Two years ago, U.S. President Barack Obama enjoyed stratospheric approval ratings and had virtually every Democrat and Independent voter in America behind him.

Today? That script has been flipped.

According to a new Harris Interactive poll, Obama’s approval rating has plunged to 37 percent – with 67 percent of Americans holding a negative opinion of his policies. Most damning for Obama? Seventy percent of independent voters disapprove of the job he’s doing – and 73 percent of all voters disapprove of his economic policies, which have clearly failed to “stimulate” anything.

These are easily the worst poll numbers Obama has ever seen – much worse than the 44.7 percent approval rating he received in the most recent Gallup poll or the 46 percent approval rating he received in the latest Rasmussen Reports tracking poll.

In South Carolina, a Pulse Opinion Research poll released this week shows that a whopping 50 percent of Palmetto state voters “strongly disapprove” of the job Obama is doing as president compared to 29 percent who “strongly approve.”
