While President Obama's Attorney General, Eric Holder, faces a possible perjury charge and increased calls for his resignation over the Justice Department's outrageous spying on the media -- elsewhere, another scandal is taking another kind of toll. A new Quinnpiac poll shows that the public is far from satisfied that the IRS matter is settled. A full 76% want a special prosecutor named; that includes 63% of Democrats.

Well, Obama did promise to bring us together. Let's just hope he was wrong about the oceans rising.

Quinnipiac also shows that the confluence of three scandals (the two listed above and Benghazi) are starting to collectively erode the President's approval rating. At the beginning of May, Obama enjoyed a 48% approval rating with 45% disapproving. A month later he is upside down at 45% - 49%.

The Real Clear Politics poll of polls shows almost no slide for Obama. May 1, Obama sat at 48% - 47%. Today, Obama sits at 48% - 48%. Gallup has Obama at a relatively healthy 50% - 43%. Rasmussen is 49% - 51%. As of now, Quinnipiac is something of an outlier poll, but it is also the most recent.

This erosion in the President's approval rating might be coming from how the American people perceive Obama on the issue of trustworthiness. The last time Quinnipiac surveyed on this issue (September of 2011), 58% saw Obama as honest and trustworthy, with only 37% disagreeing. Today that number sits at 49% - 47%.

Hope no one misses the point here, and starts bitching about poll numbers.

The government cannot give you anything without first taking it from someone else.

I suppose the drop is the right direction, but I don't understand how the approval rating can be over 5%... ( the 5% that thought the poll worker had asked them if they would like a free sandwich )

If you dont understand how this all isnt a complete tragedy you probably need to go back and gain an understanding of how the Nazis rose to power. Once you allow a simple (51+%)majority to dictate how the 49% are allowed to think it all pretty much goes downhill.
If you disable the braking system once you are headed downhill there is very little chance of keeping the speed under control and theres little hope of avoiding a huge wreck.
Its now kind of too late to turn into the bank and stop the acceleration before its too late to avoid catastrophe.
