SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll of “adults” on June 17th taken in Missouri from June 12th through the 14th. The margin of error is 4.1%. The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

There has been some erosion in approval when compared to the April survey. More on the May survey after this:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as President? (June 2009)

All

45% – disapprove

4% – not sure

Democrats [41% of sample]

82% – approve

16% – disapprove

2% – not sure

republicans [27% of sample]

16% – approve

80% – disapprove

4% – not sure

Independents [25% of sample]

There’s some slippage among “Independents”.

The May report is up on the SurveyUSA website, but has no release date. The interviews took place on May 28th and 29th. The survey has a 600 sample of “adults”, a margin of error of 4.1%, and was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as President? (May 2009)

All

52% – approve

44% – disapprove

4% – not sure

Democrats [42% of sample]

84% – approve

15% – disapprove

2% – not sure

republicans [32% of sample]

16% – approve

81% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Independents [21% of sample]

51% – approve

41% – disapprove

9% – not sure

The “Independents” in this poll appear to be a little underrepresented and a little more positive than the bracketing April and June polls.

There is a distinct gender gap in both the May and June polls, with women giving higher approval numbers to President Obama.
