President Barack Obama has not have a good several weeks. The economy is still struggling, with fears that the Greek credit situation can deflate world markets. Politically, Senate Democrats blocked his jobs bill and the Solyndra and Fast and Furious scandals continue to grow.
Obama has resorted to class warfare to try and bulk up his sagging poll numbers. This does not seem to be working. In fact, it very much may be handicapping his numbers.
His numbers in the Gallup daily tracking has fallen as of late. Since the October 1-3 period, it has fallen four percentage points, tying him with his previous low.
As it stands now, the Obama approval rating breaks down like this:
The disapprove number is slightly lower than the 55% registered in late August. However, it's apparent that Obama's speeches about punishing the successful and Biden's statements of blame on the Obama Administration are not helping.
Meanwhile, Rasmussen's numbers paint a similar picture:
Four more percent approve but five more disapprove. This is becoming a rocky road for re-election. Perhaps the Administration will order up more class resentment, stat.
