Gallup conducted its poll from Feb. 7-10.
Americans disapprove of the way POTUS is handling nearly every issue, including gun control and the federal deficit.
According to a Gallup poll, 42% of Americans approve of Obama’s gun policies while 54% disapprove.
On taxes, 41% approve and 57% disapprove. On the economy, 39% approve and 60% disapprove. On “the situation in the Middle East between the Israelis and the Palestinians,” 36% approve and 55% disapprove.
And on the federal budget deficit, 31% approve and 65% disapprove.
The only area in which Obama gains the support of a majority is on “national defense” issues, but the poll was conducted before North Korea reportedly tested a nuclear weapon on Monday as Obama seeks to diminish America’s nuclear arsenal.

…..only 34% approve of how the president is handling economic issues, with 65% saying they disapprove of how he’s handling the economy. Thirty-three percent give him a thumbs up on the budget deficit and 37% approve of how he’s dealing with unemployment.
Hmmm, wonder who the 34% is? His staff, Harry Reid, and Ed Schultz? Oh, and Warren Buffett who wants to pay more taxes but now it comes out that his company OWES back taxes he has not paid. http://www.businessinsider.com/obama-supporter-warren-buffetts-co-hasnt-paid-some-taxes-since-2002-2011-8
