President Barack Obama’s job approval rating averaged 41% in September, tied with August for the lowest monthly approval average of his administration.
Obama began his term with average approval ratings of 66% in January 2009 and 64% in February 2009. His ratings gradually drifted downward from that point, with a slight uptick in January of this year and again in May, after the killing of Osama bin Laden.
Even with Job Approval levels dipping to previous all time lows, Gallup says it is too early to predict re-election chances for the President. While the Above numbers look at a Monthly average, Today’s approval is at 38%
