Poll: Obama approval rating drops to new lows

Washington (CNN) – It's becoming a daily story: another national poll, another all-time low for President Barack Obama when it comes to his approval rating.

Wednesday morning it's CBS News. The President's approval rating stands at 37% in their new survey, plunging nine percentage points since last month–a new low for Obama in CBS News polling. The President's disapproval rating shot up from 49% in October to 57% now, a new high.

The President's approval rating has now reached new lows or tied his all-time lows in polls released over the past three weeks from CBS News, ABC News/Washington Post, Quinnipiac University, National Journal Heartland Monitor, and NBC News/Wall Street Journal.

A CNN Poll of Polls, compiled and released Wednesday morning, which averages the three latest non-partisan, live operator national surveys of the President's approval rating (CBS News, Gallup Daily Tracking, and ABC News/Washington Post), puts Obama's approval at 40% and his disapproval at 55%.


OutFront tonight: John King, John Avlon and Nick Ragone discuss Pres. Obama's drop in his approval ratings.

    Anthony Lewis, Journalist: "Most people acquire certainties as they grow older. Bobby Kennedy discarded certainties. He grew. He started as this zealot & he ended up as this man very sympathetic to those who were the despised & rejected of life..."

    Jack Newfield, Journalist & Friend: "He wanted to know what life was like for someone else. He would ask, 'What do you feel? What do you think?' He wanted to be inside the eyes of America's Casualties."

    Lewis: "People believed in his understanding of their situation, because he visibly was moved. He was someone who responded in the most graphic human emotional terms. He was somebody who bled, who was raw from the hurt done to others."

    Newfield: "Anyone who was a casualty in life, he began to feel was his brother."

    "My peers and I have all missed that mark in a thousand different ways. But the point is this:

    It is our failure to become our perceived ideal that ultimately defines us and makes us unique."
