Obama Approval Hits New Low

A new Quinnipiac poll finds President Obama's approval-disapproval level has shrunk to an all-time low of 42% to 52%.

Said pollster Peter Brown: "President Obama has hit a low 42% approval in the past, but this is his highest disapproval rating. Ominous for him is that the share of voters who think he has strong leadership qualities has dropped from 64% to 33% in January to 50% to 48% now. Voters say 54% to 42% that he cares about their problems, but that is not impressive since it is a measure on which Democratic presidents historically rate well."

"The best news for the president is that voters still blame former president George W. Bush rather than Obama for the economy by 53% to 32%. One can only imagine what Obama's approval rating might look like if that ever changes."
