Americans have finally awoken to the fact that our country is adrift and leaderless. CNN polls show:
President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped 8 percentage points over the past month to 45%, the president’s lowest rating in more than 18 months, according to a CNN/ORC International survey released on Monday.
And Obama’s disapproval rating soared 9 points to 54% since mid-May.
Even more surprising: The overall decline in his approval rating was partially fueled by a plunge in support from younger Americans, a huge base of Obama’s support.
