Obama Approval Rating
March 12, 2012 by staff
Obama Approval Rating, U.S. President Barack Obama’s job approval rating, weighed down by soaring gas prices, has plunged below 50 percent, giving his political opponents what appears to be an opening in the November election, a new opinion poll showed.
The survey by ABC News and The Washington Post indicated that only 46 percent of Americans now approved of the way Obama is handling his job and 50 percent disapproved.
The situation was a reversal from early February when 50 percent approved of the president’s performance and 46 percent disapproved.
According to the survey, the drop was attributed to soaring gas prices threatening to crimp America’s slow recovery from a recession.
The American Automobile Association (AAA) predicts gasoline prices across the United States could average US$4.25 a gallon by May, up from over US$3.60 today.
Between 1998 and 2004, prices ranged from US$1 to US$2.
