Obama's approval drops to 41 percent, lowest in two years, poll finds
By Rebecca Shabad - 10/04/13 04:36 PM ET

President Obama’s approval rating has dropped to one of the lowest levels in two years.

Since the government shutdown Tuesday, Obama’s approval rating has slipped 3 percentage points to 41 percent, while his disapproval went up to 52 percent, according to Gallup’s daily numbers.

Reuters also polled a 41 percent approval rating in the same time period. Rasmussen Reports said he had 46 percent approval, and Fox News recorded it at 45 percent.

Gallup hasn't recorded that low an approval rating for Obama since 2011. The pollster's surveys in September showed 44 percent approved of the president’s job. 

The federal government shut down for the first time since 1996 on Tuesday after Congress failed to agree to a funding measure.

Polls have shown more people blame Republicans for the shutdown than Obama, but Gallup's numbers suggest the negative news is also hurting the president.

I am betting Obama's internal polls show it a lot worse....

Given their reaction in the last 24 hours, it must not be good.  You don't go to DEFCON 1 and start launching nukes when you're winning.

I agree that all the numbers coming from the WH are pure BS. The deficit is just fine, unemployment is at 7% and on and on. Everything they say is BS.
 
However, I disagree with the idea that they not be in DEFCON 1 launching nukes. That is the only DEFCON level they have, and they launch nukes no matter what. That is just how they are. Always on the offense with the intent to destroy any opposition to their version of 'utopia'.

That's right! Will the surrender monkeys read this? I doubt it!

Not low enough. I wonder if they even care about the polls anymore?

Why should he?  He became a lame duck the day the won reelection.
