CNN poll: You've lost that loving feeling June 17th, 2013 06:00 AM ET Washington (CNN) â President Barack Obama's approval rating dropped eight percentage points over the past month, to 45%, the president's lowest rating in more than a year and a half, according to a new national poll. The CNN/ORC International survey released Monday morning comes as the White House has been reacting to controversies over a massive U.S. government surveillance program. The poll indicates that for the first time in Obamaâs presidency, half of the public says they don't believe he is honest and trustworthy. Just over six in 10 believe that government is so large and powerful that it threatens the rights and freedoms of ordinary Americans. "The drop in Obama's support is fueled by a dramatic 17-point decline over the past month among people under 30, who, along with black Americans, had been the most loyal part of the Obama coalition," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.co...-approval-falls-amid-controversies/?hpt=hp_t1 Are people finally waking up?
