Obama popularity slips

After a rocky start with tax-evading cabinet appointments and an unpopular stimulus bill, President Obama’s approval rating has slipped. According to Rasmussen, it now stands at 60%, still solid but now well within historical norms.  During the first two months of President Bush’s administration, his approval rating ranged between 57% and 63%, according to Gallup (Rasmussen didn’t exist back then).

Speaking of the unpopular stimulus bill, half of those polled now say it will make things worse, not better.  Only 37% say that’s unlikely.
