    Obamas Approval Rating with White Americans Falling Down Significantly to 39%

    PRINCETON, NJ Since the start of his presidency, U.S. President Barack Obamas approval rating has declined more among non-Hispanic whites than among nonwhites, and now, fewer than 4 in 10 whites approve of the job Obama is doing as president.



    Obama last week fell below 50% approval in Gallup Daily tracking for the first time in his presidency, both in daily three-day rolling averages and in Gallup Daily tracking results aggregated weekly.

    The only subgroup showing a greater change than whites is Republicans, down 24 points since Obamas first full week in office.

    In his first full week in office (Jan. 26-Feb. 1), an average of 66% of Americans approved of the job Obama was doing, including 61% of non-Hispanic whites and 80% of nonwhites. In the most recent week, spanning Nov. 16-22 interviewing, his approval rating averaged 49% overall, 39% among whites, and 73% among nonwhites. Thus, since the beginning of his presidency, his support has dropped 22 points among whites, compared with a 7-point loss among nonwhites.

    Interesting thing about the disapproval for Obama vs. disapproval for Bush: With Obama, some White people (from my own personal observations) tend to stress that their disapproval of Obama is nothing personal, a lot of them thing he's a nice person. With Bush, the disapproval was venomous. Actually Bush has been laying low since leaving the White House, he is still pretty unpopular among Conservatives. Most Americans realize that the country is in a depression, even if the government won't admit it. So called recent signs of improvement have not improved the employment rate. Obama is obviously not up to the job of handling the crisis.

    Obama hasn't stopped rising unemployment, which is at 10% but would be 21% if the Labor Department was using the same methods of collecting data that were used as recently as the Carter administration. The federal deficit is going to be over $1 trillion a year for the foreseeable future. And Obamacare is being rammed through Congress & it will be Whites who will bear the cost, to the benefit of non-Whites. The only thing Obama has going for him is the only alternative will be a Republican and they are still unpopular.
