The presidential approval rating ceiling doesn’t have to be raised, but the floor might need to be lowered soon.

Los Angeles Times:

As the economy sags, unemployment climbs and debt negotiators dawdle, President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to a new low.

A new Gallup Poll, just released, finds the Democrat’s job approval rating has dropped to 40% in recent days, one point below his previous low from April and a full 10 points below the job approval he enjoyed as recently as June 7.

Gallup notes his job approval has hovered in the mid-40s for most of the last two months.

“However,” the new survey says, “it has stumbled in the past few days, coinciding with intensification of the debt ceiling/budget battle in Washington.”

According to Gallup, Obama’s approval among independents has dropped from 41% to 34%, and his approval among Democrats was 79% and now stands at 72%. The “call or Tweet your member of Congress” leadership style during threat of “economic Armageddon” doesn’t seem to be doing much for the ol’ approval rating either.

Additionally, the president has major problems in battleground states, and trails a generic Republican by six points. The trick now is for the GOP to figure out how to get this generic Republican on the ballot.
