    12/8: Obama’s Hope to Unite Falls Short

    December 8, 2009 by Marist Poll

    Registered voters nationally are divided about President Barack Obama’s job approval rating. 46% approve of his job performance while 44% disapprove. One in ten voters is unsure.

    This is the first time the president has lost majority support on this question since taking office. When Marist last asked this question in October, 53% of voters gave the president high marks.

    Partisanship is alive and well here, but Mr. Obama has slipped slightly among voters in both parties. 77% of Democrats approve of the president’s job performance compared with 12% of Republicans. Two months ago, 84% of Democrats and 21% of Republicans gave him a thumbs-up. Independents remain divided, 41% approve while 44% disapprove.

    And here is some very interesting specific information from this latest poll.

    We see that Obama's approval rests largely on low income, less educated, younger voters. It appears the more successful, educated, and experienced one is, the less support given to Obama. (It would also indicate that those who fall under the category of being less successful and educated are more often "Democrats".

    It is also interesting to note that women who define themselves as politically Independent, really dislike Obama - 46% dissaprove vs 36% approve.
