President Obama poll numbers in need of resuscitation

Two new polls show President Obama in deep Trouble.

Bloomberg News Poll:
Americans are growing increasingly more frustrated with President Barack Obama’s handling of the economy and only 3 in 10 say they are certain they will vote to re-elect him in 2012, a new poll finds.
Just 23 percent of those surveyed for a Bloomberg News poll released Wednesday say they are hopeful about the economy because they see signs of improvement, while 25 percent say they are fearful things are getting worse and 51 percent are cautious because nothing seems to be happening.
In the 2012 election, do you anticipate you will definitely vote for President Obama, consider voting for another candidate, or definitely vote for another candidate? (Likely voters/All)

Definitely Obama 31/30
Consider another candidate 24/27
Definitely vote for another candidate 40/36
Not sure 5/6
Will not vote (VOL) -/1


American Research Group Poll:
Among Americans registered to vote, 42% approve of the way Obama is handling his job as president and 52% disapprove. On Obama's handling of the economy, 40% of registered voters approve and 55% disapprove.
A total of 47% of Americans say the national economy is getting worse, up from 34% in May. Among those saying they approve of the way Obama is handling his job as president, 72% say the national economy is getting better. Among those saying they disapprove, 76% say the national economy is getting worse.
Crosstabs and more results.
