Business Owners Give Obama A Miserable Approval Rating

Business owners are now the group of the workforce most disapproving of President Barack Obama, according to a new poll from Gallup this morning. Fifty-nine percent of business owners disapprove of the job he is doing, and his approval rating has plunged to just 35 percent among the group.

Obama's approval rating among business owners has fallen 6 points in the second quarter of the year.

The Gallup poll measures a three-month period and was taken before presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney began hammering Obama on his "you didn't build that" comment from a July speech. More likely, it's an indicator of the backlash from sluggish economic growth in the second quarter of 2012.

That comment pissed a lot of small business people off.Like someone else worked 60-70 hours a week. Like someone else held 8 or 10 paychecks so employees checks would clear.Then you stick with it and start making some money and sombody else built it? Kiss me where the sun doesn't shine.
