President Obama’s overall approval numbers have continued to decline when compared to the August and July surveys.

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as President?


44% – approve

54% – disapprove

3% – not sure

Democrats [37% of sample]

76% – approve

24% – disapprove

1% – not sure

republicans [30% of sample]

15% – approve

84% – disapprove

1% – not sure

Independents [29% of sample]

There has also been a relatively small, though still continuing, decline in approval among Democrats. The republican approval numbers have remained essentially unchanged. The “Independent” numbers have improved. While the “Independent” numbers have improved slightly this subsample is larger than the August poll and contributed to the decline in the overall approval number. The difference between the August and September approval numbers is still within the margin of error in both polls.
