Obama's approval index...lowest yet
The latest Rasmussen poll numbers on Obama seem to confirm the general thoughts from our readers in last week's poll about Obama's future poll numbers: He's losing ground.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 38% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. With just a few exceptions, that number has remained steady on a daily basis between 38% and 42% since Inauguration Day.
Thirty-two percent (32%) now Strongly Disapprove of the President’s performance, the highest level of disapproval measured to date. The rising negative is driven by Republicans, 58% of who Strongly Disapprove of Obama’s performance. Since Inauguration Day, Republican opposition has doubled.
These figures give Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +6, his lowest rating to date...
Not this is really a big surprise, given that the guy got elected by being all things to all people (or at least "all things" to a majority of the electorate).
The only problem with that is, eventually you have to start governing...which means supporting or opposing policies. Which means more people are now seeing this guy for what he really is.
Which isn't good for the Bamster.
