Obama's popularity falls below 40%

Washington. .- The popularity of Barack Obama stands for the first time below 40%, according to a Gallup poll published on Sunday. The study reveals that only 39% of Americans approve of the president's action, compared with 54% who expressed dissatisfaction. These are the lowest since he took office, according to U.S. media.
The popularity of the president of the United States, which intends to renew its mandate in the 2012 elections, had reached 53% in the weeks following the death of al-Qaeda leader Osama bin Laden, killed by special forces on last May in Pakistan. However, the affinity with the president declined with the economic data which showed anemic growth and after the decision by ratings agency Standard & Poors to lower the debt rating of the United States.

The survey was conducted by telephone between November 1500 and August 13. Its margin of error estimated at plus or minus three points.
