Obama Job Approval Average Slides to New Low

October 21, 2011

President Barack Obama’s 11th quarter in office was the worst of his administration, based on his quarterly average job approval ratings.

His 41% approval average is down six percentage points from his 10th quarter in office, and is nearly four points below his previous low of 45% during his seventh quarter.

Only one elected president since Dwight D. Eisenhower, Jimmy Carter, had a lower 11th quarter average than Obama. Carter averaged 31% during his 11th quarter, which was marked by a poor economy and high energy prices.
