President Barack Obama’s approval rating dropped by 23 percent among Hispanics since December 2012, according to a Gallup poll released Thursday

This drop is the largest among major groups and almost double the national average, according to Gallup. The president’s approval dropped 12 points among all Americans since last December, the poll found.

Gallup did not attribute the major dip among Hispanics to any particular policy or action, but noted that Obama’s ratings among the group has varied the most of any group since Obama took office.

Gallup surveyed 14,352 adults Nov. 1-30 via telephone with a margin of error plus or minus 4 percentage points.
