Psst! Obama’s Poll Numbers Have Been Underwater for Weeks Now.

Shhh! I think we’re not supposed to tell anyone this, since most of the mainstream media seems to be treating it like top-secret classified information, kept far away from the eyes of the public . . .

. . . but Obama’s job-approval numbers have been underwater in the Gallup tracking poll in every survey but one since mid-June.

Date % Approve  % Disapprove
Jun 18-20 45 48
Jun 19-21 43 49
Jun 20-22 43 50
Jun 21-23 45 47
Jun 22-24 45 48
Jun 23-25 44 49
Jun 24-26 43 49
Jun 25-27 44 48
Jun 26-28 45 46
Jun 27-29 44 48
Jun 29-Jul 1 45 46
Jun 30-Jul 2 45 47
Jul 1-3 47 46
Jul 2-5 45 47

Whatever you do, don’t tell anyone this! There is a fragile conventional wisdom that must be protected at all costs!

UPDATE: Here is the mundane way Gallup releases its latest numbers on this: “President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 46% in June, down from 50% in May but similar to his ratings from February through April.”
