What is perhaps more instructive of the public mood is that Obama has just hit a new overall deficit of general approval of his on the job performance.
Overall, 41% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. That’s the lowest level of approval yet recorded for this president. Fifty-eight percent (58%) now disapprove. [That's a -17% overall approval rating]
Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats approve of the president’s performance. Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans disapprove along with 72% of unaffiliated voters.
