WASHINGTON -- President Obama's overall approval rating has sunk to a new low -- and independent voters who propelled him to the White House have gotten downright sick of the job he's doing, according to a devastating poll released yesterday.
Obama's job-approval rating has tanked to a dismal 29 percent among independents, the Marist College survey found. His disapproval rating is nearly twice as high -- 57 percent.
Obama's overall approval among all registered voters hit a new low of 44 percent, the lowest of any poll that uses people to survey voters.
The near-total loss of independents could prove catastrophic for Democrats if the trend holds through Election Day this year.

Fellow socialist RATs would be wise not to stand on his rapidly shortening coattails.
I always find it hard to believe that over 40 percent still think 0’s doing a good job. Hopefully, even some of those idiots will wake up over the coming months, and his approval rating will drop to below 40, and then he’ll be ripe for the picking.
the ol’ barry magic sure worked wonders for marcia coakley, didn’t it ?
Can we still say “Bush’s fault”?
His numbers will not go much below 35% because that’s about the percentage of layabouts and ivory tower liberals inhabiting America.
True, and they may not go even below 40 percent, when you add the white guilt crowd to the mix.
"pants on da ground,pants on da ground"
"dey leavin in droves.....???..lalalala"
"I know it don't ryhmm,but I don't care"
WHat does that writing say?
...and the built-in racial component...
These are the people that collect government checks in some fashion.
He's Robin Hood, he's gonna make all rich folk PAY!, it was just luck they got the money. They can afford to "spread the wealth".
Damn communist, hack...spit........
when did rosie o’donnell grow a moustache ?
I'm in agreement, however I am finding them. They are the die hard useful idiots that have been following the dem party for generations.
I hear them at work, I hear them in restaurants. They follow the party line to perfection: “It's Bush's fault” or “The Republicans don't want to get along”. Another one that really turned my stomach: “President Obama is really good at finding money”.
The die hard dems are morons, idiots, mindless wastes of human flesh that serve no purpose but to leach off the rest of us.
A new scandal breaking in nj. Menendez lobbied fed to save nj bank who was a big contributor. I am commuting and on BB so I can’t post if someone wants to get it out there. Wsj reporting
good morning :)
I actually fault the voters more than Obama for this. What did people think he was going to do? Before the election, I tried patiently to explain who Obama really was to friends, relatives, and co-workers—without success. The signs were there in droves, but they chose to ignore them ‘cause Obama was a new brand and many were in love with the idea of electing a Black President. Got Communism?
