    For the first time since being elected, Gallup is reporting Obama's approval as having fallen to 58% in multi-day tracking. Of particular note is the considerable decline in Independent support for Obama - down from an average of 60% to 53%.

    It would appear the month's long disconnect between Obama's personal approval ratings, and dissaproval of his policies, is starting to close.

    Earlier this week, long-time Democrat strategist/analyst Lawrence O'Donnel stated this is the first week the Democrats have felt "panic" since Obama's election.

    Yep, and Iran/NK not going to help. Then that CBO report on health care and the funny deal about the man that can get trillions out of Congress, somehow unable to get the money to close Gitmo. Yep foreign and domestic news are not bending his way.

    When Obama's approval numbers drop below 50% then Democrats will start panicking. 58% is still pretty favorable numbers.....

    Yeah, a 58% approval rating is still high among pollsters. Wait until everybody's taxes skyrocket next year.

    Except Bushes were not 25 to 30 percent for YEARS. Obama could prove to be the one dog pony show he is sooner then most democrats wanted.

    I agree, but to post a 58% approval rating is really ummm...kind of embarrassing. Don't you think?
