Support down for Obama's handling of economy: poll

Funny how it has taken all the other polls so long to find what Rasmussen has been reporting for months.
WASHINGTON — A growing number of Americans have lost confidence in President Barack Obama's handling of the economy, despite the apparent beginnings of a recovery, according to a poll out Wednesday.

A Quinnipiac University survey found that 54 percent of respondents disapproved of Obama's handling of the economy, compared to 41 percent who approved.

The finding was Obama's "worst score ever on this issue," the pollsters said in a statement. They said it also showed erosion of support even from just a month ago, when public opinion on his handling of the economy earned a 52-43 percent approval rating.

For his overall job performance, respondents gave Obama a 46 percent approval -- also his lowest ever -- while 44 percent of those polled disapproved of the president's performance, the poll showed.
