As He Hits The Road, Obama's Approval Rating Hits New Low
President Obama today sets off on a bus tour through Minnesota, Iowa and Illinois that will extend into the middle of the week.
And as he does, there's this news from the pollsters at Gallup:
For the first time since the president took office, his approval rating in Gallup's "daily tracking poll" has dipped below 40 percent. It touched 39 percent on Sunday, the polling firm says. The president's "disapproval rating" was 54 percent as of Sunday.
