Q poll: Obama's job approval at all-time low, tea party liked more than Rs or Ds

From a nation-wide Quinnipiac University poll: 

President Barack Obama's overall job approval rating has sunk to an all-time low, as American voters disapprove 52 - 42 percent, compared to 47 - 46 percent approval in July, and among whites and men his approval has dropped into the 30s, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Congressional leaders rate even lower in the public eye. 

Voters nationwide are more pessimistic about the economy, saying 49 - 11 percent that it is getting worse rather than improving, a precipitous drop from a July 14 survey by the independent Quinnipiac (KWIN-uh-pe-ack) University, in which voters said 32 - 23 percent the economy was worsening and January 18, when voters said 36 - 20 percent it was improving.....

Only 12 percent of voters consider themselves members of the Tea Party movement, and voters have a 42 - 29 percent unfavorable view of it, which is better than the 51 - 35 percent unfavorable view of the Democrats and 53 - 32 percent unfavorable view of the Republicans. 

"The Tea Party got a lot of negative publicity during the debt ceiling negotiations and most American voters either don't like the group or don't know enough about it to make a decision," said Brown. "Voters do know the Democratic and Republican parties - and they don't like either one."
