gallup poll

President Barack Obama is taking a long Fathers Day weekend vacation in California as his administration founders under the weight of accumulating damage from myriad scandals, an un-stemmed flood of illegal alien children on the U.S. southern border and the near collapse of Iraq.

The Gallup poll three day average of Obama’s approval-disapproval released Sunday, June 15 has his disapproval hitting 55% , nearing the record high Gallup disapproval set in late August 2011.

Obama’s approval rating is at 40% putting him underwater by a remarkable 15 points.

Obama’s approval-disapproval has trended downward quickly from just two days ago on June 13 when he stood at 43% approval to 51% disapproval–an 8 point spread.

Heading in to this weekend Iraq was in danger of being overrun by the Sunni terrorist group ISIS; the IRS informed the House Friday afternoon that it had allegedly lost two years of emails by IRS scandal figure Lois Lerner; U.S. Border Patrol agents were sounding the alarm about Obama’s anarchy on the southern border and the fallout from the deadly VA scandal and Obama’s trade with the Taliban of five senior terrorists for the Army deserter Sgt. Bowe Bergdahl were till reverberating.

The news media, as can be expected, is ignoring this latest collapse in Obama’s support.

Just last week, Gallup announced that it was expected Obama’s support would stay steady at 44% for the month of June.
