The most recent Presidential citizens approval survey, has President Barack Obama , at a negative -60 approval rating by all American voters. I saw this information on CNN news a couple of days ago. They went on to say that this is the lowest approval rating that President Obama has had since he has been president. The American economy, and his performance during the Gulf oil spill were some of the reasons given for the negative rating. They also said this is the first time that Barack Obama, had a majority of people in America with a negative view of his performance as President of the United States.
