If the White House thought the president’s approval ratings would no longer dip, they were wrong.
Two new polls released today show President Obama with his lowest approval ratings since he came into office.
Obama’s ratings are now lower than those for Ronald Reagan and Bill Clinton at the same time in their presidencies.
The latest survey from the Washington Post andABC News finds approval of Obama has fallen to 43 percent, while for the first time a majority (53 percent) disapproves. The results from the new NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll finds nearly identical results — 44 percent approve and 51 percent disapprove. The low ratings confirm downward trends seen in most other public polls over the summer.
