Here is a graph of the decline (click to go to the page):
This is the first time his approval has dropped below 80% amongst Liberal Democrats. A 10 point drop in around a month.
As can be seen below, he's making slight gains with the Republicans, specifically Conservative Republicans.
What do you guys make of this? Why has this happened? What can he do to fix it? Can he be reelected without his base? What caused this in the first place? Is it politically safe to lose your base?
