Talk about a bad weekend. After failing to reach a deal to prevent the sequester cuts on Friday, President Obama’s job approval rating tumbled over the weekend to 46 percent, hitting the lowest point since he started his second term. His disapproval rating bumped up to 46 percent, while just a week earlier it was at 40 percent and approval was 53 percent. The $85 million in automatic cuts have already begun, though a CBS poll found most Americans blame the GOP, not the president, for failing to avert them.
