The numbers for President Obama just keeps getting worse. The latest Quinnipac University Poll finds that the president poll numbers fall to the lowest numbers of his presidency. From Quinnipac University:
A year after President Barack Obama’s political honeymoon ended, his job approval rating has dropped to a negative 44 – 48 percent, his worst net score ever.
It gets worse if the election were held today President Obama would lose to an un-named Republican 36% to 39%:
American voters say by a narrow 39 – 36 percent margin that they would vote for an unnamed Republican rather than President Obama in 2012, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today.
This compares to a 48 – 43 percent approval for Obama in a May 26 national poll by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University and a 57 – 33 percent approval last July, just before the political firestorm created by opposition to his health care plan galvanized political opponents and turned independent voters against him.
The president continues to lose independent voters:
In this latest survey of more than 2,000 voters, independent voters disapprove of Obama 52 – 38 percent and say 37 – 27 percent they would vote for a Republican contender in 2012.
The voters have lost confidence in the President:
American voters also say 48 – 40 percent Obama does not deserve reelection in 2012.
