Greg Sargent notes that the new New York Times/CBS poll could be bad news for the president. Mainly, the president’s approval dropped to 41 percent while…
Americans are still expressing confidence that the economy is staying the same or getting better, with those who believe that outnumbering those who view the economy as getting worse by nearly three to one.
Sargent thinks this could indicate that voters won’t credit president for the improving economy.
I don’t know for sure. I think the poll is an outlier given that Gallup has the president at 49 percent according to Ashby.
Regardless, it’s worth keeping an eye on Sargent’s analysis.
