Obama's approval rating takes a plunge

Posted: Updated:

According to a new CNN poll, just 45% of Americans believe the president is doing a good job.

Six in ten Americans object to the way the president has handled surveillance of U.S. citizens. Obama scored worst than former President Bush on this issue.

The greatest decline comes from younger voters. His approval rating among the 18-29 age group fell 18 points and now stands at 48%.

Plus, the number of Americans who think President Obama is honest dropped eight points since May.
