Only 39% Would Vote to Re-elect Obama. Isn't this pretty low?

Just 48% approve of the job Obama is doing, while 46% disapprove, the poll shows. That's down from a 61% approval rating Obama sported in an Allstate/National Journal poll conducted in April '09.

Voters have lost faith in Obama to craft solutions to the country's economic challenges. Just 39% say they trust Obama more than GOPers in Congress, while 32% say they believe the GOP has the right ideas. That 7-point gap is down from a 29-point Obama advantage in the April '09 poll.

Only 39% of voters said they would vote to re-elect Pres. Obama if the election were held today, while 50% say they would vote for someone else. A quarter of voters would definitely vote to re-elect Obama, while 37% would definitely vote for someone else.

  • Well, his approval rating is STILL below 50. I wish he would just go play golf, with Joe, Harry, and Nancy, and let the grown-ups figure out how to get us out of the mess they got us into....

    Wow... People are still spewing this line, eh? That must be the logic used by those in the remaining 39% who haven't woken up yet.  Hopefully the thrills stop running up their leg and reality kicks in. jmo

    But, what is better now than when he took office? The national debt? no. The deficit? nope. The unemployment rate? not a chance. Government takeover of private industry? Ahhh, THERE we go! I get it now. Yeah, he's not doing so bad in THAT area...
