Barack Obama’s popularity has slumped to a new career low – hovering at just above 40% according to two new polls.

One, commissioned by the Washington Post /ABC indicated that the President’s approval ratings had slumped to an all-time low of 43% whilst a second count conducted by politico/George Washington University, put it at 45%.

The polls represent a continued slip in support since May as grim jobs figures have sapped American morale and are an extraordinary turnaround in fortunes for a politician once idolised as the candidate of hope and change in 2008.

Norm Ornstein, a political analyst at the American Enterprise Institute, said: “If anything can serve as a wake-up call – as if we haven't had enough alarm calls already – these polls ought to do it.”
