For the first time in Barack Obama’s reign as US President, more people disapprove of him than approve of him (51% to 49%).

As usual I will provide the monthly poll graph early in the new month once all of this month’s data is in…this is a special “out of cycle” update to note a development which has been coming for some time. I’m glad that this has happened today and not later in the month as I would like to see how this pans out over the rest of the month on the graph, and as this is the first poll to contain responses taken after Barack Obama’s Wednesday night press conference, we will have some time to see where the three-day rolling average goes before the month expires.
These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. Most of the interviews for today’s update were completed before the President’s nationally televised press conference on Wednesday night. The first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the press conference will be released on Sunday.
(text on linked page is updated daily…this text will NOT be on that page tomorrow)
So, basically, the post-Sunday polls will show where the national mood is going after the shock of the press conference has worn off.
