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.
I have seen this coming since Obama’s election. When your entire presidency is built on an ultra-thin resume, hidden loyalties and agendas and mostly on empty rhetoric — well, it was bound to collapse.
Thanks Obama voters, thanks a lot. At least most of you are starting to see you were punk’d.
And thanks to you, President Obama — you did in 8 months what the previous 220 years of US Presidents didn’t do in combination. Create the largest US debt that will bankrupt future generations. Now go enjoy Martha’s Vineyard with Queen Michelle. We’ll enjoy our cake.
