But the brand new Zogby poll released just hours ago, has even worse news for Obama and the Democrats; A shockingly low 42% approval compared to 48% disapprovals.
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.Though there are no cross-tabs on Democrat ideology, it appears that moderate-to-conservative Dems may be finally abandoning Obama.
And one interesting side note: Fully 21% of all African-American voters now dissaprove of Obama's performance, 74% approve, though that's down from 81% last month.
Note - Rasmussen is generally regarded as a "Republican-leaning" polling firm, while Zogby is said to lean Democrat.
