O’s Rating On Econ, H-Care New Low

From Gallup:

Obama Approval on Terrorism Up to 49%

Ratings on economy, healthcare sink to new lows

PRINCETON, NJ — Americans’ views of Barack Obama’s handling of terrorism remain closely divided, but mark a slight improvement from before the Christmas Day bombing attempt, with more Americans now approving than disapproving of how he is handling the issue

While Obama’s approval rating on terrorism has inched up, his approval ratings for handling the economy and healthcare have declined slightly since they were last measured, in late November. His current 40% approval rating on the economy and 37% rating on healthcare are the lowest of his presidency to date. The latter number is of some concern as the president and Congress work toward final legislation on healthcare reform, which could be ironed out later this month. The public is currently divided on this legislation, and the president’s leadership may be needed to bridge the gap between House and Senate Democrats while Obama tries to gain greater public backing for the reforms.

For some reason Gallup seemed to be determined to stress Obama’s improved terrorism ratings, rather than these other two indicators.

Of course it hardly matters, since the Obama White House doesn’t consider the Gallup Poll to be anything more significant than a six year old doodling with a crayon.
