Obama’s popularity is plummeting, with more U.S. voters disapproving of his job than approve it, according to a recent poll
More than half of U.S. voters believe that Obama is performing badly in his role as the country's leader and nearly all voters – 94% – say the economy is in bad shape. The increase in disapproval is due at least in part to Democrats, according to the Fox News Poll. His average disapproval among his own party is 11% – but it has now rocketed to 19%. The poll also found that 66% of voters see economic conditions as poor – the highest percentage for the rating in the poll.
