Obama's Approval Rating Continues To Go Down

Rasmussen was first to notice Obama's approval ratings slipping below the 50 percent point and now Quinnipiac University National Poll confirms.

President Barack Obama's job approval rating is 48 - 42 percent, the first time he has slipped below the 50 percent threshold nationally, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Support for the war in Afghanistan and approval of President Obama's handling of the war also is down in the last month, and Republican support for the war is more than twice as strong as Democratic support.

Here is the poll and the numbers to watch are the figures for Independents as we previously showed Obama and the Democrats bleeding their support.
