More bad poll news for President Obama.
According to Gallup , Obama’s approval average hit an all-time low in the last quarter (his 11th) falling as low as 38%.
Gallup reports that from July 20-Oct. 19, 2011, Obama’s approval rating “ranged narrowly between 38% and 43%  for all but a few days of the quarter.”
His 41% average is a full six points down from his 10th quarter.
This is not just a low for Obama it’s also an historical low. Gallup notes that the only president since Dwight Eisenhower to have a lower 11th quarter was Jimmy Carter who hit 31%.
