◼ More than 60 percent of those surveyed say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the economy and, what has become issue No. 1, the stagnant jobs situation.
◼ Pollsters Agree: Obama’s in Bad Shape
Three new polls are out today, but for President Obama they all say pretty much the same thing: he’s hit a low in his presidency during the same week that he’s set to address the nation’s jobs problem in a speech to a joint session of Congress.
All three polls showed a sharp drop in his job approval ratings. Washington Post-ABC News has Obama at 43 percent, Politico at 45 percent and the Wall Street Journal-NBC at 44 percent.
