Obama approval ratings fall despite improving jobs data: Poll

Press TV – March 14, 2012

The results of a new poll show US President Barack Obama’s approval ratings have plunged to 41 percent despite improving jobs data.

The last Monday survey, carried out by The New York Times newspaper and CBS News TV channel, show Obama’s approval rating has hit 41 percent, down nine percent from the 50 percent threshold, which an incumbent president generally needs to win a reelection, AFP reported.

With 47 percent of respondents disapproving of Obama’s overall performance, the poll results have cast doubt on his prospects for the upcoming November presidential election.

An earlier poll conducted by The Washington Post newspaper in conjunction with ABC news network also registered a drop in Obama’s approval rating, though the decrease was not quite so severe.

Only 46 percent of the surveyed individuals approved of Obama’s handling of his presidential duties and 50 percent disapproved due to rising gas prices.

The situation, the AFP report said, was a reversal from early February when 50 percent approved of the president’s performance and 46 percent disapproved.

Two-thirds of the respondents said they disapproved of the way Obama was handling rising pump prices which now average nearly four dollars a gallon (3.8 liters).

Meanwhile, another poll conducted by the University of Maryland’s Program on International Policy Attitudes, whose results were published on Tuesday, indicated that three out of four Americans are opposed to an attack against Iran’s nuclear facilities by the Israeli regime.

Moreover, 69 percent of American respondents stated that the US should pursue the policy of negotiations with Iran, with a large majority, adding that such talks should primarily take place through the United Nations Security Council.

According to the poll, the opposition of the Americans to a military strike against Iran was expressed by 79 percent of Democrats, 58 percent of Republicans, and 67 percent of independents.

    elections won’t make him go away. this puppet is here to loot the cash register as the liquor store is being torched behind him.

    Barry will get another term. count on it. or else, the fucker will cancel the election due to WAR ON IRAN by then.
