Obama Approval Rating Drops to Record Low

Ad Feedback

A new Gallup Poll shows President Barack Obama's approval rating has reached a new low, dropping to 45 percent over the weekend. Obama's rating is lower than former President Bill Clinton's was at this same point in 1994.

It is significant stat because another Gallup Poll shows Republicans in the lead heading into congressional elections this fall. Republican support has climbed to 48 percent, while Democrat support has dropped to 44 percent.

The shift in support started three weeks ago when the Democrats pushed their health care overhaul through Congress. Obama's approval rating increased slightly during the time the bill was passed, but the slight boost in support did not last long.

Republicans also hold an 18 point lead when it comes to voter enthusiasm.

Gallup says the last time they saw Republicans doing this well in pre-election polls was also back in 1994. Republicans took majority control from the Democrats for the first time in 40 years that same year.
