Gas Prices Take Toll On Obama's Approval Rating

President Obama touts an "all-of-the-above" approach to America's energy needs. That said, many of us know that the Obama administration could do more to ease prices at the pump. And now the president's approval numbers are taking a hit - thanks in large part to his stuborness on the issue, according to the latest Washington Post/ABC News poll. USA Today's David Jackson has more:

Obama's ... approval rating is down to 46% in the survey, in large part because of one issue: Rising gas prices.

"Nearly two-thirds of Americans say they disapprove of the way the president is handling the situation at the pump, where rising prices have already hit hard," the Post reports. "Just 26% approve of his work on the issue, his lowest rating in the poll."
