Presidential Approval Index hits new lows (again)
Rasmussen’s just released Daily Presidential Tracking Poll presents another first for our teleprompter-dependent President. Today marks the first day Obama has enjoyed a negative double-digit Presidential Approval Rating!For the third day in a row, his overall approval rating remains below 50%. Though many other polls still have the President with higher approval numbers, Rasmussen explains many of these polls survey all adults.
|Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty percent (50%) disapprove. It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.|
Obama’s plan to force a government takeover of the health care industry may well have been the straw that broke the camel’s back of public support. As more and more citizen-journalists and other conservative activists continue daily exposing parts of Congress’ bill, more and more Americans learn the truth and see his plan for what it is. Not a reform of the health care system to benefit patients, but a reform of the system to hand over control of our health care decisions to the bureacrats and politicians in Washington!
