President Obama’s poll numbers appear to be in free fall.
The latest Gallup poll shows Obama hitting a new low of 26% approval on his handling of the economy, down 11 points since it was last measured in mid-May and well below his previous low of 35% in November 2010.
Obama earns similarly low approval for his handling of the Federal budget deficit at 24% and on creating jobs Obama scores 29%.
The president and his family are spending their summer vacation in a $50,000 a week farm on Martha’s Vineyard paid for by the U.S. taxpayers.
