President Barack Obama’s April 4 announcement that he will run for re-election hasn’t done much for his approval ratings. They have dropped in every poll held since then amid continuing concern about the budget, employment and gas prices, The Hill reports. Growing turmoil in the Mideast and Africa also has hurt his standing.

On April 15, a Gallup survey tabbed the president's approval rating at 41 percent, a tie for the lowest reading of his administration and down from 49 percent when he announced his campaign.

A new post from The Washington Post/ABC News shows that 58 percent of Americans disapprove of Obama’s approach to curbing the government’s exploding debt burden. To be sure, House Republicans don’t score well on this front, either, with 64 percent disapproval of their approach.
