Respected analyst and pollster John Zogby asks "Is it all over for him?" U.S. President Obama's approval ratings are officially in the dumpster. Americans are so down on Obama that a recent Quinnipiac University survey has declared him the worst president in six decades.
"Mr. Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term," John Zogby said in releasing his latest numbers.
LOS ANGELES, CA (Catholic Online) - Zogby this week found that most don't believe that Obama can lead the country.
"Mr. Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term," Zogby said in releasing his latest numbers.

"In short, we see a president in full salvage mode. He is not only racing for his legacy but for his relevancy," Zogby added.
Zogby found one thing positive in all of his polling: As much as Americans disapprove of Obama, they like Congress even less.
Among his latest findings, Zogby found that the President's support has dropped 2 points among men (44 percent to 42 percent); women 4 points (49 percent to 45 percent); 30-49 year olds (5 points, 51 percent-46 percent); Democrats (81 percent to 77 percent); independents 7 points (39 percent to 32 percent); liberals 7 points (83 percent to 76 percent); Hispanics 6 points (73 percent to 67 percent); African Americans 10 points (86 percent to 76 percent); and voters in union households 5 points (65 percent to 60 percent).
Those who were more likely to be ashamed of the president include Republicans (73 percent-11 percent) and conservatives (73 percent-11 percent); whites (46 percent-32 percent); both groups over 50 (50-64 year olds, 44 percent-39 percent, and those 65 and older (49 percent-36 percent).
While the partisanship splits are predictable, Obama finds himself in the uncomfortable position where every age group, independents, and whites all agree that the public has given up on his ability to accomplish anything before the end of his term.
