Gallup: President Obama’s Job Approval Ratings Steadily Dips In Summer

PRINCETON, N.J., (UPI) — U.S. President Obama’s job approval rating has steadily declined during the summer months of his presidency since he took office, Gallup said Monday.

Obama had higher approvals in the earlier months in the years of his presidency because of events such as the death of al-Qaida founder Osama bin Laden, Gallup said.

There wasn’t one reading in any June, July, or August during the last five years that significantly lowered the average approval rating for Obama in those months, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said. Rather, the summer ratings exhibited a consistent decline.

Gallup said its review indicated Obama’s job approval rating hasn’t increased from the prior month in any of the 15 Junes, Julys, or Augusts during his presidency, showed a decline in 13 of those 15 months, and no change in the other two.

Gallup said the historical information could explain the decline in Obama’s approval rating from 49 percent in May to 45 percent in August.

Obama’s predecessors, George W. Bush and Bill Clinton, did not have the same month-to-month drop in approval rating in summer as Obama, but both Bush and Clinton’s lowest approval averages by month were in June, July, and August, Gallup said.

Because Gallup reviewed data, no one was surveyed and no margin of error was available.
