A newly released USA Today/Gallup poll conducted the week after President Barack Obama signed a fiscal 2011 spending bill he had negotiated with House Speaker John Boehner (R.-Ohio) reveals that Boehner’s favorable rating has dropped among Democrats, Independents–and Republicans.
The poll showed that since January Boehner’s favorable rating had dropped 8 points overall (from 42 percent to 34 percent) and 9 points among Republicans (from 65 percent to 56 percent).
It also showed Boehner’s unfavorable rating at 34 percent, a 12-point increase from January.
From April 20-23, Gallup asked more than 1,000 people whether they had “a favorable or unfavorable” opinion of Boehner. Thirty-four percent said they had a favorable opinion, 34 percent said they had an unfavorable opinion, 18 percent said they never heard of Boehner and 14 percent had no opinion of the speaker.
