Last December President Obama boasted a 53 percent (average) approval rating. Eleven months later, however, only 41 percent on average now approve of the job he’s doing as president -- a remarkable reversal. Millennials, in other words, mustn’t be the only ones losing faith in their president. As it happens, so are Hispanics, non-whites, moderates, the poor, and just about everyone else:

Obamacare aside, perhaps one reason why the president’s approval ratings are plummeting is because Americans' distrust of the president is growing. And public relations "blunders" like these aren’t going to change their minds.
