To no surprise, the headline doesn’t quite match the story.
President Obama’s approval rating has declined significantly in Iowa over the past few months, according to a new survey that reflects a trend shown in polling nationwide.
The survey, conducted by Quinnipiac University, shows 55 percent of registered voters in the state disapprove of Obama’s job performance, while 41 percent approve.
That’s a drop from the last Quinnipiac poll of the state, conducted in May, that showed 50 percent disapproving of the President’s job performance, while 45 percent approved. And it’s significantly worse than his average approval rating nationwide for the second quarter of his second term.
The newest Gallup average of daily tracking polls for the last three months shows his approval rating at 47.9 percent.
