Opinion Poll of President Obama and the First Lady

(KSLA) – A new opinion poll that was just released shows surprising numbers in who Americans favor, President Obama or his wife Michelle.

Michelle Obama's job approval rating shows that 55 percent of those asked if they like what she is doing as a First Lady. That is a 5 percent increase from when the poll was conducted in 2008. People who dislike Michelle has also risen up from 17 percent to 19 percent.

The numbers are not so flattering for her husband, President Barack Obama. The same poll shows Americans are losing favor with the President. Obama's approval rating has reached a new all time low.

Just 44 percent of registered voters like the job he is doing, while 48 percent disapprove. In the same poll conducted 2 years ago, the President enjoyed a 57 percent approval rating.
