(The Hill) — Disapproval of President Obama’s handling of the economy and unemployment is at an all-time high heading into his highly-anticipated speech on his jobs plan next week.
A CNN/ORC poll released Thursday found deep dissatisfaction with the president’s management of the economy; 65 percent of Americans said they disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy, the highest level of disapproval the president has faced on that question in this poll.
Just 34 percent of Americans approve of the way Obama is managing the economy, matching the low point in CNN/ORC’s numbers since Obama took office.
As for the number one issue in the election, jobs, the president also faces the dimmest numbers of his tenure. Sixty-two percent of Americans said they disapprove of Obama’s work on unemployment, while 37 percent said they approve.
