President Barack Obama is contending with the lowest approval rating of his 20-month presidency, a new CNN/Opinion Research Corporation poll finds.
The president’s approval rating now stands at 42 percent – an all time low in CNN polling and 8 points lower than where Obama was only three weeks ago. Moreover, 56 percent of all Americans think the president has fallen short of their expectations
Down eight points in three weeks? Yikes. Also note that this is just a poll of “adults.” If the sample was registered or likely voters, the results would probably be even worse.
