Obama Approval Rating Bounces Back in Gallup Poll — But It’s Still Bad
A day after recording his worst-ever disapproval rating in the Gallup daily tracking poll, President Barack Obama’s approval rating improved to merely terrible.
As noted Saturday, Gallup’s poll is notoriously noisy. (Critics repeatedly note that it predicted a President Mitt Romney).
Obama’s Sunday result in the three-day tracker bounced to 42 approval, 54 disapproval from 39 percent approval, 57 disapproval . That’s very close to where he stood in the RealClearPolitics average , and is still sufficiently in the dumps for Democrats to want to avoid making appearances with him.
