President Obama’s approval index as monitored by Rasmussen Reports is currently at -21. That’s negative 21. The index measures the difference between those who strongly approve, and those who strongly disapprove of the president’s performance.
I normally do not write much about the president’s poll numbers on a day-to-day basis, but I’m going to start monitoring results more frequently wondering if the media will define Obama’s first year in office as one of the worst evah. Hat tip to Jim Hoft over at Gateway Pundit. From today’s Rasmussen Reports…
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).
So how about Congress? Real Clear Politics has the average approval index (difference between approved and disapprove) as -38. That’s negative 38. I’m not exactly certain why their approval ratings approved in late spring, but they have been going down hill since then. Click to enlarge.
