Obama Hits Thirties for First Time in Real Clear Poll of Polls by John Nolte 3 Dec 2013 post a comment Share This: Monday I wrote about President Obama tanking to a new low in the Real Clear Politics' poll of polls. At the time, Obama sat at 40%. Today the president crossed the psychological threshold into the thirties. He now sits, for the first time, at 39.9% in the Real Clear Politics average of job approval polls. That is a 14 point plummet since the beginning of the year.
