Washington, DC (WSYR-TV/CNN) – President Obama’s approval rating tumbled as he joined world leaders in Northern Ireland on Monday for the G8 Summit.
According to a CNN/ORC poll, 45 percent of Americans believe the president is doing a good job.
Six in 10 Americans object to the way the President has handled surveillance of US citizens, scoring worse than President Bush did on the issue during his tenure.
The number of Americans who think Obama is honest, dropped eight points since May. Though it’s long been his strong suit, only 49 percent of Americans say he’s trustworthy.
He rates above 50 percent on terrorism, but that number took a 13-point hit in the last month.
The drop was most significant among Obama’s core supporters as he took a 17-point plunge among people under the age of 30.
