The latest Gallup Poll tracking numbers are out and they continue to show bad news for President Obama and the Democrat Party. His overall approval rating has hit a new low, which is something we seem to be saying pretty often now. President Obama’s approval rating has dropped to 39%.
In fact, Obama’s approval rating has actually fallen below President Bush’s at the same time in their Presidency! Have you heard about that in the media? I don’t think you will, but it won’t change the facts…
Those approval rating numbers are going to continue to worry red-state Democrats as they move into a midterm election year. If President Obama’s numbers continue to suffer, he will be a drag on Democrats across the country, especially in conservative states and districts.
In past years he’s been a boon for Democrats campaigning for office, but if he is unpopular then that will depress the numbers of Democrats motivated to go out and vote, while similarly energizing that anti-Obama vote to make sure they make it to the polls.
All in all, as Obama’s numbers continue to slide so will the hopes of many Democrat candidates across the nation.
