F&M Poll: Pres. Obama’s Approval Slips to 45%

ObamaPresident Barack Obama has come back to Earth a bit.

The latest Franklin & Marshall poll has Obama’s approval rating at 45%. That’s a decline of seven points, though it should be noted that last month’s was one of his best performances ever.

Of that 45% who approve, 19% say he is doing an excellent job and 26% call it a good job. On the other hand, 38% believe he’s doing a poor job and 16% only a fair job.

If you don’t include July’s results, these were the President’s best numbers since October 2012.

The 44th President is also still far ahead of his predecessor as you can see in the chart below:

    Rs better hurry up and confirm Garland before HIllary puts someone up who is actually a real Liberal.

  5. Who the fukkk cares about the haters!?!

    Not POTUS. I can tell you that.

    And Furtre POTUS -Hillary Clinton – doesn’t care either.

  6. President Obama has been a potent force for the growth of the careers of the people who absolutely hate him and Hillary will give them four more years.

  7. If it quacks like a jacksss- looks like a jackass – and walks like a jackass– it must be Obama. More corrupt than Nixon- more incompetent than Carter.
    He has been one of our Nation’s most divisive and poorest leaders. Still they love him in Tehran- at least he helped them.
    Good riddance on 1/20
