Is that sound you hear the bottom falling out of Barack Obama's approval ratings?

Only 41% of those surveyed Tuesday through Sunday approved of the way Obama is handling his job, his lowest rating in the USA TODAY/Gallup Poll since he took office in January 2009. In Gallup's separate daily tracking poll, his approval was at 45% Monday.

The RCP average of polls shows 45.5% of voters approving and 49.3% of voters disapproving of Obama's job performance.
