President Barack Obama Back to -17% in Rasmussen Presidential Tacking Poll


That did not take long … President Barack Hussein Obama already back at -17% in the Daily Rasmussen Presidential Tracking poll. The Chosen One just got a lesson in political physics, what goes up from a less than truthful State of the Union speech, must come down when reality sets in.


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 26% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove which gives Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17 (see trends).

Following the Obama’s SOTU speech on January 27, 2010 his Rasmussen Daily Presidential tacking poll numbers actually went under  negative double digits for the first time since November 14, 2009. Much of that change was due to Democrats changing their position, not Republicans or Independents. However, it did not take long for The Chosen One to have his poll number jump right back to where it was prior to the SOTU.

Is it any wonder why Obama’s poll numbers are back into the the low double digit negatives …

With the 2010 midterm elections just 9 months away, the elections will be a referendum on Barack Obama and with his present poll numbers, that cannot be a good thing for Democrats. Let alone his own reelection bid in 2012.

      I love this, Obama lecturing us on over-spending:

      “These deficits won’t just burden our kids and our grandkids decades from now, they could damage our markets now, they could drive up our interest rates now. They could jeopardize our recovery right now. Responsible families don’t do their budgets the way the federal government does. When times are tough, you tighten your belts, you don’t go buying a boat when you can barely pay your mortgage, you don’t blow a bunch of cash on Vegas when you’re trying to save for college. You prioritize, you make tough choices. It’s time your government did the same.”

      This guy isn’t dealing with reality, lecturing us on spending when he has run the debt up… could he be mentally ill? Has a president ever been removed from office for mental illness? What would be the protocol in such a case???

      President Barack Obama says one thing while he is doing the opposite.
      Trying to rewrite history over his HUGE mistakes.

      What happened to “getting it right on day one?” Prez Obamass has been wrong, and to make it worse he will not correct himself.

      He should CHANGE his name to Obummer what a HOPE-less idiot. What did we do to America? It will take years to undo this clowns antics. My Grandkids will be paying the rest of their lives.
      Throw in Biden and Hillary and you have the Three Stooges. FAIL!! And Congress, what a waste of flesh. I mean Reps as well as Dems. We need America to start over and go back to square one.
