Poll: Obama’s Approval Ratings Hit New Lows

Since early March President Obama’s approval rating has dropped 4 percentage points.

 

President Barack Obama’s approval rating and prospects for reelection have plunged to all-time lows in a Quinnipiac University poll released Wednesday.

 

Half of the registered voters surveyed for the poll think that the president does not deserve a second term in office, while 41 percent say he does.

 

The decline in support for a second Obama term comes as his approval rating has dropped 4 percentage points since early March, landing at 42 percent – a record low – in the poll released Wednesday. His disapproval rating has risen from 46 percent to 48 percent.

 

The downward shift may in part be the result of dissatisfaction over U.S involvement in Libya, with 47 percent of those surveyed saying they oppose it. By a margin of 58 percent to 29 percent, registered voters said that Obama has not clearly stated U.S. goals for the mission.
