Skip to comments.Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (-16!)
Posted on 12/12/2009 6:34:23 AM PST by Scanian
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% 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 -16. Thats the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).
The 25% who Strongly Approve matches the lowest level of enthusiasm yet recorded. Thats partly the result of declining enthusiasm among Democrats. While Democrats continue to offer their approval, just 43% Strongly Approve.
Among all voters, 36% now believe that the president is doing a good or an excellent job handling the economy while 45% rate his performance in this area as poor. Seventy-one percent (71%) of Democrats say hes doing a good or excellent job on the economy while 74% of Republicans say poor. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 52% give the President poor marks when it comes to the economy.
On national security matters, 39% rate the presidents performance as good or excellent while 36% say poor. Most voters nationwide lack confidence that NATO will do its part to help in Afghanistan. The Presidents new plan for Afghanistan draws mixed reviews from voters.

More bad news for the socialist muslim from Kenya.
I wonder how much of this downtrend is from the heavy-handed EPA maneuver...
Congratulations, Zero...a new record! -16!!!

If not sooner.
Added to ‘breaking news’ sidebar.
Won’t matter. He had the independents in ‘08 but he won’t have them in ‘12. Palin will.
I thought his little Oslo half-assed, pro-America speech might help him but I’d hazard a guess that it pissed the peaceniks off and had practically no effect on everybody else.
Overall tabulation shows the nearest to this -16/25% was end of August at -14/28%.
What was going on then?
Looks like the exact crossover point from + to - for Ras’s wierd metric was exactly July 4.
Pray that America has come to its senses. Pray that this man cannot do any further harm to our country. Pray that American values and its freedoms will outlast this assault on the greatest country on Earth.
GOOD MORNING!!!! unless you are an odumbo supporter
Worst. President. Ever.
It made mine too, after two days of gloomy weather in W Central FL!
