President Barack Obama’s economic speaking tour has driven his economic approval ratings down even further to just 35%, according to a new Gallup poll released on Thursday.
In early June, Obama’s economic approval rating stood at 42%. He then embarked upon a robust speaking tour on the economy, wherein he promised to do nothing but focus on getting the American economy moving.
“I care about one thing and one thing only, and that’s how to use every minute of the 1,276 days remaining in my term to make this country work for working Americans again,” Obama promised in a long speech at Knox College in Galesburg, Illinois.
Two months of presidential rhetoric, however, have not stopped Americans' impressions of Obama's economic performance from falling even further.
