Obama at 39 percent
Since I’ve often mocked Republicans’ obsession with President Obama’s forever dropping-like-a-stone approval rating which never seems to get below 43 or 42 percent, I have to make a momentary exception to my pledge not to pay attention to his polls until 2012. Gallup’s tracking poll shows Obama at a week-long average of 40 percent approval including a three day period of 39 percent. That, FINALLY, is something new, and worth reporting as news. All those other reports and fervent Republican exclamations over the last year (“Obama hits new low!”, etc.) were not news, but olds; they were also not true, but false.
If you scroll down the chart at this link, Gallup shows an 81 percent approval rating from blacks.
