Support of Obama Dwindling, Studies Show

Ad Feedback

A recent Gallup poll shows that President Barack Obama is continuing to lose ground with voters.

His approval rating has hit its lowest point since taking office, with just 38 percent of poll respondents saying they approve of the job the president is doing.

Obama is also losing support from those who identify themselves as liberal.

At the start of June, 79 percent of liberals supported the president. Now, Gallup says that number has dropped by 11 points to 68 percent.

In the same time frame, the president lost significant support in women voters, dropping from 52 of the support to 41 percent.

A new Rasmussen poll also reveals most Americans want President Obama's health care law repealed.

The survey's results run counter to predictions that the law would be widely accepted.

According to the survey, 57 percent of Americans support repeal. Only 37 percent oppose getting rid of it.

Just 34 percent of voters think the health care law will be good for the country.

Fifty-six percent think health care costs will go up under the new law, while only 15 percent believe they'll go do down.

Fifty-five percent of those surveyed also believe the law will increase the federal deficit.

Rasmussen surveyed 1,000 likely voters by phone from August 27-28, 2011. The poll had a margin of sampling error of plus or minus 3 percentage points, with a 95 percent level of confidence.
