A new poll gives President Obama an overall approval rating of 44 percent, with 48 percent of respondents disapproving of his performance.
In late May, the Quinnipiac University national poll gave Obama similar ratings — 45 percent approval, 49 percent disapproval.
“President Barack Obama is in a slump, under water for the last two surveys,” said Peter Brown, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
Obama does get a positive rating — 52 percent approval to 43 percent disapproval — for his handling of terrorism, and a 46 percent-45 percent split for his handling of Afghanistan, Quinnipiac reported.
