A pair of new polls find that with less than four months until the midterm elections, Americans' confidence in President Obama's handling of the economy continues to crater.
A new Washington Post/ABC News poll finds that just 43 percent approve of Obama's handling of the economy, with 54 percent disapproving. The poll also shows waning confidence in Obama overall, and Republicans creeping ahead in the generic Congressional ballot.
These results are further confirmed by a CBS News poll, with 40 percent saying they had confidence in Obama, and 54 percent saying they did not.
This puts Democrats in a tough spot, because there are now only three employment reports left between now and the midterm elections, so there really aren't that many opportunities for new data to emerge that show improvement in the labor market.
