New Poll Shows Obama’s Approval Is At All-Time Low

Obama approval rating at an all time low


A new poll shows a record number of Americans do not trust the government to fix any of America’s problems. And another Economist/YouGov poll shows Obama's presidential approval rating has dropped to an all time low of 38%.

Back to the poll on trusting government, an all-time low percentage of Americans, 51 percent, do not have a great deal or fair amount of confidence in the government’s capabilities to get the job done it is supposed to do.

The survey was conducted from Sept. 5 to 8, while Congress was debating using military force in Syria which was before Pres. Obama addressed the nation on that conflict and Assad's supposed chemical weapons use and before Russia proposed to devise an international strategy and a deal was worked out on Syria.

Gallup conducted the same poll during Obama’s first term and those results showed that 57 to 66 percent of Americans supported the U.S. government’s role in the international community and had confidence in the president’s decision making. Apparently we no longer have that same confidence in Obama's second term capabilities.

Do you think the way he has dealt with the Syria crisis cost Obama approval points?
