President Barack Obama Poll Numbers Sinking like a Stone … Obama get Vote of No Confidence on Economy & Health Care
According to the Rasmussen Report Daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday, 7/26/09, Barack Obama has hit an all time low. The S.S. Titanic, otherwise known in the MSM as the Good Ship Obama is taking on water and sinking fast.
After six short months, America has Obama fatigue and is already tired of his policies. Think voters do not have buyers remorse? It is bad enough that voters question Obama’s handling of the economy, but his latest irresponsible comment regarding race and the arrest by Sgt. James Crowly of the Cambridge police of Harvard professor Gates has certainly opened some Obama voter’s eyes.
Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11. That’s the first time his ratings have reached double digits in negative territory
Only 29% of voters now strongly approve of The One’s job approval, while 40% strongly disagree. Even more damaging to Obama is that his overall approval rating is at 49–50 disapproval.
Why is this troubling and a concern to the Obama White House? Barack Obama beat John McCain in the 2008 Presidential election by a 53% to 46% margin. Check out the exit polls from the election and see if you think that Obama could ever get the Independent vote or any Republican, let alone Conservative vote. Does any one think that Obama could get 49% of voters making over $100,000 when all his plans do is tax them for all of his social programs?
In another Rasmussen poll, 54% of voters still blame George W. Bush for the bad economy, yet Barack Obama’s poll numbers are still sinking. However, as one can see from the overall Obama rating, Americans are sick of the excuse of inheriting a bad economy and look to Obama to man up and fix the mess. After all, that is one of the reason that he was supposedly elected. However, there is a bizarre twist in this poll. The survey found that 39% say the policies of President Barack Obama are to blame for the economy.
However, only 25% of voters believed that the $787 billion stimulus (pokulus plan) has helped the economy. First he claimed that the stimulus had to be passed immediately and it would save jobs and unemployment would never go above 8%. Then the reality set in when it reached 9.5%.Then Joe Biden says, they misread the economy. And it gets worse …
Yet, 53% of voters oppose the Congressional Health care reform known as Obamacare. Obama is getting poor marks on how he is handling health care. Barack Obama also receives terrible marks when it comes to how he is handling the economy, health care and the budget. It would appear that even though the voters might still blame GWB for the economy, they give Obama a vote of no confidence when it comes to being the steward of the economy. Everyone, including Obama, his VP and Cabinet knew what they were inheriting. Voters are tired of the excuses and want results. That is what was promised.
