Obama drops to 50% in the Gallup Poll
going down, down, down
Just in case it doesn't get they type of news coverage such things usually get (especially when there's a Republican in the White House), I give you the latest Gallup poll:
It gets even better though. Turns out that, although he's not the first President to hit this mark, he's one of the few who's had his popularity fall this quickly.
Slipping below 50% before November of the first year in office would represent “the third-fastest drop” since World War II, Gallup reports. Republican Gerald Ford slipped below 50% in his third month as president, Democrat Bill Clinton during his fourth month.
It took Republican President Eisenhower five years to fall below 50% in the public’s eye, Gallup notes. It took both Republican George Bushes about three years. It took Democrat Lyndon Johnson and Republican Richard Nixon more than two years.
You gotta' love it.
