The poll also found that 39 percent of Americans say the economy is fairly bad, and another 47 percent say the economy is very bad – the highest percentage since April 2009. Meanwhile, 13 percent say the economy is fairly good and just one percent say it is very good.
In addition, 72 percent of Americans think the country is on the wrong track – the highest percentage so far since the president took office. Just 23 percent think the country is currently in the right direction. . . .
In addition, for the first time, more Americans have an unfavorable opinion of the president than a favorable one – 39 percent have a favorable opinion, while 42 percent view him unfavorably. Eighteen percent are undecided.These are records for this poll – Rasmussen, for example, has previously scored lower, but his current approval index of -19 is still in the ballpark.
The election is still over a year away, but the trend is still solid against Obama.
