← return to Inside Politics

The polls just keep getting worse for President Obama, who sank to new lows in two surveys released Thursday.

Mr. Obama’s disapproval rating hit 52 percent in a Quinnipiac University poll, up 5 percentage points from July. It was his highest disapproval rating ever in the survey.

And nearly two-thirds — 65 percent — of respondents to a CNN/ORD poll said they disapproved of the president’s handling of the economy. Sixty-six percent of respondents said they disapproved of Mr. Obama’s handling of the federal deficit, and 62 percent disapproved of his handling of unemployment.

All three categories were all-time lows for Mr. Obama in the CNN poll.

Seventy-six percent of respondents in the Quinnipiac poll said the economy is in a recession again.
