Barack Obama at -16 in Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll


Holy Cow Batman …

Who is on the wrong side of history?

President Barack Obama is at -16 in the latest Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking Poll. That represents the lowest rating that The One has ever had in this polling. This represents the 24th day in a polling row that Barack Obama has had a negative double digit Presidential tracking poll. OUCH!!! Only 25% of voters strongly agree with Obama as opposed to 41% who strongly disagree. The poll also shows that total approval to disapproval has dropped to 46% approval, 53% disapprove.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 25% 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 -16. That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President.


The 25% who Strongly Approve matches the lowest level of enthusiasm yet recorded. That’s partly the result of declining enthusiasm among Democrats. While Democrats continue to offer their approval, just 43% Strongly Approve.

Only 36% of all voters believe that Obama is doing a good or an excellent job handling the economy while 45% rate his performance as poor. 71% of Democrats say he’s doing a good or excellent job on the economy while. Interesting that the Democrat number is as low as 71% when it comes to their own candidate. However, 74% of Republicans say The One is doing a poor job with the economy and more importantly for Obama … 52% of affiliated voters give the President poor marks when it comes to the economy.

Now matter where you look, Obama’s poll numbers are sinking in epic Titanic fashion. When you look at the normal bell weather polling groups are Real Clear Politics, Obama is in some serious, serious trouble. We have disregarded polls that are obvious outliers. Obama basically finds himself with a +1 approval rating. As Real Clear Politics states, Obama has dropped under the 50% level and has continued to stay there.

Rasmussen Reports 12/9 – 12/11 46 53 -7
Gallup 12/7 – 12/11 50 44 +6
FOX News 12/8 – 12/9 50 44 +6
Marist 12/2 – 12/7 46 44 +2
Ipsos/McClatchy 12/3 – 12/6 49 49 Tie
Quinnipiac 12/1 – 12/6 46 44 +2
CNN/Opinion Research 12/2 – 12/3 48 50 -2

Why is Obama and the Democrat party in so much trouble? They refuse, out right refuse to listen to the overwhelming majority and mandate of the PEOPLE against Obamacare and the government take over of the health care system. Real Clear Politics has the healthcare RCP AVG at 37.8% approve to 52.7 oppose or a +14.9% oppose. However, if one only looks at the most recent December polling trends the numbers are even worse … only 37.3% approve while 55.3% oppose or a +18 oppose. The more “We the People” learn of Obamacare and see what Democrats look to ram down our throats, the more Americans oppose Obamacare.

We have to ask the obligatory question … who is on the wrong side of history? How could any President or political party so ignore the will of the People and treat them with such disdane? The 2010 elections look to be a political tsunami that has not ever been seen.

      This ‘Brilliant Bulb’ is flickering badly. I suggest
      we impose the ‘no confidence vote’ and change
      the thing out before it leaves us completely in
      the dark!

      too bad that people voted popularity instead of really wanting a real president. the supposed first black president turns out to be the sixth mixed race president. all the hoopla over skincolor and a few shallow promises along with some popularity got them something they can’t return. the crying has already begun not even a year into his run.

      In a previous journal, Red just wrote a great phrase: “…liberals ram it down our throats in a last ditch effort before they lose all power as if they were suicide bombers.” When you do your book, include that good one.

      As the terroists lose favor, in part it’s due to insulting the intelligence of the public. They rename their terrorist bill/act and feed it again to us. Or twist the wording a bit and Reed it back to us with more lube…same ole crime, just more slippery.

      I think even one-time liberals can see the insult.

      My little toddler granddaughter (mumm I love her), you hide some food item in a spoonful, sneeking it into her mouth? From then on she pulls the heaps off each spoonful to see what you are hiding next. Trust is gone. Polling plummets.

      I’m makin’ a list and checkin’ it twice to see just who
      is naughty or nice. On this list, I cannot find a single
      positive accomplishment by this Obama guy. What
      he can deliver is: Confiscatory Taxes on everything,
      Government Control (his version) on everyone, FUD
      (fear, uncertainty, and doubt), and Lies on top of
      Lies. We should not have to fear our out of control
      employees. We should be heard and represented.
      Let’s figure out how that may be accomplished!

      Funny, your poll is the only one showing Obama doing so badly out of a dozen polls. That tells me that your poll is invalid.
      SM: Dude, put the crack pipe down. You might want to take some reading comprehension classes to while you are at it.

      Every Poll, Rasmussen, Zogby, Gallup, CNN, Fox News, USA Today, Quinnipiac, PEW, … has Obama’s poll numbers tanking badly. The Rasmussen poll sighted is a Presidential Index, not a standard job approval, READ!

      However, I will bet you any day of the week and take Rasmussen’s #’s over any other poll. He is the best in the business and has a track record beyond reproach.

      The MSM polls have been artificially inflating the samplings, however, even now as they know the handwriting on the wall … these polls are starting to reflect more of the countries mood.

      Obama is going down like a sweet muffin.

      Troll, even Gallup (that conservative poll) has Obama at one year as the lowest ranked President ever in job approval. DUH, get a clue and buy a vowel.

      Obama … The Chosen One will be One and DONE!!!

      Here is how Obama has deceived people: completely false promises to lower 95% of Americans’ taxes; millions of dollars spent to deceive the American people with the assistance the mainstream media. Look at czars who he has running OUR GOVERNMENT.They are FAR to left. When wiil Americans wake up ? Obama never even managed a taco stsnd. Why do you believe this professor ,community activist, could be a successfull president of greatest nation on earth?
