For the first time, more Americans now disapprove of the job President Obama is doing than approve.
According to a new CNN/Opinion Research survey, 48% of Americans approve of the job President Obama is doing and 50% disapprove.. The 48% approval is a 7 point drop in approval from last month.
Said pollster Keating Holland: “The poll indicates that the biggest drop in approval comes from non college educated white voters. That’s one indication among many that Obama’s growing unpopularity may be more related to unemployment and the poor economy.”
For weeks I have argued that very soon, the economy will cease to be Bush’s recession and will become Obama’s recession. On January 20th, 2010, Obama will have been president one year and to Americans out of work and falling behind on their bills and mortgages, they will begin to point their finger — rightfully so, at President Obama for their financial situation.
