Obama's weekly rating lowest yet

It's been said that many Democratic congressional candidates appreciate President Obama coming into address fund raisers with well heeled party faithful ready to dish out moola for their campaigns. But they don't want him publicly stumping for them.

And for good reason.

The latest Gallup poll gives Obama the lowest weekly job approval rating yet. And it comes on the heels of the previous week's poll which was already his record low.

The 43 percent approval rating given the president is 1 percent lower than the previous week.

That's his job approval rating. The number of Americans who say they disapprove of his job performance is now at 50 percent - a new weekly high.
