Remember that the daily tracking survey is done on a three-day moving average. It's probably safe to assume -- with this drop from a previous near-low-water mark -- that Obama did not do himself any good with that pathetic speech.
UPDATE: Of course, I missed the obvious take-away from today's numbers: Obama's approval numbers have hit an all-time low of 41 percent! And, as usual, Ed Morrissey over at Hot Air! hits it out of the park with his analysis:
Obama may not be in Bush-approval territory, but that’s the direction he’s heading. One thing is certain: Obama can’t get a bounce any more just from giving a speech.
Take the teleprompter away from The Pantload and he may just as well spend his time out on the links..
