President Barack Obama ends the 2009 year at -18 in the Rasmussen Daily Presidential Tracking poll. For the 40th polling day in a roll, Obama finds himself with a negative double digit Daily Presidential tracking poll index. That is 46% negative swing from when The One first took office.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -18 (see trends). Twenty-nine percent (29%) now say the country is heading in the right direction.
According to Rasmussen Reports, Obama presently has a 46% approve, 53% disapproval rating. On January 21, 2009 Barack Hussen Obama had a 65% approval, 30% disapproval rating. My what a difference a year makes. Actually, what a difference not focusing on the economy and jobs makes as well as pushing such unpopular legislation like Obamacare makes.
In the end as Obamacare is near passage and about to be inflicted upon the American People, 58% of voters oppose the bill while only 39% approve. Who would ever pass such a bill against the will of the people with such opposition like this? As can be seen HERE, the more people learned of the health care bill, the more WE THE PEOPLE opposed it.
52% of Americans fear that they will have to change their insurance under Obamacare and 78% of Americans believe that Obamacare will cost more than what Democrats are saying. Imagine that, a government social program that costs more than proposed.
It is obvious, as seen by the graph at Real Clear Politics, that Obama’s approval ratings are sinking fast. With final passage of Obamacare on the horizon in 2010 and such unpopular legislation like Cap & Trade, Immigration reform and the spectre of Obama not leading on terrorism … Barack Obama and Democrats numbers might just go even lower. Of course there is the main issue on the table … JOBS!!!
