A USA Today/Gallup Poll out Tuesday morning delivers some bad news for Barack Obama.

Here are the key finding of the national poll:

  • By 49%-47%, those surveyed disapprove of how he is handling the economy, a turnaround from his 55%-42% approval in May. The steepest drop came from conservative and moderate Democrats.

  • By 50%-44%, they disapprove of how he is handling healthcare policy.

  • A 59% majority say his proposals call for too much government spending, and 52% say they call for too much expansion of government power.

  • Expectations of the economy's turnaround are souring a bit. In February, the average prediction for a recovery was 4.1 years; now it's 5.5 years.

    The USA Today/Gallup Poll is sure to undermine the President's position as he pushes for his ambitious universal healthcare plan.

    "His ratings have certainly come back down to Earth in a very short time period," Republican pollster Whit Ayres told USA Today.
