US President Barack Obama’s popularity has slumped to an all-time low, with a majority of Americans for the first time believing him to be dishonest and untrustworthy, according to new survey.
The respected Quinnipiac University Poll found that Mr Obama’s approval rating had nosedived to the level of unpopularity faced by Republican predecessor George W. Bush at the same stage of his presidency.
Overall, the poll said 54 per cent disapproved of the job Mr Obama was doing against 39 per cent who approved.
The findings mark a significant downturn from an October 1 survey which put Mr Obama’s disapproval rating at 49 per cent to 45 per cent approval.
