Barack Obama:Obama's approval rating on U.S. economy hits new low

Seventy-one percent of Americans said they disapproved of Obama on the economy, up to 11 percentage points since mid-May, the last time Gallup asked people about it.

Approval of his handling of the economy declined by 11 percentage points from 37 percent in mid-May.

The president was equally low approval ratings in other economic issues. Only 24 percent of Americans approve of Obama's handling of the federal budget deficit, while 29 percent approved of his efforts to create jobs.

Since then, however, the approval of his handling of Afghanistan has fallen to 38 percent, possibly due to public reaction to the downing of a U.S. military helicopterin which 30 Americans were killed, most of them elite special forces, special operations, Gallup said.
