1 Obama approval on Tue Jan 05, 2010 12:22 am


My words//I don't set much store in this/
but i found it interesting/because the Republicans don't have a very good one either

oh well
wonder where we go from here

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% 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 -15 (see trends).

The number of Democrats in the United States has fallen to the lowest level in at least seven years. Still, the GOP has not gained ground. Instead, the number of unaffiliated voters has jumped.

On health care, this week’s tracking shows a slight uptick for the Congressional plan, but most voters are still opposed. When it comes to paying for the cost of the proposed health care reform plan, voters are okay with the idea of taxing the rich, but strongly reject cuts in Medicare and excise taxes on “Cadillac” plans provided by employers. Most voters favor prohibiting coverage of abortions with plans that receive federal subsidies, but those who generally support the plan tend to oppose the abortion provision.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove. To get a sense of longer-term trends, check out our month-by-month review of the President’s numbers.

Over the weekend, Politico published a story highlighting how some liberal Democrats are “turning their fire” on Rasmussen Reports. However, the article quotes one Democratic pollster who put it into perspective by saying “sometimes when people are unhappy, sometimes you shoot the messenger.” The Politico story has generated a number of other stories including comments from Bill Kristol, Michael Barone, Nate Silver,and Ed Morrissey.

There is one very distinctive issue you are forgetting, its probably the most important issue of all, and the reason most people don't support Obama, and its this:

He's a Negro!!!
