The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -13 (see trends).
Following release of the House health care plan by Speaker Nancy Pelosi, 42% of voters now support the Congressional effort while 54% are opposed.
In October, 37.8% of American adults considered themselves to be Democrats while 31.9% are Republicans. The number of Democrats has been inching up steadily since July.
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, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove. Its sometimes easy to get caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations of the tracking poll and miss the longer-term trend. Rasmussen Reports also compiles the data on a month-by-month basis which shows that the Presidents ratings slipped a bit in October after stabilizing in September.
Check out our review of last weeks key polls to see What They Told Us. Election Day is Tuesday and Republicans are likely to win back the Governors mansion in Virginia. The race in New Jersey is too close to call.
Lucky 13. It is a beautiful Monday. I think it will be a gorgeous Tuesday.
Obama’s CONTINUOUS campaigning and lack of presidential work ethic are hurting him (among other things).
Effete man overboard!
umm, umm, umm
Barack Hussein 0bama.
I think this is his lowest approval yet.
If Republicans start nominating conservatives, 2010 won’t be close...we’ll take 50 seats. The public is getting tired of TOTUS and its policies. Yet, the current Republican party is not capitalizing (note the dems inched up in party support).
Come on Republicans...let’s get it together!
I can’t wait until the 0 is at -20.
I hear, that like many supermodels, our Princess President has an eating disorder.
He was at -14 on 8/23.
Close—he’s been -14.
It keeps inching and inching the correct direction...
a new record for Presidential Approval freefall
erasing the previous record held by Baaaarrrraaack Oooooobbaaaamaaaaa.
how’s that Hope and Change workin’ out fer ya?
are you talking public opinion polls or his I.Q.?
Actually he has hit 27% approve several times. Here is the history chart.
It's still way too high. Wake up, America!
Third straight day his F/UF has been at 46/52.
I think after Tuesday we will be singing a better song!
Looking for 60% “Strongly Disapprove”.
