President Obama's Approval Rating

June 02, 2010

President Barack Obama enjoyed a 68% approval rating from Americans in the first Gallup Poll job approval rating of his administration. Considering he now sits at 46% and 45% in polls like Gallup and Rasmussen, respectively, what has been the trend in his job approval rating, and in what direction is it going?

There are several websites that provide an aggregate of all major polls conducted on the President’s job approval, and the polling conducted on his handling of issues like health care, foreign policy and the economy.

The following sources have some great summaries of President Obama’s approval rating:

It will make for an interesting study to monitor the trend over the coming months, especially after Americans grow increasingly frustrated over the President’s handling of issues like unemployment and the federal deficit.
