THAT SINKING FEELING:

Obama approval rating sinks to 50%: Poll (AFP, 8/06/09)

Quinnipiac University said the president's job approval rating dipped to 50-versus-42%, a reflection of growing unease over Obama's handling of the economy, which sank into a devastating recession last year prompting his administration to unleash a deficit-stretching stimulus package, and health care which faces a critical overhaul in Congress.
