Obama in Hot Water

The Democratic Public Policy Polling outfit has more bad news for Obama:

Barack Obama’s hit a record low in PPP’s monthly national polling on his approval numbers. 45% of voters approve of the job he’s doing while 52% disapprove. This is the first time he’s topped the 50% disapproval mark in our surveys. …

So much for the notion that Obama’s personal popularity could be harnessed to sell his agenda. And to add insult to injury, the polls tell us that an endorsement by Bill Clinton is more influential with voters than a nod from Obama. But the disappointment runs both ways there. I’m sure Hillary must be asking herself: How did I lose to this guy?
