Today is the second straight day that Obama’s Approval Index rating has fallen to a new low.
Forty-two percent (42%) of the nation's voters Strongly Disapprove of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Only 23% Strongly Approve, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.
The 23% who Strongly Approve matches the lowest level of enthusiasm yet recorded.
And here's a jaw dropping statistic: Among those who consider fiscal policy issues the most important, just 1% Strongly Approve and 81% Strongly Disapprove (clearly just a big bunch of racists).
Obama's Approval Index rating was +30 in January.
Democrats in Congress aren't doing much better than their buddy in the White House. Support for Democrats is down from a 10-point lead in August, and a 25-point advantage at the beginning of the year. Democrats and Republicans in Congress are now locked into a statistical tie.
Americans want Obama and his cronies in Congress to focus on the economy and the deficit. But instead of listening to the voters, Democrats remain obtusely focused on their wildly unpopular health care power grab.
In the latest CNN poll, 61% opposed the Senate health care bill, compared to just 36% who supported it. Americans know this is a bad bill loaded with hidden taxes. Beneficial aspects of the bill are especially well hidden. Only 22% of Americans say that the Democrats' health care scheme would help their family. 79% of Americans say that the Senate bill would increase the federal budget deficit, and 85% of Americans think the Senate bill would increase their taxes.
...And so the decline in support for Obama and his party continues.
Democrats are going need to come up with a very clever trick in order to hide this decline. Where's Dr. Mann when you desperately need him?
