President Obama’s Economic Ratings Hit Their “Lowest Points Since He Took Office”

After Democrats have spent the last two days continuing their push for a blank check on future debt and new federal spending, a new CBS/New York Times poll confirms that President Obama’s approval rating on the economy has hit its “lowest point since he took office.

According To A CBS/New York Times Poll, Only 34 Percent Of Americans Approve Of President Obama’s Handling Of The Economy, Which Represents “The Lowest Point Since He Took Office.” “Just 34 percent of Americans said in the CBS/Times poll that they approved of the way Obama was handling the economy, the lowest point since he took office. That figure also reflects a downward slide since mid-February.” (Michael O’Brien, “Poll: Obama Gets Big Bounce, But Handling Of Economy At All-Time Low,” The Hill’s “Blog Briefing Room” Blog, 5/4/11)

“Fifty-Five Percent Said They Disapprove Of The Way Obama Is Handling The Economy, Not The Lowest Figure Of His Presidency (That Was 57 Percent, In Mid-April), But Close To It.” (Michael O’Brien, “Poll: Obama Gets Big Bounce, But Handling Of Economy At All-Time Low,” The Hill’s “Blog Briefing Room” Blog, 5/4/11)
