President Obama’s approval rating is falling fast and still looking for a bottom, declining below 40 percent for the first time in more than two years in the Gallup daily tracking poll.
Americans, apparently, care about being lied to by their president. And they are seeing the skepticism they’ve long held about Obamacare confirmed as the program crashes on the launch pad.
Obama’s approval rating is at 39 percent today, while his disapproval stood at 53 percent. His approval was at 46 percent as recently as October 8.
The last time Obama was below 40 in the Gallup survey, which averages polling over the previous three days, was in October 2011. His numbers then started to rise as he headed toward reelection the following year.
