Obama hits 39% job approval

How low can he go? Its only 1 poll but the 1st one that puts him under 40% approval rating.
Quote:
Zogby Interactive: Obama Falls to 39%, As Support from Democrats Continues to Slide; He Trails Romney, J. Bush & Gingrich in '12

Those Saying U.S. on Wrong Track Hits High Under Obama of 69%


UTICA, New York - President Barack Obama's job approval rating has dropped to the lowest point of his Presidency at 39%, and in potential match-ups with Republicans in 2012, he trails Mitt Romney, Jeb Bush and Newt Gingrich and is just one point ahead of Sarah Palin.

Ouch. However, I didn't vote for him in 2008, so I'm not too concerned. I'm personally hoping Gingrich runs in '12.

It's Zogby. They're sometimes way off, and often a bit dodgy. I'll wait for Ramussen or Gallup.

Zogby tends to paint a somewhat rosy picture for Dems. Rasmussen track record has been more accurate.

One can only hope!

But seriously, I thought a kick in the pants by the voters would make this administration seriously re-think how they've been doing things, and tack to the center. Up to now, I don't see any indication of that.

Then there are people like myself who do not believe for a minute he will tack to the center. They believe as I do that he is an entrenched ideologue with no practical experience in the real world and no idea how to manage anything, much less do so pragmatically.

I think you can well say the same for his remaining supporters.
I can't see him going under 35%, regardless of his antics

What he does is of no concern, it's what he was seen to be.
and they aren't going to see anything else but what they want to.
