Obama Approval Rating Down to 38 Percent

"Mostly backwash"


President Barack Obama's job approval among American voters drops to a new low, a negative 38—57 percent, as the outlook for Democrats running for Congress and the U.S. Senate fades also, according to a national poll released today. He even gets a negative 41—49 percent among voters 18 to 29 years old and a lackluster 50—43 percent approval among Hispanic voters. 

The president's job approval compares to a negative 39—54 percent score in a November 12 survey by the independent Quinnipiac University.
