President Barack Obama’s presidential approval rating is still tanking, and in the new Fox Poll it is continuing its upside-down decent, but there are three reasons for the precipitation in Obama’s approval rating. Overall, Obama’s approval rating is underwater by 8%, as 43% of voters approve and 51% disapprove of his performance. The implications from these recent numbers are far-reaching for the next generation of conservatives burdened with the task to rebuild a party with national appeal, capable of building a majority coalition.

In a recent survey, Gallup found that Americans still rate the Republican Party – 39% – less favorably than the Democratic Party – 46%. However, both parties’ favorability ratings are down from November 2012, just after the presidential election. The Democrats’ favorability rating dropped more, down from 51%, which was a post-election bump just after President Barack Obama won re-election. Even though Americans’ ratings of the Democratic Party clearly show that bump is over, their views of the GOP are the lowest since May of 2010.
