Why are Obama's approval ratings so lousy?
Advertisements [?]
He is barely holding his head above water right now. According to Gallup, 49% approve and 44% disapprove.

Its astonishing how quickly the public seemed to sour on Obama, he was close to 70% at one time.

And the trend has been downward ever since, except for recently when he seems to be hovering around 50% for a while now.

Anyone else worried that Obama is not more popular, and any ideas why he is doing lousy in approval?

I'm wondering if Obama may eventually be a drag on the Democratic party and that would really suck.
