Gallup Poll: Voter Opposition to Obama at an All-Time High

A recent Gallup poll indicates that voters are unhappier with Obama than they’ve been with his last two predecessors: Registered voters are more likely to view their choice of candidate in this year’s midterm elections as a message of opposition (32%) rather than support (20%) for President Barack Obama.
