[efoods]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.
