Obama Approval Plunges To New Low Of 46% According To CBS Poll

I remember a couple of years back when Republicans dismissed the polls.  Now it’s Democrats who not only dismiss the polls, but demonize them as rightwing bogeymen.

It is human nature to hate and fear that which we do not understand.  And liberals hate and fear reality.

Rasmussen has had Obama well under 50% for some time – and has been routinely attacked as a result.  Rasmussen – alone among polling organizations, polls every single day, and only polls likely voters.  As a result, they have been ahead of the other polling organizations.

But what do liberals say now that CBS has Obama at the same sub-turd level?

Do they start drawing demon horns on Katie Couric?

Obama’s Approval Rating Dips to New Low

Posted by Kevin Hechtkopf


President Obama’s job approval rating has fallen to 46 percent, according to a new CBS News poll.

That rating is Mr. Obama’s lowest yet in CBS News polling, and the poll marks the first time his approval rating has fallen below the 50 percent mark. Forty-one percent now say they disapprove of Mr. Obama’s performance as president.

In last month’s CBS News poll, 50 percent of Americans approved of how the president was handling his job, while thirty-nine percent disapproved.

Analysis: The Irony Behind Obama’s Poll Numbers

Mr. Obama still receives strong support from Democrats (eight in ten approve of his performance), but his approval rating among Republicans is only 13 percent. More importantly, Mr. Obama’s approval rating among independents has declined 10 points in recent months – and it now stands at just 42 percent.

Versus Rasmussen:

Monday, January 11, 2010

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15 (see trends).

Just 17% believe that the cost of health care will go down if Congress passes the health care legislation it’s considering. The latest weekly tracking shows that 40% favor the health care plan and 55% are opposed.

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

Overall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-two percent (52%) disapprove.

Sorry if I disappoint anybody by saying that I’m with the majority of Americans who disapproves of Obama, and am in the solid plurality of Americans who STRONGLY DISAPPROVES of Obama.

41% of Americans strongly disapprove of our idiot-in-chief, versus only 26% who think Obama is doing really a good job.

    I’m with you. I strongly disapprove! I have since before the election.

  2. Michael Eden Says:

    They talk about “birthers” and “tea baggers” and I’m sure there are a few other ones. We’re a couple of the “strong disapprovers.”
