Rasmussen Report Poll has Barack “The Chosen One” Obama Below 50% Approval Rating … How Will This Affect Obama Agenda?
How low can he go? Barack Obama for the first time since he became President of the United States has an approval rating below 50%. According to The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll (strongly approve – strongly disapprove), Obama has a -8 Presidential Approval Index rating. However, what is most startling and has to have captured the attention of the White House, Barack Obama’s total approval rating is at 49%.
Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Today marks the first time his overall approval rating has ever fallen below 50% among Likely Voters nationwide. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove.
Eighty-three percent (83%) of Democrats continue to approve of the President’s performance while 80% of Republicans disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major party, 37% offer a positive assessment. The President earns approval from 51% of women and 47% of men.
Americans wanted change, but they certainly did not want what Obama is serving up. Only 25% of voters believe the $787 billion has helped the economy. 53% of voters are against the House health care bill, The President also gets low scores on his handling of health care, the economy and the budget.
Also, only 31% feel that the United States is headed in the right direction, while 63% say the wrong track.. That is down 7% from just a month ago.
With Obama’s poll numbers dipping under 50%, what does that mean for his socialist agenda? What Blue Dog Democrat or anyone for that matter who wants to be reelected would support the Obama agenda that “We the People” do not support? Obama coattails?
There is no reason for any Republican or Blue Dog Democrat to support Obamacare, NONE!!! Not unless they they do not want to be reelected.
