Independents’ Disapproval of Obama Intensifies

A new Angus Reid Public Opinion poll finds Obama’s approval rating unchanged at 40 percent, and adds, “among Independents, the level of strong disapproval for the American president outranks the level of strong approval by a 6-to-1 margin (42 percent to 7 percent).”

This is an online survey, but the pollster notes that the sample is weighted to be a “representative national sample of 1,031 American adults.”
