CBS: 59 Percent of Americans Disappointed in Obama Presidency


President Obama’s approval rating has dipped to 41 percent, and a full 59 percent polled said they were “disappointed” in his performance, CBS Evening News reported Wednesday.

CBS reports:

Disappointment with Barack Obama’s presidency has grown since the summer of 2012, and much of that rise has been among independents. Forty percent of independents say they are very disappointed today, up from 27 percent in August 2012.

President Obama’s overall approval rating is now 41 percent, a dip of five points from last month and similar to what it was in December. Fifty-one percent disapprove of the job he is doing, up four points from last month.

More specifically, Mr. Obama gets low marks for his handling of both foreign policy (39 percent approve) and the economy (38 percent approve).
