Obama job approval plummets
The Boston Globe

President Obama’s job approval rating has dropped below the symbolic 50 percent in another poll.

The CNN/Opinion Research Corp. survey released this afternoon put his approval among Americans at 48 percent, with 50 percent disapproving. That’s a huge shift just from mid-November, when his approval rating was at 55 percent in the same poll.

His high came in February just after his inauguration, at 76 percent.

Of those respondents now disapproving of Obama’s handling of the presidency, 40 percent said he was too liberal while 8 percent he was not liberal enough.
