Obama's Job Approval Numbers Drops Sharply

Ad Feedback

President Obama is suffering his lowest job approval numbers in nearly two years, according to the latest McClatchy-Marist poll.

The poll puts Obama's job performance at 41 percent, down sharply from the 50 percent he had in April.

Republicans in Congress didn't do too well, either. Their numbers sank to 22 percent, and only one-third of registered voters approved of the Democrats' performance.

The lack-luster economy, overseas turmoil, and numerous scandals swirling around the White House have all contributed to the president's low numbers.

"When (Obama) gets away from talking about the economy, numbers have a tendency to slide," Lee Miringoff, director of the Marist Institute for Public Opinion at Marist College in New York, which conducted the poll, said.
