Gallup: New lows for Obama

William Tate
Barack Obama's job approval remains mired below 50% in Gallup's latest daily tracking poll. Worse for the Big O, for the first time as many people surveyed dis-approve of the job Obama's doing as approve it; approval and disapproval both stood at 47%. Worse still, these numbers come after a major PR effort by Obama following his State of the Union, with Obama's disapproval spiking 2% in the last 24 hours.. And these numbers come from Gallup. Polling changes over time, of course. But people apparently aren't buying what Obama's selling.
