Rasmussen: Obama sinking on foreign policy approval ratings 

Bad polling news for President Obama just keeps rolling in, this time falling public approval ratings on his handling of foreign policy issues in the wake of his nationally televised address on the Libyan situation last week.

"A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters shows 37% give the president good or excellent ratings on his handling of national security issues," Rasmussen said. "Slightly more voters (40%) say the president is doing a poor job when it comes to national security."

That represents a five-point decline from the 43 percent mark of approval Rasmussen found for Obama just after his decision to get the U.S. involved militarily in the Libyan civil war.

"Positive marks for the president on national security are now at their lowest level since he took office in January 2009. His poor rating is the highest measured since last August," Rasmussen said.

"One year ago, 45% gave the president positive ratings on national security, while 32% rated the job he was doing as poor," Rasmussen said.
