According to the New York Times on Monday, March 12, 2012, President Obama’s approval rating in recent weeks showed that it dropped to 41 percent with 47 percent disapproval, which is being believed to affect his re-election campaign.

As noted the report, the poll provided a statistical reminder of how unsettled and unpredictable this year’s political landscape remains, in which the same poll last month resulted a to 50 percent approval for Mr. Obama.

Based on the said poll, where the full context can be found at CBS News, the 41 percent approval rating for the US president consisted of 5 % Republicans, 78% Democrats, and 37% Independents; while his disapproval rating has risen to 89% among Republicans, as compared to last month’s 82%.

On the other hand, President Obama’s job rating economy remains almost the same as compared to last month, with 39% approval and 54% disapproval, with 54% of Americans now believes that he can do a lot to control gas prices.

Nevertheless, Mr. Obama’s approval rating on foreign policy also dropped significantly, now with 40% approval, a drop of 10 points as compared from last month’s data; with 41% disapproval, which was said to be the first time since Osama bin Laden was killed back in May 2011.
