    Gallup: Obama Begins 2nd Year w/Highest Disapproval Rating in Modern Era


    According to Gallup's first full data set for 2010, Barack Obama starts his second year in office with the highest disapproval rating of any President since Eisenhower. Obama begins 2010 with 44% of the public disapproving of the job he's doing as president. That's four points higher than the next closest president (Reagan), six points higher than Bill Clinton, and 17 points higher than Jimmy Carter.

    "Only Ronald Reagan -- who, like Obama, took office during challenging economic times -- began his second year in office with a lower approval score."

    Don't forget that Eisenhower and Reagan recovered.

    I don't believe that Obama can recover but there is the possibility.

    According to Rassmussen, he is gaining back very quickly.

    Eisenhower, Reagan, Clinton...all won second terms by wide margins

    A very significant time to poll the president

    Ah, there lies the question.

    Reagan proved a far more astute leader than Obama (to this point)

    That of course due greatly to Reagan having considerable more executive experience - Obama had none. Reagan also was far less divisive when it came to the job of negotiating legislation than Obama has been to this point - though Reagan had to accomodate the Democrats as they controlled the House and were able to filibuster the Senate. Obama does not have those hurdles, and still has fumbled the legislative more often than not at the great expense of his own party.

    So agreed - unless Obama matures much faster than he has to this point, he is going to continue to appear weak and uncertain as the president, and the polling will reflect that...

    Gotta agree. He needs to get it together for year two. He needs to dump his crappy agenda and start working on jobs and the economy. These two items are much more important to folks than his green and climate change crap. He's a smart man I'm sure he can figure it out.
