(CNSNews.com) - President Barack Obama's job approval among liberals has continued to erode, hitting a new all-time low in the Gallup poll last week, according to survey data released today.

In the seven-day period that ended on Sept. 25, only 67 percent of liberals told Gallup they approved of the way Obama was handling his job as president. That was down from 68 percent in the previous week.

The president’s job approval among liberals had also previously dropped to 68 percent in the last full week of August, but it had never dropped below that level until last week.

Obama's approval among liberals hit a high of 92 percent in the Gallup poll in the week that ended on May 10, 2009.
