Obama mosque stance hurting, Gallup finds, as Americans disapprove of it and him

President Obama busily continued his five-state cross-country political money collection tour [2] today.

But he took time out to declare that he has “no regrets” about his firm statement of support [3] for a new mosque and social center near the site in New York City of the Sept. 11 terrorist attacks.

Shortly after, Gallup released a new overnight poll showing, however, that many Americans have regrets that their president made that statement.

The new survey [4] found that among the 57% of Americans with an opinion, 37% of Americans disapprove of the Democrat’s mosque comments. Twenty percent support them. Another 41% said they don’t yet know enough to have an opinion.

Two-thirds of Americans told Gallup they are paying a great deal or fair amount of attention to the mosque issue, which Gallup suggests is playing a role in Obama’s overall approval this week falling to 41% [5], the lowest level of his 19-month presidency.
