RUT-ROH, Bad News For Obama… Barack Obama’s Approval Rating Mirrors 2010 Midterm Shellacking


From the Weekly Standard, with the 2012 Presidential elections almost upon us, President Barack Obama’s approval ratings look very similar to what they did prior to the 2010 midterm shellacking.  The double digit gap in strong disapprove vs. strongly approve also indicate party enthusiasm as to who will actually show up at the polls election day. With such a negative gap for Obama, it makes such polls with a +9D sampling simply bunk.

For all of the wishful thinking in the mainstream press about President Obama’s positioning 40 days before this election, Obama’s approval rating looks remarkably similar to what it was on this date in 2010 — shortly before his party lost a historic 63 House seats and 6 Senate seats. On September 27, 2010 — exactly two years agoRasmussen Reports showed Obama’s net approval rating among likely voters to be minus-3 percentage points (with 48 percent approving and 51 percent disapproving).  Among those who felt “strongly,” Obama’s net approval rating was minus-14 points (with 27 percent “strongly” approving and 41 percent “strongly” disapproving).
