Skip to comments.Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (WTH? Hussein rising?)
Posted on 11/14/2011 6:56:26 AM PST by ScottinVA
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-eight percent (38%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15 (see trends).
Thats the presidents best Approval Index rating in three months. Still, most voters continue to favor repeal of his primary legislative accomplishment, the health care law.
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, 50% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Thats the first time since June that the president has reached the 50% mark. Forty-nine percent (49%) at least somewhat disapprove.

We are. Retail numbers look a little better because folks are using plastic again, or spending what little savings they've ferreted away since the beginning of the meltdown. Jobs are housing are TERRIBLE and will remain so for quite some time.
“Any more gems ?”
Does your mother know you’re using her computer?
I hate when people like you get to a keyboard unsupervised.
Yup, you assume hiding in place rather than fighting. A lot can happen in a year, and its not going to get better.
Nif, based on some things my Mother told me when I was a kid. She sat me down night and after night telling me what she sees for the future of the USA. She wanted me to learn it and never forget what she was saying. There is nothing that she related to me that has not come to pass.
My Mom died when I was 11, in 1959. She feared for the country, her children and future grandchildren. I did not know why she wanted me to know what she was seeing for the future. Now that I am a grandmother and look back on the history since that time, she was right.
The situation may have periods of “back on the right track” but it wont be 2012 and it wont be permanent.
Yup, we need to be strong and the struggle will be great, get ready its next year or the next but it is coming.
The election is a year away...lots will happen by that time.
wait until April 15th and people are filing taxes...
obamer IS A ONE~TERMER...
Sorry—not true. Consumer confidence is down and no outcome based gov’t report or poll or eftist university analysis can change that. When I asked for specifics I meant mundane real life things like consumer spending, consumer saving, house starts, new machine orders, factory production increases, shipping increases, unemployment reduction etc. All these real life indicators are down. Hell Onada just killed 20,000 Canada to Louisiana pipeline jobs. And there are over 20,000 pipeline jobs in Alaska awaiting EPA approval. Oh, and lets not forget the Boeing plant near Charleston, SC, Onada is taking to court because SC is a right to work state. Several hundred jobs at stake there.
Don’t know about you, but I don’t see any ray of sunshine in any of that.
Its just a bit anecdotal and its not across the board obviously but the Rasmussen Poll (which is not a "leftist" poll) is reflective of "something".
A UCLA prof gave an interesting talk on the so-called “recovery” on one of Kudlow’s shows this past summer. He had concluded that that the recovery ended in the middle of 2010.
Normally, the economy grows at much higher than normal rates immediately after a recession bottoms out (as happened after March, 2009, when the market decided that there was no longer a systematic risk to our big banks). But, he said that the recovery ended in the middle of 2010, when growth rates diverged below the economic trend line. (by his definition, a recovery means that we are growing faster than “the growth trend line”. )
At the time of this show, the growth rate was 1.5% (Bernanke’s QE-2 had just ended). He predicted that the growth rates would rise to 2.5% (as as it has), but that a true recovery would require growth greater than 5%.
We can’t get there from here IMHO, until we get rid of the EPA and rebuild our manufacturing economy . Until we fix these structural problems, we are not in a recovery and we are not even in a recession. We are in a depression.
Pandering crossing the line into rank stupidity didn't get Kerry elected, and it won't get Bobo re-elected...
2008 was a Perfect Storm. The Amish aren't even going to come out for him like they did in 2008.
Lobotomized Bobo voters aren't going to switch to the GOP, it's that enough of them are going to stay home on Election Day. And we saw just exactly that in VA a week ago!
It would seem to depend on the campaigning skill of the Republican nominee and how vulnerable he is to Cigago style dirt and excrement digging and flinging. These are not quantifiable factors at this stage. But a successful campaigning history in the nominee is the most likely factor to even the odds and even tip them against the One.
At this point, if I was handicapping, Id make Obama 3:2 favorite.
