President Barack Obama’s job approval is sinking like a stone, dropping to negative territory with just 38 percent of American voters voicing their approval compared with 58 percent who disapprove, a Quinnipiac University poll
released Tuesday showed.
The Nov. 12 Quinnipiac poll showed the president with 39 percent approval and a 54 percent disapproval among voters.
"A rousing chorus of Bah! Humbug! for President Barack Obama as American voters head into the holidays with little charitable to say about the president,” said Tim Malloy, assistant director of the Quinnipiac University Polling Institute.
The survey also found a plurality of registered voters want the GOP to control both chambers.
Forty-one percent of American voters said they'd vote for a Republican over a Democrat for the House of Representatives, the first time this year the Democrats come up on the short end, the pollsters found.
Forty-seven percent of voters said they'd like to see Republicans gain control of the Senate and the House, the poll found.
"President Obama could be pretty lonely during his last two years in office if voters decide they want Republican majorities in the House and Senate," Malloy said.
Even young Americans, usually Obama's strongest supporters, are in a grim mood, with 49 percent disapproving of his job performance and only 41 percent approving, the poll shows.
Obama polls a 50 percent approval rating among Hispanic voters, with 43 percent disapproving, the survey found.
Voters still are unhappy with the lawmakers in Washington, with 74 percent disapproving of the way Republicans in Congress are doing their jobs, while 67 percent are disapproving of Democrats in Congress.
Also, 52 percent of voters said they are unhappy with the president's honesty and trustworthiness, while 51 percent say he's not a strong leader, the poll found.
The poll has a margin of error of plus or minus 1.9 percentage points.
