Obama's Approval Rating Drops

(AP) -- President Barack Obama's approval rating in Wisconsin dipped to 44 percent in a new poll, the lowest of his presidency so far.

The St. Norbert College Survey Center Poll released Wednesday shows his approval rating dropped to 44 percent from 50 percent in the fall and 60 percent from a year ago, shortly after his term began.

The approval rating for Congress was far lower at 14 percent. That was down dramatically from 39 percent in the spring but roughly equivalent of the 16 percent approval rating in the fall of 2008.

Thirty-eight percent say they think the country is headed in the right direction, the same as in the fall.

The telephone poll of 400 Wisconsin residents was done between March 23 and March 31 and has a margin of error of plus of minus 5 percentage points.
