Poll: Obama at 41%

Via Zogby:  Obama Job Approval at 41% Hits New Low for 2011

President Barack Obama’s job approval among likely voters dropped to 41% this week, his lowest so far this year and the lowest recorded in an IBOPE Zogby interactive poll since Nov. 22, 2010, when he received 39%.

The percentage of voters who believe Obama deserves re-election fell one percentage point from April 15 to 37%. Approval of Congress fell by the same amount, and is now 21%

And yes, I know some of you objected to Zogby the last time I posted using their numbers.  One suspects that at least some of you will nevertheless like these numbers.

    I like it even if it is Zogby. Maybe the great American unwashed are catching on to the disaster that our manchild president is.

    Gas up…President down…a shocking development that I am sure portends the demise of Entirety of the Progressive project and the beginning of Republican rule for eons.

    Our “manchild” president. Go ahead and call him boy — you know you’re dying to.

  4. Oh jeez you guyz, says:

    The next election is the GOP’s to lose. Sadly (??) unless they can find someone named “A. Generic Republican,” they can still manage losing quite comfortably.

    Progressives out there: This is what we call in the education business “a teachable moment.” Will you learn from it? I have my doubts.

    And meanwhile, the decidedly GOP-biased Rasmussen poll has Obama at 46%. what does it all mean?
