This is awful– Just awful!
Maybe it’s the record unemployment, or his record spending, or his failed planning, or the climbing misery index, or his failed policies, or his record deficit, or his constant apologizing, or his trashing the cops, or his radical plans to takeover the health care industry…
Whatever the reason Dear Leader’s popularity has tanked. The radical leftist has seen his presidential index number drop an amazing 44 points since he took office!
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. These figures mark the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President. The previous low of -12 was reached on July 30 (see trends).
Prior to today, the number who Strongly Approved of the President’s performance had never fallen below 29%. Some of the decline has come from within the President’s own party. Just 49% of Democrats offer such a positive assessment of the President at this time.
At the other end of the spectrum, today’s total for Strongly Disapprove matches the highest level yet recorded. The 41% mark was reached just once before and that came one week ago today. Seventy percent (70%) of Republicans now Strongly Disapprove along with 49% of those not affiliated with either major party.