Thanks.. and I agree on those 3:2 odds.
Unfortunately, I’ve been forced to say the same thing for 2-3 months now. Obama will likely win reelection, though he may lose more seats in the House, and may even lose the Senate to the Republicans. But, it won’t really matter — He will merely continue to write executive orders and presidential dictates to circumvent Congress, and the Republicans in charge won’t have the guts to stop him — and there still won’t be quite enough Tea Party Conservatives to force them to.
Indeed, it will get ugly. I don’t see how the Republic survives 4 more years of an Obama Presidency. But, with a weak field of Republican Presidential candidates, this is what we can expect.
Yeah what the heck is happening? 50/50? Are you series?
Yep. Hussein's media is covering for him big time. BIG time.
Solyndra , F and F.....
But Obama is very rarely attacked or never attacked on his nasty actions in the middle-east and in the arab world where he is spreading islamism, like he does inside USA ;
He is rarely attacked on hese fiasco in Afghanistan and Irak where troops are regularly killed.
Hussein is not attacked for his bowing in front of Russia and China.
Hussein is not attacked on his bad role in the european crisis driving UE toward a kind of “liberal tyrany”(that’s what he certainly dreams for USA).
Hussein is quasi never attacked as the big divider undermining the american democracy and using MSM biased tools....
Republicans need a good speaker who could hit Obama badly as he deserves
It will be time to unload soon on the fraud in chief
I don’t see that as true. What I see is that people are getting used to a life that sucks, and the younger ones and lazier ones see Obama as their ticket to free money without effort. And it’s not like there are any jobs out there to put the free market on display as the solution to their problems. If the economy is recovering, it is not remotely with any employment bounce that the average person can see.
Check this out. It’s almost impossible to overcome.
Anytime the fool shuts his mouth and goes into hiding, his numbers go up.
Yes, only 15% more people detest the mention of his name than enthusiastically support him. That’s very menacing.
So let’s see if I have this right. After this astounding “bounce,” we have:
23% who will vote for him regardless
38% who will NOT vote for him regardless
39% who are up for grabs.
Meaning that the GOP nominee will have to get a whopping 30.8% of the “undecideds” to get 50% of the vote.
It will be time to unload soon on the fraud in chief
You hit the nail on the head. Back in 2007 & entirely in 2008, 0dumb0 attacked & bashed Bush non-stop and pretty much ignored the other demoRAT candidates, including Hillary, thereby creating his teflon coating aided & abetted by the media.
GW Bush, in all of his stupefying dullness, sat like a dumb ass turtle on a post, and simply allowed 0dumb0 to pound him daily, in speeches, in the media, on TV, non-stop, and never fought back or responded. Heck, GW Bush probably could have made life miserable for 0dumb0, if he had had the guts & courage & constitutional convictions to openly challenge 0dumb0 on 0dumb0's constitutional qualifications to be president, or to openly challenge 0dumbo on all his sealed records. Since GW Bush was not running, he could have unloaded daily right back at 0dumb0, and for a change used HIS bully pulpit, to strike at 0dumb0 and save our country.
Having said my rant above, I am leaning towards Hermann Cain, but in all honesty, Newt is probably the best spokesperson & articulate & quick on his feet, to start unloading daily at 0dumb0, and to refrain from any attacks on fellow Republicans....unless of course they commit treason & support 0dumb0, like colon Powell or fatso Meghan McCain or any of the Bush women.
We cannot allow the media to maintain 0dumb0's teflon coating. It will take daily attacks on 0dumb0, and if so, I think the narcissistic commie bastard pig will start to crack & fray & snap back, once he is under daily attack.
And one more thing....... NO MORE APOLOGIES by the Repubs!!! Quit apologizing and go after that RAT bastard commie pig 0dumb0 like there is no tomorrow!!!
It is almost impossible to beat a sitting prez...FDR,Reagan and Clinton....I dont see a FDR or Reagan on our side or even a Clinton....Even Bush 2 was reelected...
