Obama approval sinks to new LOW of 39%.
1. IRS scandal
2. Benghazi scandal
3. AP hacking E-mail & Phone records scandal
Just 39% now give Obama good or excellent marks for handling national security matters.
Rasmussen Poll May 21, 2013
Also, apparently Obama's OVERALL approval ratings as of Monday 5/20 are as followed (courtesy of Nate Silver): Gallup - 49%, Rasmussen - 48%, CNN - 53%, ABC-Washington Post - 51%. Go soak your head toolbag.
1) What does the IRS and AP have to do with "national security?" Apparently you're also not familiar with the difference between causality and correlation. (SHOCKING~~!)
2) I still don't know what the "scandal" with Benghazi is. Did you not read the White House emails that were released detailing their involvement with the talking points, and how the overwhelming majority of the wording was at the hands of the CIA, NOT the State Department? No, of course you didn't, that would require you to actually track the development of a story, rather than simply copy and pasting the headlines from drudge report.
Actually, a new Washington Post-ABC News poll shows the President's popularity is unaffected by these "scandals".
"But a new Washington Post-ABC News poll also finds that allegations of impropriety related to the controversies have yet to affect President Obama’s political standing.
The president’s approval rating, at 51 percent positive and 44 percent negative, has remained steady in the face of fresh disclosures about the IRS, the Benghazi attack and the Justice Department’s secret collection of telephone records of Associated Press journalists as part of a leak investigation."
The poll you refer to was probably the one taken of Fox "News" personalities.
