Increasing Number Of California Voters Disapprove Of President Obama

SACRAMENTO (CBS/AP) — A new Field Poll finds that California voters increasingly disapprove of President Barack Obama’s job performance while fewer than half support his handling of health care.

The poll released Tuesday shows that 51 percent of registered voters approve of the job Obama is doing, the lowest mark in two years.

At the same, 43 percent disapprove, up 8 percentage points since Field’s last survey in July.

Meanwhile, just 43 percent approve of his handling of health care, while half disapprove. Obama’s approval ratings are higher on the economy and foreign policy.

Overall, 55 percent of those surveyed still have a favorable view of the president.
