Obama At 44%

by Pejman Yousefzadeh on December 14, 2009


The President who was supposed to redefine the political environment is now at near record lows in popularity:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday 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.

That’s a one point improvement from yesterday when Obama’s Approval Index rating fell to the lowest level yet recorded. Prior to the past three days, the Approval Index had never fallen below -15 during Obama’s time in office (see trends).

Here’s a novel thought: Let’s stop describing Barack Obama as a popular President.
