Though there have been examples of statistical noise over one or two days, for most of the year, Gallup has consistently recorded Obama’s job approval rating at or above fifty-percent. Since Friday, though, the three-day average dipped to a startling 46%.
02/27-03/1 : 47 approve — 45 disapprove
02/28-03/2: 46 approve — 46 disapprove
03/1-3/3: 46 approve — 46 disapprove
This could again be statistical noise or related directly to the sequester negotiations. As much as Democrats and the media want to blame the GOP, people still see Obama as in charge. Moreover, thanks to conservative media and a very few brave mainstream media journalists willing to tell the truth, the president’s credibility has taken a real hit.
