Obama Approval Rating Free Falls Since Release of Budget

President Obama's Approval Rating Index is down to a +8, his lowest rating ever. (The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. )

Obama was as high as +30 two days after his historic inauguration.

Since release of the President’s budget, the number of Republicans who Strongly Disapprove has grown to 57%. That’s up fourteen percentage points since Thursday morning. Only 8% of Democrats share such a negative assessment.
Voters believe cutting the Federal deficit to be the most important goal, but also view this as the least likely to be achieved (so does the ConservativeXpress).
Only 51% of American think it's a good idea to raise taxes on individuals making over $250,000.
73% of Americans trust their own fiscal judgement over the governments. Why any of these people would ever vote for a Socialist Spend-ocrat escapes me right now.
Gallup Polls show a similar trend for Obama's approval.
It's becoming clear that Obama's spending problem is not popular with Americans.
Hopefully they keep this in mind when they go the polls in 2010.

  1. Pure crap. Rasmussen is a Republican pollster. Plus take a look how he tries to skew positive data by only including "Strongly approves" as opposed to all approval categories, and then say these are negative numbers. This is an old slime ball trick of shady research firms. All other truly independent pollsters show this similar "index" at about +20. Don't be fooled.

    Rasmussen and Fox are in bed together and trying to do all they can to ruin the Obama presidency. Add Rush to this rogue trifecta, and you pretty much have hit rock bottom. No matter. The Republicans are imploding cuddling up to the likes of Rush. The best thing that could happen to the Democrats for the mid-terms is that Rush and Fox keep opening up their big mouths and verbalizing their desire to see Obama fail. 60 Senate votes here we come. . .! And then bi-partisanship be damned. The 2010 mid-terms have the potential to make history--for picking up more seats for the party holding the White House than ever before. Have a nice time down south, Republicans. . .
