Obama's Approval Rating Has Been Declining Over the Summer

More significant drop than was experienced by Clinton and George W. Bush during summers in their presidencies


PRINCETON, N.J., Aug. 19 (UPI) — U.S. President Obama's job approval rating has steadily declined during the summer months of his presidency since he took office, Gallup said Monday.

Obama had higher approvals in the earlier months in the years of his presidency because of events such as the death of al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden, Gallup said.
