Can Obama raise his job-approval ratings enough for a political recovery? – The Washington Post

Here’s a surprisingly complex question: Can President Obama recover, politically speaking? And if so, what would that recovery look like?

The president is mired in the worst extended polling dip of his five years in office, dragged down by a series of scandals (National Security Agency spying, IRS targeting) and fumbles (the rollout of HealthCare.gov).

Gallup’s month-by-month breakdown of Obama’s 2013 job-approval numbers shows a steady decline, from 52 percent in January to 41 percent by December. The Washington Post-ABC News poll pegged Obama’s job-approval rating at 55 percent in January 2013; he ended the year with just 43 percent of Americans approving of the job he was doing as president.
