Obama's Disapproval Hits New High as His Handling of Ukraine Hits Low
According to The Washington Post, an Associated Press/GfK Poll shows "59 percent of Americans now disapprove of Obama -- a point higher than the previous high set in December."
His approval rating is at 41 percent, which is "the second lowest figure the poll has ever found."
At the same time, the poll shows that the Ukrainian crisis is hurting Obama.
According to the Associated Press, "close to 9 our of 10 Americans support sanctions as a response to Russia's annexation of the Crimean peninsula." And they give Obama "low marks for [how he handled] Russia's swoop into Ukraine."
This contributes to his "new low on international relations," where his approval is just 40 percent.
