A new Gallup Poll out this morning finds nearly seven-in-ten Americans disapprove of....

...Obama's handling -- or, rather, lack of handling -- of the federal deficit. That disapproval is up from 64% in November.
Worse, the approval of his deficit unhandling has plummeted 16%, or five points, from 32 down to 27.

Gallup reports, "Pres. Barack Obama's approval rating for handling the federal budget deficit has gone from bad to worse in recent months, even as his ratings on all other major national issues have generally held steady."
