Reuters Poll Tracks President Obama Approval At Just 35%

president obama job approval polls

President Obama’s job approval polls are tracked and aggregated on PPD, including polls conducted by Gallup, Reuters, AP/GfK, Rasmussen Reports and more.

The Reuters/Ipsos poll that tracks President Obama’s approval rating on a five-day rolling average found the president’s approval has fallen to 35 percent, a new low. The intensity level is strongly against the president as he starts a bombing campaign in Syria to “degrade and destroy” the ISIS terror group.

While 36.9 percent of American adults strongly disapprove of the job the president is doing, just 17 percent say they strongly approve of the job he is doing. President Obama’s approval is currently tracking at 40.6 approve to 55 percent disapprove on the PPD average of polls, but it remains to be seen whether the president gets a bump from the bombing campaign.

Currently, just 35 percent in the PPD average approve of the job the president is doing on foreign policy, while 58 percent disapprove. That is a staunch reversal from the president’s first term.

In June, 2014, following the prisoner exchange that resulted in the release of the dangerous Taliban Five in return for Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl, a known deserter and potential collaborator captured and held by the Haqqani network in Pakistan for five years, Obama’s handling of foreign policy fell to an all-time low. It has remained in the mid-to-high 30s on the PPD average ever since.

The Reuters poll was based on 1,593 responses from American adults and has a margin of error of 2.8 percent.
