Obama hits new low (again)

President Barack Obama‘s job approval ratings have hit a new low of 45%, according to the latest Daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen Reports. Rasmussen has generally tracked a tick or two lower than some of the other polling organizations, but is widely respected by political observers.

Like all presidents, Obama’s approval rating has trended downward since first taking office. What is noteworthy is the rate and steadiness of the decline, and the fact that it is Obama – who enjoyed such a pop cult of personality – who is experiencing diminishing public acclaim.
