He is down in every category, but has to be especially concerned about the hemorrhaging of Independents.
Only 39% approve of closing Gitmo
Only 35% approve of Obama’s GM bailout/takeover
Only 20% are extremely confident that Obama has the right set of goals and policies to improve the economy
But this is the big one – Obama’s support among Independents has taken a nosedive. They favored Obama by 60% to 31% percent back in April. Now it’s almost split at 46% to 44%.
And this tidbit is especially satisfying – Dick Cheney’s approval rating has increased by 8 points since April and he is now more popular than Nancy Pelosi.
