Another Poll, Another New Low for Obama

Another day, another poll, and another new low for President Obama. This time the poll comes to us courtesy of Quinnipiac University, and it shows:

American voters disapprove 55-41 percent of the job President Barack Obama is doing, an all-time low.

In addition, voters disapprove 48-34 percent of the way Obama is handling the Israeli-Palestinian dispute. The president should be a strong supporter of Israel, voters say by a 63-20 percent, but they split 39-40 percent on whether Obama is a strong supporter.

“The trend isn’t good for President Barack Obama. His disapproval has gone up 9 points since the summer, from 46 percent in July to 52 percent in September to 55 percent today,” said Peter A. Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute. “Especially troubling for the president is that voters say 49-39 percent that Republican presidential contender Mitt Romney would do a better job on the economy… The president is stuck at a politically unhealthy level for someone who wants to be re- elected. His standing with the American people is obviously closely related to their views of the economy.”

David Axelrod is correct; the president does face a “titanic struggle” in winning re-election. This is unquestionably the GOP’s race to lose.
