Though the media did everything in its power to distract from Obama’s foreign policy meltdown last week, a new poll proves the media’s ability to impact public opinion just isn’t what it used to be.
According to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll taken this week, Obama’s approval rating for his handling of foreign policy fell from 53% to 49%.
Among Independents, the president might be in real trouble due to a drop of a full 12 points, from 53 to 41%.
In worse news for the president, this poll was taken before the news broke of the three day warning the White House had before the attack on the Libyan consulate that resulted in the deaths of four Americans. Once that news makes its way into the American conversation, these numbers certainly won’t get better.
