(CNSNews.com) - The middle class is abandoning President Barack Obama, according to data released by the Gallup Poll. The only income bracket among which a majority still says they approve of the job he is doing as president are those earning $2,000 per month or less.

During the week of June 7-13, only 46 percent of Americans overall told Gallup they approved of the job Obama is doing as president, tying for the worst week of Obama's presidency. Two weeks ago, forty-six percent also said they approved of the job Obama is doing, and last week 47 percent said they approved.

But when the president’s approval is separated by incomes groups, it is only the lowest income bracket recorded by Gallup—those who earn less than $2,000 per month—that gives Obama a majority approval rating, with 52 percent saying they approved of the job he is doing as president.

Among those earning $2,000 to $4,999 per month (or $24,000 to $59,988 per year), 46 percent said they approved of the job Obama is doing. Among those earning $5,000 to $7,499 per month ($60,000 to $89,988 per year), 44 percent said they approved of the job Obama is doing. And among those earning $7,500 or more per month ($90,000 per year or more), the highest income bracket recorded by Gallup, 47 percent said they approved of the job Obama is doing.

The last time Obama’s approval topped 50 percent among the $24,000 to $59,988 income bracket was the week of May 10-16, when it was 51 percent. The last time it topped 50 percent among the $60,000 to $89,988 income bracket was the week of May 3-9, when it was 51 percent. The last time Obama’s approval topped 50 percent among the $90,000 and above income bracket was the week of April 19-25, when it was 51 percent.

Obama’s current 52 percent approval among Americans earning less than $2,000 per month is the lowest it has been among that income bracket in his presidency. In the week of April 19-25, his approval was at 60 percent in this income bracket. It has dropped eight points since then.

The week of his inauguration—Jan. 19-25, 2009—Obama’s approval was 73 percent among those earning less than $2,000 per month, 66 percent among those earning between $2,000 and $4,999, 69 percent among those earning $5,000 to $7,499 per month, and 66 percent among those earning $7,500 per month or more.

Trying to parlay an oil spill into a massive carbon tax should do the trick.

To his credit, Obama is doing a good job of expanding his base. More people are falling into that income demographic every day.
