Obama's Approval Rating Falls

According to a Quinnipiac University poll released today, President Barack Obama's job approval rating has dropped to 50-42 percent, the lowest level since Inauguration Day.

Peter Brown, assistant director of the Connecticut university's polling institute, told Bloomberg News that Americans are upset about rising unemployment and worried that health-care plans being considered by Congress will increase the federal budget deficit, Newsday reports.

The news was slightly better for Obama in a separate CNN poll also released Thursday, which pegged Obama's approval rating at 56% -- down five points since June and seven points since April, The New York Daily News reports.

"Since April, Obama's rating has stayed steady among white women, but he has dropped 14 points among white men. A majority of white men supported him at the 100-day mark, but now most white men disapprove of how he is handling his job," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "Obama has also slipped among non-whites, but he still gets support from over 70 percent of that group," CNN reports.
