39 percent Job Approval Rating for Obama

At least, Jimmy Carter won't be alone as the worst President to sit in the Oval Office..........

(Zogby)- President Barack Obama’s job approval rating has fallen again to 39%, equaling a low since he took office. Also, 63% of likely voters say Obama is a weak leader, compared to 19% who label him strong.

Much of the slippage in Obama’s approval rating from 42% on Dec. 1 was caused by a drop of nine percentage points among Democrats (82% to 73%). His approval also went down among independents, from 39% to 36%. Just 7% of Republicans approve. His approval was also 39% on Nov. 22.

These results are from a Zogby Interactive poll of 1,914 likely voters conducted from Dec. 8-10, 2010.

The survey also finds voters fairly split as to whether Obama has done better, worse or about the same as other presidents in keeping his campaign promises. However, only 29% rated how well he has kept his promises as excellent (4%) or good (25%). He is rated poor on this question by 42% and fair by 27%.
