    Barack Obama sees worst poll rating drop in 50 years

    Gallup recorded an average daily approval rating of 53 per cent for Mr Obama for the third quarter of the year, a sharp drop from the 62 per cent he recorded from April.
    His current approval rating hovering just above the level that would make re-election an uphill struggle is close to the bottom for newly-elected president. Mr Obama entered the White House with a soaring 78 per cent approval rating.
    The bad polling news came as Mr Obama returned to the campaign trail to prevent his Democratic party losing two governorships next month in states in which he defeated Senator John McCain in last November's election.
    Jeffrey Jones of Gallup explained: "The dominant political focus for Obama in the third quarter was the push for health care reform, including his nationally televised address to Congress in early September.
    Hey, the idiot is loosing against Fox, and the American people see him for the socialist he is.

    Article seems misleading at best.

    Obama's been in the 50's for four months, where most Presidents spend their time.

    I recall Bush down in the 20's ... maybe it was a slower "drop" though.

    It was a slower drop. By this time in his administration bush was somewhere in the 60's. Obama is dropping precipitously. It's easy to forget this is only been some 9 months since the start of his administration.

    Yes and in the days and months after the 9-11 attacks he enjoyed higher poll numbers than that, but that changed why was that?

    Goldendog and all his followers who bow and scrape at his feet, worship a false god.

    We could listen to you talk about real news like Keith Olberman.
