PRINCETON, NJ - U.S. President Obama's approval ratings among blacks and Hispanics slipped in March, but both groups still approve of the job he's doing, Gallup said Thursday.
Eighty-five percent of blacks and 54 percent of Hispanics asked said they approve of Obama's job performance, but the ratings slipped to either tie or set new lows, results indicated.
Obama's approval among whites, at 39 percent, remains above where it was in the latter part of 2010.
Obama's approval ratings was more positive among the young, non-married, highly educated, lower income and less religious demographic segments than their opposites, the Princeton, N.J., polling agency said.
Results are based on nationwide telephone interviews conducted as part of Gallup Daily tracking March 1-31 with 15,744 adults. The margin of error for the total sample is 1 percentage points.
