New surveys show steep declines in Obama's approval ratings among whites -- including Democrats and independents -- who were crucial elements of the diverse coalition that helped elect the country's first black president. Among white Democrats, Obama's job approval rating has dropped 11 points since his 100-days mark in April, according to surveys by the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press.

Rangel (D-N.Y.), 78, chairman of the House Ways and Means Committee, insisted he had made innocent errors of omission, not acts of deliberate deception or greed. The errors, he said, would be corrected in amended filings to the IRS and Congress.
