New poll shows that only 24% of the nation's voters strongly approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president

Forty-four percent (44%) of voters strongly disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20. Forty-eight percent (48%) of Democrats strongly approve while 75% of Republicans strongly disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 12% strongly approve and 52% strongly disapprove. Only 30% of voters gave President Obama good or excellent marks for handling the oil spill. Forty-five percent (45%) said he was doing a poor job. Most voters (57%) still favor offshore oil drilling. On another topic, most Americans (53%) continue to believe the bailout of General Motors and Chrysler was a bad idea. Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance and 57% now disapprove. Those are the lowest ratings yet recorded for this president.
