After a week of apologies, blaming the First Amendment for Middle Eastern riots, using American bodies as political props, whining about Mitt Romney, lying about what actually happened in Libya and revelations of no security at the U.S. consulate in Libya where four Americans were brutally murdered on the anniversary of 9/11, President Obama’s foreign policy approval rating has taken a significant hit, especially with independents according to a new WSJ/NBC news poll.
The poll found approval among registered voters dropped to 49 percent, down from from 54 percent a month earlier, NBC’s FirstRead reports. The fall was steeper among independents, going from 53 percent in August to 41 percent. Even support among Republicans dropped eight points — from 19 percent to 10 percent.
GM may be alive and Osama bin Laden may be dead, but President Obama’s handling of the “Arab Spring” is backfiring.
