According to the latest opinion poll released by The Washington Post-ABC News, President Obama's approval rating is sinking.
“In the new poll, 46 per cent approve of the way Mr. Obama is handling his job, while 50 per cent disapprove. That’s a mirror image of his 50 to 46 positive split in early February."
Some are speculating that this is because of rising gas prices, which Newt Gingrich has pushed to tie to Obama. Others say it is because of the mandate to pay for birth control in insurance plans. They theorize that women are turning against Obama because of that.
Whatever the cause, the numbers are in and some people are celebrating. A cursory perusal of Twitter reactions takes the temperature of the right.
#Rush: "This new CBS/NYT poll is the LOWEST approval rating ever for Obama. They (MSM) fail to report that."
http://t.co/Iif4dQk3 Any "definitive" answer = probably made-upGood for the NYT for not offering simple explanations for Obama's poll drop:
President Obama's approval rating is up in the Gallup tracking poll likely because it included the jobs numbers, but other new polls didn't.
Mr. Obama is clocking in today at a 41% approval Rating. People see that we are not in Economic Recovery. The truth is Being seen now.
I love how the left considers Limbaugh's comments a gift to Obama. What's that approval rating, again? D'oh!!!
@GGordonLiddy: Obama's approval rating is falling to the low 40s. What do you think Obama should do to boost his poll numbers?” RESIGN!“
Obama at 41% approval rating, lowest in his presidency. Given the liberal source of the poll, it's probably far worse. Gas prices?
