Obama’s Approval Rating
March 12, 2012 by staff
Obama’s Approval Rating, If you’re wondering why President Obama is putting such an emphasis on the energy issue, look no further than today’s Washington Post/ABC News poll. Obama’s approval rating is down to 46% in the survey, in large part because of one issue: rising gas prices.
“Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the situation at the pump, where rising prices have already hit hard,” the Post reports. “Just 26% approve of his work on the issue, his lowest rating in the poll.”
That explains a recent spate of Obama speeches on the subject of energy, stressing an “all-of-the-above” strategy that includes development of alternative sources beyond oil.
It also explains the release of a report today touting the president’s record on new sources of energy.
“Despite the gains we’ve made, today’s high gas prices are a painful reminder that there’s much more work to do free ourselves from our dependence on foreign oil and take control of our energy future,” Obama said in a statement. “And that’s exactly what our administration is committed to doing in the months ahead.”
Obama plans to discuss his “blueprint for a secure energy future” in interviews with television anchors from Los Angeles, Denver, Austin, Des Moines, Orlando, Cincinnati, Las Vegas and Pittsburgh.
