Much is made about polls and whether they are to be believed or not. Regardless of how you feel, it appears the recent events in Benghazi and troubling economic news are impacting Obama’s approval numbers in a negative fashion. He has now lost 4 points in the past 2 days of Gallup approval polling.
New Gallup: Obama 49%, Romney 44%. a 1-pt tick down for Obama from yesterday. His job approval ticks down 2 more points (4 in 2 days) to 46%—

Media elites will probably spend a countless amount of airtime and column space explaining the “reasons” for the falling numbers and how it doesn’t really reflect poorly on the president. But, we have a theory: Maybe the people polled are just plain fed up with this administration’s nonsense.
