    For the first time in over nine months, Gallup's tracking poll has President Obama's job approval rating sinking to 45%. The last time that happened was back in September of 2012. Moreover, the president's disapproval rating has climbed to 47%, meaning he is upside down. The last time that happened was nearly as long ago.

    Another reliable way to tell if Obama's job approval ratings are sinking is when the media stops talking about it -- which is exactly what we are experiencing now. The media is avoiding talk of Obama's falling poll numbers like the plague.

    Yes, I remember when Obama's approval was 45% in September right before the election, which is why I was so surprised, not that he won so much, but by the margin.

    For historical perspective, Trumans approval rate in the fall of 52 was 22% because of Korea. Nixon's, right before he resigned in 74 was 23%. The two Bushes lowest were 29% and 28%.

    The highest low approval rating was JFK, who never dipped below 50%, and his high was 80%.
