Portion of article:
Washington (CNN)– President Barack Obama's approval rating dropped eight percentage points over the past month, to 45%, the president's lowest rating in more than a year and a half, according to a new national poll.
The CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning comes as the White House has been reacting to controversies over a massive U.S. government surveillance program; the Internal Revenue Service's targeting of tea party and other conservative groups who applied for tax-exempt status; the administration's handling of last September's attack in Benghazi that left the U.S. ambassador to Libya and three other Americans dead; and the Justice Department's secret collection of journalists' phone records as part of a government investigation into classified leaks.
The poll indicates that for the first time in Obama’s presidency, half of the public says they don't believe he is honest and trustworthy. And Americans are split on the controversial National Security Agency anti-terrorism program to record metadata on U.S. phone calls, but they support the NSA program that targets records of Internet usage by people in other countries. That doesn't mean they necessarily like what is going on: Just over six in 10 believe that government is so large and powerful that it threatens the rights and freedoms of ordinary Americans.

Yet you trust CNN, a network with no viewers.
You were wrong, you got caught, and you can't accept it. Be a man and admit it.

Who really cares? In the realm of life, does it really matter at this point?
Polls go up and down, depending what's going on that day.
Gallup screwed up, and I get news all over, different sites, like you.
I am not partial to any one site....are you?

Most interesting:

"The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," says Keating Holland, polling director for CNN.

Of course blacks are angry. The dems now have the Latinos as their pets to whip into a frenzy to get their votes. The black man is no longer needed by the Democratic Party.
