Obama’s Approval Ratings Have Fallen and They Can’t Get Up, BO’s Hits All Time Low (-12) in Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll & PEW


Barack Obama’s approval ratings have fallen and they can’t get up.

Barack Obama has confused the Presidency with the limbo as he tries to prove just how low he can go. In the most recent Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll for 7/30/09 that measures strongly approve minus strongly disapprove, Obama is at -12. Only 28% of voters now strongly agree with The One, while 40% strongly disagree.

Forty-nine percent (49%) now say that America’s best days have come and gone. Just 38% believe they are still to come. Thirty-four percent (34%) say the country is heading in the right direction.


Trending can be seen here.

What is even more telling is that the total approval/total disapproval is now at 48% to 51%. This represents the lowest total approval rating for Obama since he became President.

It’s not just at the Rasmussen Report that Barack Obama sees his poll numbers in free fall. Across the board The One’s approval ratings have fallen. Whether it’s his overall approval ratings, health care, the economy or the budget deficit, Obama’s poll numbers are down. The Pew Research Center attributes much of Obama’s downward spiral to Obamacare.


Barack Obama’s approval ratings have suffered major declines. The president’s overall job approval number fell from 61% in mid-June to 54% currently. His approval ratings for handling the economy and the federal budget deficit have also fallen sharply, tumbling to 38% and 32%, respectively.

By a 44% to 38% margin, more Americans generally oppose than favor the health care proposals now before Congress. Opposition rises to 56% among people who say they have heard a lot about legislation to overhaul the health care system.

As Wake Up America states, the honeymoon is officially over. We will second that motion. As Macsmind predicted and many of us knew during the Presidential campaign, Barack Obama was in over his head, completely inexperienced, all talk and no action. It would seem that America is finally waking up to the same facts. Sadly, they waiting until after the election to figure this obvious point out.

      Success Threatens to Sink ‘Cash for Clunkers’ Program. That says it all. If the Obama gang would have had a program like this before all the bailouts. We might be in a better place economically today. Of course their is no more money to fund this program. We gave it all to AIG, GM, Chrysler. Reforming health care made Hillary Clinton the laughing stock of the country.
      Now the ONE has decided he can do it. On the back of future generations. I hate to say it. The Chinese are right. PAY DOWN THE DEBT! Turn off the wasteful spending at the capital. Bring our soldiers home! At the end of your turn as president you would be a hero. Not a political Madoff.

      The Cash for Clunkers is the governments way of socializing the automobile industry. They want to control the amount of MPG you can have in your vehicle. Go look on I believe its on the government website to see the qualifications; its mainly based on MPG on your current vehicle. This is just another way of the government spending our taxpayer money. It is such a WORK.

      What are they going to do with all these so-called “clunkers?”

      This is a underhanded approach by the government plain and simple.
