Obama Job Approval Falls to 39 Percent

Gallup’s three-day rolling average for the President’s approval rating has fallen to 39 percent.

The newest Gallup graph begins in February of 2009 when Obama enjoyed an approval rating approaching 70 percent, but by this week, his approval numbers have fallen to a dismal 39 percent.

Obama’s disapproval rating has made an equally long journey but in the opposite direction. Starting out in 2009 at less than 20 percent, Obama’s disapproval has soared to 52 percent today.

Gallup tracks daily the percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as president. Daily results are based on telephone interviews with approximately 1,500 national adults; the margin of error is +/-3 percentage points.
