The President's approval rating among Democrats fell to 78%, its lowest point in our interactive polling since August 31, 2009, when it was 75%. His overall approval remains unchanged from last week, and is tied with the lowest overall approval rating recorded in the August 31, 2009 survey.

Our question offers voters choices of both somewhat and strongly approve or disapprove. Our polling has consistently found those that strongly disapprove to be greater than all who somewhat or strongly approve combined. In this poll, 48% strongly disapprove.

The poll conducted from Nov. 12-15, 2010 also found the percentage of voters saying the nation was on the wrong track up one percentage point to 64%.

Pollster John Zogby: "These are danger zone numbers for Obama among Democrats. They come after a bad election and a bad trip to the Group of 20 economic summit. Obama's support among Democrats could drop even further if he and his party appear to cave to Republicans in the lame duck session of Congress."

The interactive poll consisted of 2,062 likely voters and has a margin of error of +/-2.2%.  A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the U.S., was invited to participate.  Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, and education to more accurately reflect the population.
