President Obama's Approval Reaches A New Low

Obama's Approval Index peaked at +30 two days into his administration. By February 17th, the day he signed the CRAPulus Spending bill, he was at +25. One week ago, the Index was +16.

Now Americans are nearly 50/50 on his job performance.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 37% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-one percent (31%) now Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +6, his lowest rating to date.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of Americans now say it’s at least somewhat likely the nation will enter a Depression in the next few years.

Just 45% of Americans now believe that anybody who wants to work can find a job, but most still believe it’s possible for just about anyone to work their way out of poverty.

Thirty-seven percent (37%) say they have postponed medical procedures due to financial pressures.

Twenty-three percent (23%) of voters believe government now represents the will of the people.

Thirty-one percent (31%) of voters now expect their own taxes to go up during the Obama years while 18% expect a tax cut. Seventy-two percent (72%) expect government spending to grow under this Administration.

  1. Really?! That is strange I did not hear that in the biased, water-carrying MSM.

    Gee…I wonder why they are going down. It would not because of Obama’s strong leadership. We haven’t seen that yet!

    I am just guessing but it seems Americans do not like over spending, high taxes, overbearing government regulations, corrupt politicians, weak foreign diplomacy, etc.

    Wow…if this is the change people voted for, they got it in spades!
