2010.
