Obama, Democrats Sliding in Polls

I’m not sure whether it is his involvement with the Democrats’ PR debacle in Wisconsin, or his detachment from events in the Middle East, or the continuing weak economy, but President Obama is sliding in the polls. In Scott Rasmussen’s Approval Index, he has plummeted to -20, one of his worst showings ever:
Obama’s overall approval rating with likely voters is also deeply in the red, at 44/55. In the Gallup poll, which is not a likely voter survey, Obama is down to a 46 percent approval rating.
In the generic Congressional survey, Rasmussen now has the Republicans leading the Democrats by nine points, 46/37. That suggests that voters’ disgust with Obama and the Democrats comes more from the party’s disgraceful showing in Wisconsin and the poor economy than from Obama’s weak performance in foreign affairs.
