mean that Obama's poll numbers could rebound very quickly, so I wouldn't put a lot of weight on them. The strangest part of the poll is that while 75 percent of Democrats approve of Obama's job, 74 percent of blacks do. This makes me believe even more strongly that one shouldn't read too much into this decline.
President Barack Obama's job approval rating is down to 42%, with a decline in approval from Democrats the leading factor.
The latest Zogby Interactive poll of 4,518 likely voters conducted from August 28-31 found 48% disapprove and 42% approve of the job Obama is doing. The poll found 75% of Democrats approve of Obama's performance, a drop of 13 points among Democrats from an interactive poll done July 21-24 of this year. That same poll found 48% of all likely voters approving of Obama's job performance, and 49% disapproving.
In the most recent poll, 8% of Republicans and 37% of Independents approve of Obama's job performance. Both are down slightly from six weeks ago; two points among Republicans and three among Independents. . . . .
