It’s time for the President to hit the campaign trail! And if it wasn’t obvious, check the Gallup polls. Just as soon as the candidate’s feet hit the pavement, the polls come out in full swing. When Clinton ran the second time (and when the Monica Lewinsky fiasco jumped off) he was disabled by the American people because obviously, his numbers dipped. Same thing going on with President Obama–folks don’t like the bills, the threat of a government shutdown, and unemployment amongst blacks.
The poll shows that whites, blacks and Hispanics approval numbers for the President have been what we would think they would be since 2009. White America have the lowest numbers of approval, Hispanics stay in the middle while African Americans keep the highest numbers across both years. Even with the dip in approval ratings amongst minorities in March, they are still higher than whites.
