    Look out below, poll numbers crater

    **Overall, the poll found Obama’s job approval at 41 percent last week, a sharp drop from April’s 50 percent**

    To quote one of Obama advent supporters Reverend Jeremiah Wright, "the chickens have come home to roost"....:. Amen to that reverend.

    Obama’s job approval plunges

    Stung by Americans’ persistent worries about the economy and a capital gripped by controversy and gridlock, President Barack Obama is suffering his lowest job approval numbers in nearly two years, according to a new McClatchy-Marist poll.

    The plummeting numbers come after weeks of rising gasoline prices, revelations about domestic spying and turmoil in the Middle East.

    The disappointing results come as the White House this week looks to turn the national conversation back to the economy. Obama will deliver the first of a series of speeches Wednesday aimed at offering his vision for boosting economic growth, even as the new poll found that just 37 percent of the respondents approved of his handling of the economy, while 56 percent disapproved.
