The number of Americans who approve of President Barack Obama’s handling of the sour US economy has slumped to an all-time low for him of 26 percent, according to a poll released Wednesday.

The respected Gallup organization’s findings showed the embattled president down 11 points since mid-May on an issue sure to define his quest for a fresh term in the November 2012 elections.

Obama also won low approval ratings for his handling of the runaway US federal budget deficit, at 24 percent, while just 29 percent approved of his record on job creation at a time of unemployment over nine percent.

Obama got better grades on foreign policy issues, with 53 percent approval for his handling of terrorism, 42 percent for his handling of foreign affairs in general, and 38 percent for his handling of the war in Afghanistan.
