In the 2+ years that I've been running my quarterly AB.com Obama Approval Rating™ poll, this is officially the lowest rating evar.
I can't say this wasn't expected. of course it was. Obama is, after all, a politician, not your best friend. He, like every President, was bound to disappoint eventually, and I think most of AverageNation™ has grown weary of his "typical politician" behavior. When the economy isn't humming along, and you're in 3 wars, and you're facing a debt crisis, there isn't much to cheer about, even for the most fervent ObamaBot.
Personally, I still think he's got a good chance at winning in 2012, just because the competition is so lackluster. But that doesn't make him a great President by any stretch, it just means he sucks less than the other guy (or gal). Sorta like Duke beating Butler last year. Or UConn beating Butler this year. Or whoever beats Butler next year.
Question: What does President Obama need to do to win your vote (again) in 2012?!? Which GOP candidate poses the biggest threat?
