Via Christian Science Monitor:
President Obama’s economic approval numbers have slipped this summer, even as he has crisscrossed the nation making the case that the nation’s financial picture has improved.
A new Gallup survey rates Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy at 35 percent, down seven points since June. His marks on taxes and the federal budget deficit have each dropped five points over the same period, to 36 percent and 26 percent respectively.
The president’s overall approval rating, meanwhile, has settled to 44 percent – from 47 percent two months ago.
