In the latest NBC News/Wall Street Journal poll conducted from August 27-31, we find record low approval of the job President Obama is doing and record low approval of his handling of the economy. The percentage of respondents with “very negative” feelings is higher than those with “very positive” feelings about Mr. Obama by more than the margin of error for the first time. On the economy, Americans continue to show signs of worry about a double-dip recession and pessimism about the efficacy of President Obama’s economic policies to date.
