President Barack Obama is taking a long Fathers Day weekend vacation in California as his administration founders under the weight of accumulating damage from myriad scandals, an un-stemmed flood of illegal alien children on the U.S. southern border and the near collapse of Iraq.
The Gallup poll three day average of Obamas approval-disapproval released Sunday, June 15 has his disapproval hitting 55%, tying the record high Gallup disapproval set in late August 2011.
Obamas approval rating is at 40% putting him underwater by a remarkable 15 points.
Obamas approval-disapproval has trended downward quickly from just two days ago on June 13 when he stood at 43% approval to 51% disapprovalan 8 point spread.
Heading in to this weekend Iraq was in danger of being overrun by the Sunni terrorist group ISIS; the IRS informed the House Friday afternoon that it had allegedly lost two years of emails by IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner; U.S. Border Patrol agents were sounding the alarm about Obamas anarchy on the southern border and the fallout from the deadly VA scandal and Obamas trade with the Taliban of five senior terrorists for the Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were till reverberating. The news media, as can be expected, is ignoring this latest collapse in Obamas support.
Just last week, Gallup announced that it was expected Obamas support would stay steady at 44% for the month of June.

What a nasty man. It’s father’s day and he chose this golfing and campaigning tour instead of being with his daughters. They won’t forget.
Yeah, but at some point they’ll find out who their REAL father is.
Which, ironically, simply goes to show how meaningless this latest number is. Recall the election Obama lost shortly after the August 2011 survey? Neither does anybody else.
Anyone who voted for him in 2008 deserves ridicule.
Anyone who voted for him in 2012 deserves contempt.
They are and always have been props. They could care less at this point.
I thought one of his daughters went with them,
I can understand the others disappointment
at not being able to caddy.
Add mocked, laughed at, and isolated from the rest of us.
We are seeing crisis overload and something is going to break.
I still think there was a lot of hanky panky.
Don’t you remember all the pictures from the wedding with Michelle and the pictures of 0bama holding his baby girls? I remember seeing ..........................................
Come to think of it they both resemble Moochelle but not the Obamanation.
Don't ask me what I can do for my country, ask what's in it for me!
Remarkable that it isn't 100%. This country is in serious trouble.
Nah, “had me the phone and my pen. I have some more EOs to push through.”
“Yeah, but at some point theyll find out who their REAL father is.”
I’ll take “who is Web Hubble?” for 100, Alex.
someone said the daughter got there separately from her parents.
How easy it is when money (your own) isn’t an issue.
The older daughter resembles his side of the family - she has a long face with big jaw. IMO
