Obama's approval rating drops below 50 pc

Showing a drop of seven points from a survey last month, the CNN/Opinion Research Corp national survey said only 48 per cent of the respondents approved the job of Obama as the US President; while 50 per cent disapproved it.

“The poll indicates that the biggest drop in approval comes from noncollege-educated white voters” ,said Keating Holland, CNN’s polling director.
There is  an indication among many that Obama’s growing unpopularity may be more related to unemployment and the poor economy than to factors such as his strategy for Afghanistan.

The poll was conducted on  Wednesday and Thursday after Obama announced his Afghan policy on Tuesday.
Six in 10 have  favoured Obama’s move to send 30,000 more troops to that country, the CNN said.

Two-thirds also supported his plan to start removing US forces from Afghanistan in 2011, although the poll indicates most Americans think that announcing such a date in advance is a bad idea, and they are sceptical about  whether conditions then will allow the United States to meet that goal, it said.
