Those Who STRONGLY DISAPPROVE of Obama Now Equal His TOTAL approval

From Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll:

Saturday, February 27, 2010

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 22% 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 -21. That matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for President Obama.

The only other time the Approval Index was this low came in late December as the U.S. Senate prepared to approve its version of health care reform (see trends). Most voters continue to oppose the proposed health care plan.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That is the lowest level of total approval yet measured for this President. Fifty-five percent (55%) disapprove. The President earns approval from 76% of Democrats while 86% of Republicans disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 38% approve and 61% disapprove. The President earns approval from 37% of men and 49% of women.

Put it this way: there are now as many Americans who rabidly hate Obama’s guts as there are people who think he’s at least sort of okay.  Twice as many utterly despise him as continue to love him.  And that trend has been getting worse and worse for Obama.  As it should.

What is interesting is that the previous two days, Obama’s approval has dropped from the day before.  Which means that his approval has gone down since – and as a result of – his useless health care summit.  It appears that the American people understand that Obama’s effort was nothing but an incredibly cynical attempt to use what he deceitfully labeled a “bipartisan” summit to accomplish his very partisan goal of demagoguing Republicans as obstructionists with no ideas.

As another fact to consider, this poll ties Obama’s worse poll ever.  And what was the other occasion?  When Democrats used bribes and kickbacks to ram their health care boondoggle through Congress on Christmas eve.  Which is to say that there can be no question that the American people have nothing but contempt for the Democrats health care system.

    I know what you’re saying, Patrick.

    I’ve been arguing that Obama was an inexperienced, incompetent, ideologue fool from practically the get-go.

    And even I didn’t ever think it would be this bad under the leadership of the Turd-in-Chief.

    May he go down, down, down in infamy!

  4. Michael Eden Says:

    It’s almost impossible to imagine how awful Democrats truly are until they get total power.

  5. Michael Eden Says:

    It’s interesting that Nancy Pelosi says her terrible ObamaCare is “bipartisan” on the one hand, but recognizes that it is so extremist that moderates in her own party will lose their careers on the other.
