PRINCETON, NJ - The latest Gallup Daily tracking three-day average shows 41% of Americans approving of the job Barack Obama is doing as president. That ties his low as president, which he registered three times previously -- twice in August 2010 and once in October 2010.
July 2009-April 2011 Trend: Do you approve or disapprove of the way Barack Obama is handling his job as president? % Approve
The current 41% approval rating from April 12-14 polling includes interviews conducted before and after Obama announced his plan for deficit reduction on Wednesday. It also comes in the same week Congress is voting on the 2011 budget deal reached last Friday. The deal did not seem to have an immediate effect on the way Americans viewed Obama, given his 44% approval rating in the three days prior to the agreement and his 46% rating in the initial days after the agreement.
The economy is likely also a factor in Obama's declining ratings. Though unemployment is improving according to government estimates, the economic recovery remains slow and is being challenged by rising fuel prices. Presidents' approval ratings have historically suffered in times of high gas prices.

I’m surprised that his approval rating is that high.
I guess 41% of the French must have approved of the way the guillotine was cutting their heads off, too.
He is in a maelstrom of his own making.
Drill, Baby Drill!!
Subtract the “I don’t want the pollster to think I am a racist so I will say I approve even though I would never vote for him” people and you would easily be in the low to mid 30’s. Crash and burn baby.
Wonder what the democrats and their media allies will cook up?
Same here... If Obozo was drilling and doing everything he could to prevent this I would not mind as much. But this is being done on purpose....Guess what is next? He will step in and declare that he (the messiah) will regulate the price and control the “evil” oil companies. That is his next step of destruction....
If anything close to 41% of the population really approves of “Obama”, we’re unlikely to get out of this mess without bloodshed.
I heard his approval is so low that Kenyans are claiming he was born in Hawaii.
He has ALL of TV, the media and Hollywood churning out propaganda that he is god on earth and a saint. Fox is covering for him too. The public, for the most part - especially TV viewers, are sheep.
Trade in that gas guzzler for a Chevy Volt, polluting scum!
If you think gas prices are high and continuing upward, check out your food costs at your local supermarket. We are asleep at the wheel while dictator, Herr Obama and his Democrat Party destroy America.
Just think how low it would be if he did not have MSM? CNN used to have a daily watch on Bush’s low approval didn’t they?
They are not policies - they are designed to enrich his freinds (Saudis and others) and screw Americans. It is all designed to destroy the middle class and upper middle class. This is what Chavez did and many others.
The sheep watching TV lap up the propaganda and empower him.
“If you think gas prices are high and continuing upward, check out your food costs at your local supermarket.”
And Silver is at $42.50!
What is his rating without the urban areas calculated in?
