Obama's Mandate: Down The Drain

    • The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll shows that 40% of the nation's voters now strongly disapprove of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President.

    • Twenty-nine percent (29%) strongly approve giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11. This is the first time his ratings have reached double digits in negative territory.

    • The Presidental Approval Index is based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis.

    • Sunday's update is the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the President’s prime time televised press conference (Gates-Crowley/healthcare).

    • The number who Strongly Approve of the President has remained unchanged since the press conference but the number who Strongly Disapprove has gone up by five percentage points (from 35% on Wednesday morning to 40% today).

    • The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.

    RV: Good point. It's awful when success for the President translates into failure for the country, but that's exactly what we have right now.

    Hi Right Klik:

    Hope you are having a nice weekend! This was good news to read, and very telling too...his core approvers, the same deluded nuts who would approve of him if he held up a bank at gunpoint (kind of like what he's doing to taxpayers) and it was caught on tape will love he NO MATTER WHAT he does.

    The people he bamboozeled to get into office are now waking up and seeing how he really is.

    He must fail or the USA will cease to exist as it has, and will turn socialist or worse. He is a dictator and must fail. The "Office of the President" hopefully will survive, but he must be GONE from it.

    AB: I starting to think there's hope of limiting Obama to one term.

    I just love a growing trend when I see it!

    RightKlik said...

    Anon: I won't argue that point!

    Dr: This is certainly the kind of trend I can live with.

    Maybe he's thinking these polls don't matter if he just gets enough of the civilian obama baton patrol out on voting day.

    RightKlik said...

    DaBlade: good point. We might need a good 15-20 lead in the polls if we're going to overcome the ACORN factor.
