Fox News Poll: Obama Hits 'New Low' with Independents
A Fox News poll released yesterday shows President Obama falling to a 25 percent approval rating among independents.
That’s a 6 percent drop from last month, and a 20 percent drop from Fox News’s 2012 election exit polling (Romney led Obama among independents, pulling 50 percent to Obama’s 45). Overall, Obama has dropped 27 percent in approval among independents since 2008. Fox describes the ratings as “a new low.”
Overall, President Obama’s approval rating is one point underwater with 46 percent approval and 47 percent disapproval. This is actually better for him than last month; in June Obama had a 51 percent disapproval and a 43 percent approval rating.
