Is Obama Less Popular Than on Election Day?

Tom Jensen looks at President Obama's falling approval numbers and concludes "he's popular with those who voted for him and not with those who didn't."

That level of approval won him 365 electoral votes.

"Some people who didn't vote for Obama may have expressed approval for him in the early days of his term because they felt like they needed to give a new President a chance, but the reality is that Obama is setting out to do what he said he was going to do when he got elected, so if you didn't like what you heard last fall you inevitably were going to end up not liking what you heard when he started governing. The higher levels of approval he initially showed, particularly from Republicans, were inevitable going to fall."
