Posted on 11/02/2009 10:13:18 AM PST by Mikey_1962
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.

Solid double digit base....trending down....
Perfect time for him to go campaigning in NJ. Go 0 go!
The strongly disapprove number stays constant at 40. It is the strongly approve number than moves around.
Like a bad organ transplant, the Body American is rejecting him. Despite all the anti-rejection drugs the MSM pumps into the nation.
Ultimately, Obamunism is incompatible with America.
When he gets down to 14% approval, you will know exactly who supports him. The question is, what will the country do about it?
Down goes Frazier, down goes Frazier!
What a prescient analogy!!!
Still have too many ignorant cult nitwits hanging on the Democrats who are screwing them and they don’t know it. What a sad bunch.
Woo Hoo!! -13 is as good a downward trend that there’s been! Wish he’d come and campaign one more time in VA for Deeds! That would seal it for McDonnell!!
I figure that HAS to be pretty close to his floor.
Figure 12-14 % of the country is African American.
Another 10-15% of people are moonbats, or white guilt libs, or always vote Dem, regardless of who's on the ballot, or can't admit that they were wrong in 2008.
27% has got to be close to a bottom. Maybe not THE bottom (0%) but as close as we're gonna get. And not even a year into the presidency. This has gone better than I hoped.
The 52/46 overall and 54/42 0bamacare numbers have to be speaking to the Blue Dog democrats. If the numbers are this nationwide, the numbers in districts that went for McCain have to be crazy against 0bama and 0bamacare. Those Dems have to realize they are committing political suicide to support 0bama.
On a separate note: why does Obama appear as a spelling error and 0bama does not?
>> This has gone better than I hoped.
I continue to be amazed at how little real damage Bambi has caused, considering the ENORMOUS potential for damage with the large (D) majorities in both houses.
Not only that, but Bambi and his “friends” have rendered themselves damaged goods, with no credibility, in record time. Their days in power are numbered.
The Lord works in mysterious ways, and even in the midst of utter chaos it’s He that is really in control.
Is this his lowest? I don’t remember it being this low before, but I could be wrong.
-14 was the low.
C’mon -15, c’mon!
OOOOH!!!! So, so close! I will cross my fingers for tomorrow!
Did anyone see Chris Wallace interviewing Rush Limbaugh on Fox News Sunday yesterday? I thought Rush did a great job explaining how bad Obama is for our country.
The Presidential approval index is nice, but the overall approval ratings are the key.
When Bambi hits 40%, the MSM will smell blood in the water and will go after him with a vengeance.
The only thing the MSM loves more than Bambi is the belief that they can take anyone down.
It could get lower than that, if his core supporters get disappointed at his failure to accomplish anything towards the socialist agenda.
Don't get me wrong - there's still plenty of potential there....what with Health Care, Cap and Tax, and this thing in Copenhagen coming up. There's plenty of opportunity for long-term damage to occur.
I will say, though, that the damage he's done has been reversible so far. And, that things are looking much better than I thought they'd be this time last year.
>> There’s plenty of opportunity for long-term damage to occur.
Our younger conservative relatives and friends have been telling us since this summer, that Rahm 0b0z0 has been losing his independent supporters. They appear to be correct.
He had a -14 once.
Yea! Lower..lower..lower...The Kenyan does the limbo...
Yea! Lower..lower..lower...The Kenyan does the limbo...
Yep. Good analogy. The OBAMANISTAS are like a huge boil in the skin of America.
It needs to be lanced, then we need to squeeze out all the puss and foul smelling rot from inside and wash the former the whole thing down with disenfectant.
Lot's of sunshine and BLEACH!!! (are you gonna bring da CLOROX???)
I wanna wield the scalpel.
CARVE! Mr. NAILER... CARVE!!!
Just don’t ask me to squeeze out any of the puss!!! (ewwwwwwwwww)
It went down to -14 one day a few months ago, but it has been -10 or worse since October 16, except for two days at -9.
