Rasmussen: Obama approval at 44%Topics: Political News and commentaries
Rasmussen has Dear Leader at only forty four percent approval overall, and -18 on the passion index. And as bad as his voter approval is, voter disapproval of his health care bill is even worse:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18 ...As for voter's approval of Obama's health care legislation, its even deeper in the tank:
Following passage of health care, enthusiasm for the president among Democrats soared. Today, however, just 49% of Democrats Strongly Approve of Obama's performance. That's down from a high of 65%. It remains to be seen whether this is a temporary aberration or the beginning of a lasting change.
[...] Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Fifty-four percent (55%) disapprove. The Rasmussen Reports Media Meter shows that media coverage of the President has been 51% positive over the past week.
Sixty-three percent (63%) of voters nationwide favor repeal of the health care law. That's the highest level of support for repeal yet measured.This last bit of data is worth repeating: 63% of America's voters favor repeal of Obamacare - the highest level of support for repeal yet. More succinctly put, support for repeal has grown, not declined, since passage - the exact opposite of what Obama said would happen.
