President SCOAMF’s job approval rating is caught in a funk. A new Gallup Poll shows the rating stood at 43 percent last week, identical to the prior four weeks. The president’s disapproval rating registered 49 percent last week, also unchanged from a week earlier.
To be sure, SCOAMF’s approval rating has recovered from his term low of 40 percent, which was recorded in August during the debt ceiling saga. Still, SCOAMF’s rating has sagged from the 45-50 percent range it occupied for much of the first half of the year. In January, it stood at 49 percent.
Honestly ... I can't believe there are 43% of those hootennannies that look at what this President has done and call in with approval.
