Over the course of August, Gallup asked 15,343 American adults whether they approved of the way Barack Obama was handling his job as president. The final result, the polling company reported today , was that only 41 percent said they approved, giving Obama the lowest monthly approval rating of his presidency.
That is down 25 points from the 66 percent monthly approval Obama won in January 2009, the month he was inaugurated.
Obama also hit his lowest monthly approval among Hispanics during August, and tied his lowest monthly approval among blacks.
During the month, Gallup interviewed 1,183 Hispanics and 48 percent of them said they approved of the job Obama was doing as president. Gallup also interviewed 1,137 blacks during August and 84 percent said they approved of the job Obama was doing.
