Obama Approval Ratings Take a Hit

Gas prices are up, which is bad news for President Obama’s approval rating, which has seen a significantly negative turn in response to the rising costs at the pump. While last month, 44 percent of those polled approved of Obama’s handling of the economy and 53 disapproved, now 59 percent disapprove while only 38 percent approve. More specifically, 65 percent of the public disapproves of how the president is handling the “situation with gas prices,” with only 26 percent saying they approve.
