Via The Hill:
President Obama’s approval rating has fallen to a record low in California, with fewer than half of the voters in the Democratic stronghold approving of the way he has handled his job, for the first time since 2011.
Just 45 percent of California voters say they approve of the way the president is handling his job — down 5 percentage points from June, according to a Field Poll released Tuesday. Some 43 percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the president’s job performance. Those numbers are actually better than the president’s national rating, with a Gallup poll taken late last month showing 42 percent approval for the president and 51 percent disapproval.
But the California poll might be an ominous sign. The president has been able to keep his approval ratings in the low 40s, largely thanks to a loyal Democratic base, which continues to support him at a steady clip.
