(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama’s approval has hit an all-time low among the poorest Americans, according to the Gallup poll. Meanwhile, when compared to the other income brackets reported by Gallup, Obama's approval is highest among the richest Americans.

In the week of June 20-26--the most recent week published by Gallup--only 45 percent of Americans in the lowest income bracket reported by the polling company (those earning less than $2,000 per month) said they approved of the job Obama was doing as president.

Gallup publishes the president’s weekly approval numbers among Americans in four income brackets: those earning less than $2,000 per month, those earning between $2,000 and $4,999 per month, those earning between $5,000 and $7,499 and those earning more than $7,500.

In Gallup's most recent survey, Obama had majority approval in none of these income brackets.

However, of the four, his approval was highest--47 percent--in the richest bracket, those earning more than $7,500 per month.

Well, he's not paying for their mortgages and gasoline like he promised.

"The Rich" have been redefined; they are now those earning more than 7500/month.

I believe that is the lowest number I have ever seen used to define the rich. To be fair, we have to acknowledge that CNS used the figure, not Gallup. Some group had to come out on top and in this case "on top" means 47% approval rating, but it sure shows the efficacy of Obama's class warfare style of campaigning.

Odd approval numbers for a so-called socialist who hates rich people.

Don't forget that the Obama campaign raised more money from banks and wallstreet than any other presidential candidate in history.

Hopefully they learned from their mistakes and 2012 won't be a repeat.

Not odd at all. Obama like Bush have lavished the rich with stimulus, bailouts, tax breaks, etc. Obama bark does not square with his bite. The fat cats will donate to whom they think will win the next election. This time around, the money will be spread around more evenly because they want to be on the winning side. You see, they are looking out for number 1, and could give a shit about the little people.

Weird huh? Of course you can't quite get past the "so called" label and just admit he is a Socialist without the prefix. O Blah Blah promotes a Socialist agenda while enjoying the trappings of those that are "more equal than the rest of us.":cool:

Yes he did. The elites WANT and overbearing government. High taxes and oppressive regulations only HELP them eliminate current and future competition.

Those hallmarks of liberalism create HUGE barriers of entry for new businesses and drive current, smaller companies into bankruptcy.

The Huge corporations can afford to pay this and it is a small sacrifice to make to eliminate the competition.
