A new Gallup poll finds that President Barack Obama’s approval rating with working-class white Americans has fallen to just 27 percent, a record-low for his presidency.
Among whites who’ve graduated college, Obama’s approval stands at 41%, also a new low in the Gallup poll.
Perhaps most troubling of all for Obama: Gallup’s data only extended to the end of October, well before the recent racially-charged riots broke out in Ferguson, Missouri, and protests across the country.
“About two-thirds of adult whites have not graduated from college, making working-class whites a particularly important group politically because of its sheer size,” says Gallup. “At the moment, working-class whites exhibit weak support for the Democrats and their president, and it’s not clear how likely that is to change as time goes on.”
