Barack Hussein Obama may be on vacation and playing golf while an attempted terrorist effort was thwarted by a airline passenger and faulty detonator, but his Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Index is still terrible at -16%. For the 36th polling day in a row, Barack Hussein Obama has a negative double digit index.
Many Americans now look at Obama’s government interference and take over as the problem, not the solution. More people now than ever think that Obama’s $787 billion stimulus plan hurt the economy, not helped it. This should do wonders for Obama’s approval ratings when unemployment remains steady and the economy continues to flounder. Obamacare has also hurt The One beyond words.
Thirty-eight percent (38%) now believe the economic stimulus plan passed earlier this year has hurt the economy. Just 30% believe it helped. That’s the first time since the legislation passed that a plurality offered a negative assessment.
Most voters (52%) are concerned that the government will do too much in terms of responding to the economic challenges. Just 35% fear it will not do enough.
Wait until the poll for blaming the poor economy becomes owned by Obama, rather than Bush … watch the approval ratings sink even further. No matter how you look at it the 2010 and 2012 elections do not bode well for Obama or Democrats.
