Thirty-nine percent of Americans disapprove of President Barack Obama's job performance, according to Monday's edition of the daily Gallup tracking poll, representing the lowest percentage of respondents to give Obama negative marks in Gallup's polling since June of 2011.
It's the latest sign of Obama's post-election bump. Gallup has shown the president with an approval rating of at least 50 percent in every poll conducted after Election Day, while his disapproval rating has remained below 45 percent during the same span. But save for the one time in 2011, Gallup hadn't shown Obama with a disapproval rating below the 40 percent threshold since his first year in office.
The PollTracker Average illustrates Obama's popularity bounce that's followed his re-election.
Correction: The post has been updated to specify that the last time Obama's disapproval rating dipped below 40 percent in Gallup's poll was June of 2011, not November of 2009 as was originally stated. TPM regrets the error.
