GALLUP: AMERICANS DISAPPROVE OF OBAMA POLICY ON NEARLY EVERY ISSUE

President Barack Obama will deliver his State of the Union address on Tuesday to a nation that disapproves of the way he is handling nearly every issue, including gun control and the federal deficit. 

According to a Gallup poll, 42% of Americans approve of Obama's gun policies while 54% disapprove. 

On taxes, 41% approve and 57% disapprove. On the economy, 39% approve and 60% disapprove. On "the situation in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians," 36% approve and 55% disapprove. 

And on the federal budget deficit, 31% approve and 65% disapprove. 

The only area in which Obama gains the support of a majority is on "national defense" issues, but the poll was conducted before North Korea reportedly tested a nuclear weapon on Monday as Obama seeks to diminish America's nuclear arsenal. 

Gallup conducted its poll from Feb. 7-10.

Not too bad ...I've seen worse with a second term president...check out the link...

This is 2013 poll...people are waiting on a miracle and it's just not going to occur from either political side. Long wars (Iraq and Afghanistan) cost soooo much money...He got re-elected because no one liked Romney....Why...I don't know...but what we need is a miracle and I just don't see one happening in the near future regardless of who's in control.

Of course there are Americans that dissaprove of policies.  There are Americans that approve of some policies.

And given the divsive political atmosphere now, and the fact that some folks get their news from breitbart, who would ever be surprised?

Assuming the poll is accurate, and that is an assumption, it shows that Americans believe the pres. main job is national defense, and international politics. They understand that the budget is passed by Congress, and laws, including tax laws are handled through Congress.

The answers are easy, knowing the right questions to ask, that's the tricky part.
