(MCCLATCHY) President Barack Obama's job approval ratings have sunk to an historic low in anational poll released Tuesday, following a month of bad headlines chronicling the error prone rollout of his health care law.
American voters disapprove of the job Obama is doing by a 54 percent to 39 percent margin -- his lowest approval rating in any Quinnipiac University national poll since he became president in 2009. Even women -- Obama's biggest supporters -- disapprove of his performance by 51 percent to 40 percent.
The numbers are a slide from the 49 percent to 45 percent disapproval rating Obama had in a similar poll on Oct. 1. His lowest score before today was a 55 percent to 41 percent disapproval in an Oct. 6, 2011 survey by the university.
