Obama Poll Hits New Low

President Obama's jobs tour couldn't stop his approval ratings from hitting a new low in Pennsylvania-a Muhlenburg College poll released on Friday shows that only 35% of voters from that deep blue state approve of the job he is doing. These numbers don't bode well for 2012, in a state that analysts say the president will need to win if he wants a second term:

President Barack Obama, who political experts say will need a win in Pennsylvania to retain the White House, dipped to 35 percent approval among the state's registered voters, according to a Muhlenberg College poll released Friday.

The results come on the heels of a bad week in polls for Obama that showed him first dropping to 39 percent nationwide in Gallup's daily tracking poll. Then another set of Gallup results Thursday showed only 26 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is handling the economy.

These numbers are a huge blow to Obama who won the state handily in 2008, and a significant drop in just a few weeks from when Quinnipiac University polled Pennsylvania voters and found the president with 43 percent job approval.

Some other notable numbers from the poll: 23% say that Obama's policies have helped the economy, 41% say they have hurt, and 32% say his policies haven't impacted the economy.
