Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
Rasmussen Reports ^ | April11,2011 | Scott Rasmussen

Posted on 04/11/2011 7:01:22 AM PDT by Hojczyk

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 19% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20 (see trends).

Today’s numbers reflect the lowest level of Strong Approval yet recorded for this president. There has been a sharp decline in enthusiasm among liberal voters.

Currently, just 37% of liberals Strongly Approve of the president’s performance. That’s down from 63% a year ago, 57% at the beginning of 2011, and 52% a week ago. Some liberal commentators have expressed disappointment with the president over the extension of the Bush tax cuts, the military action in Libya, and, most recently, the budget deal to avert a partial shutdown of the federal government. While liberal enthusiasm may be declining, 57% of voters believe the president is more liberal than they are.

By a 48% to 37% margin, voters recognize that to significantly cut government spending would require making major changes in National Security, Social Security, and Medicare. Those items make up a majority of all federal spending.

This poll reflects liberals' disgust with the budget deal.

It's plainly evident on all far-left blogs too.

I believe this is the lowest strongly approve (19%) he has ever received. His speech on Wednesday should drive the strongly disapprove up to about 45%-46% by the end of the week. That would give him about -25.

If you take out "white guilt" this guy's popularity will be down the tubes for good by summer. I don't know how he recoups. I don't think he can.

His low in March was 57% disapprove. A little off that mark.

Obama’s approval ratings are so low that Kenyans are claiming he was born in America.

Interestingly enough he dropped below the 23% brain damage factor.

Now even 4% of brain damaged voters him, or, he’s lost 4% of the hard left.

That’s why he’s going on TV (yet again) this week. To try to rally the middle class. He’s going to pump up the union people and the left wing by announcing a tax on the rich. That’s all he’s got left - class warfare.

I’ve learned recently that “class warfare” isn’t a tactic of Marxism, it is inherent in the worldview, it is THE base assumption of Marxism, that the “classes” are inherently at war with one another, even if they don’t recognize it.

I don’t think he can. “

you might be right...one of the questions seems to be, “where will the left go?”

like Bush in 1992 with difficulties on the right, if they go elsewhere, then he is history....

it is not a done deal. but Obama can be defeated.

I don't think you've seen anything yet in terms of gasoline prices or the mid east completely falling apart, which affects gasoline prices.

The economy will be a shambles by 2012. This guy will be toast.

Our problem is that the Republicans are unlikely to nominate anyone worthy of election, so (much like 2008) Obama walks to the election without serious opposition.

You forget, there were leaders in the White House when these attacks occurred. Hussein's first instinct will be to "make sure the first responders get all the help they need". That might not be an exact quote but its close enough. Check out the primary debates 2008.

In a situation like that you need a leader who will say "The perpetrators of this act will pay dearly, and they will pay very soon."

Since the perps of such an act are likely to be Chinese or moslem or Norks, do you actually think that Hussein will make such a speech? What in his performance so far or his DNA makes you think he is up to leadership in such a situation?

Hussein is simply not up to the task. He is not a leader. He is incapable of learning on the job because he knows it all now, he knew it all before he became president.

I don't mean to be argumentative, just asking.

The left is always saying 9/11 was an inside job. Obama and his minions could possibly make another 9/11 an inside job. Say, Late October 2012.

Then, he gets his teleprompter loaded up, says “The perpetrators of this act will pay dearly, and they will pay very soon.” and then, after the election, hits the golf/party/vacation road again.

Press covers for him once more.

I voted for McLame and will vote for whoever runs against Obama in 2012. Sadly, a couple more votes are needed to swing the election.

19% are very satisfied with his job performance. Sky high gas bills, food prices through the roof, unemployment still at record levels. Do these people want the country to go bell up and that is why they think Obama is doing a great job? And what the heck will they do if the economy really tanks? Line up for their food rations?

How can they HONESTLY be upset about 38 billion in cuts out of a 1.6 trillion deficit, are they really that disingenuous?
Its like they took $5 of our lunch money and we agreed to accept back a nickel of it and the bully is unhappy with is $4.95.

As Paul Begala said in 2008...that 19% consists of “egg-heads and African-Americans”.

If this holds, I’ll give him another 25% via clueless idiots out there (Hollywood retards, Manhattan morons, union goons et al) and he’d still lose, 56 to 44%.

Yeah, unfortunately, these falling poll numbers for Obama do NOT mean more people are suddenly realizing the error of their socialist ways - liberals are upset with him because they see him as NOT BEING COMMUNIST ENOUGH, not because they are suddenly growing brains.
