( - The percentage of Americans who say they approve of the way President Barack Obama is handling his job as president has dropped back into the 30s, according to the Gallup poll.

Over the three-day period that ended yesterday, says Gallup, Obama's approval averaged only 39 percent. That was down from 40 percent for the three-day period that ended on Tuesday and 42 percent for the three-day period that ended on Monday.

Obama's current 39-percent approval in the Gallup poll is just one point above his all-time low of 38 percent.
