Business owners resoundingly oppose President Barack Obama’s policies, with nearly 60 percent disapproving of his job performance, according to a Gallup Poll released Thursday.
Fifty-nine percent of business owners said they disapprove of Obama’s job performance, compared with 35 percent who said they approve.
Their approval of the president has fallen from 41 percent in the first quarter to 35 percent in the second quarter of 2012, a drop of 6 points.
This puts business owners with the second-lowest approval in terms of occupational groups measured by Gallup.
The group with the lowest approval was farming, fishing or forestry workers, who disapproved of the president, 57 percent to 34 percent.
