President Obama’s Poll Ratings Underwater

The latest Marist Poll has bad news for the president.  Reports the New York Daily News:

President Obama‘s job approval rating has taken another dive, putting him underwater for the first time in the latest Marist poll.

Just 44% of the country approve of the work Obama is doing, while 47% don’t like what they see.

The tough reviews come as Americans still find the commander in chief likable, with 50% rating him favorably, and 44% viewing him negatively.

And they still blame former President George W. Bush for the dismal economy.

Only 29% of voters say the poor economy is Obama’s fault; 62% agree that Bush left the problem on Obama’s desk.

“With this part of voters’ mind-set, it’s no wonder the White House would like to make 2010 a choice between President Obama and past GOP policies,” said Lee Miringoff, director of The Marist Institute for Public Opinion.

Still, people think Obama’s policies are not change they can believe in.

Forty-seven percent of voters say Obama has not lived up to their expectations, with just 42% saying he has.

A narrow plurality – 38% – think Obama’s change has been bad, and 37% think it’s been good.
