    Exclamation Obama approval rating slipping badly

    Rasmussen Reports: The Most Comprehensive Public Opinion Data Anywhere
    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll
    Tuesday, June 30, 2009 Email to a Friend ShareThisAdvertisementThe Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 31% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-three percent (33%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. That matches the lowest level yet recorded (see trends).

    Over the past two weeks, the Presidential Approval Index has stayed in a narrow range between +2 and -2. Fifty-seven percent (57%) of Democrats Strongly Approve while 60% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove.

    Fifty percent (50%) favor passage of the health care reform proposal being crafted by Obama and Congressional Democrats. Forty-five percent (45%) are opposed.

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

    Overall, 54% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance so far. Forty-six percent (46%) disapprove. Eighteen percent (18%) say that Congress is doing a good or an excellent job.

    In Massachusetts, the 2010 Governor’s race is currently a toss-up.

    As the Fourth of July approaches, 82% of American adults would rather live in the USA rather than anywhere else in the world. Most Americans (54%) believe the United States is truly a nation of liberty and justice for all.

    Just 26% of Massachusetts voters rate that state’s health care reform a success while 37% say it’s been a failure. Only 10% say it’s improved the quality of health care.

    Forty-two percent (42%) say that Obama’s response to the situation in Iran has been about right while 40% believe he should be more aggressive. Forty-nine percent (49%) say there’s no way to know who really won that country’s disputed election and another 20% are not sure.

    When comparing Job Approval data from different firms, it’s important to keep in mind that polls of likely voters and polls of all adults will typically and consistently yield different results. In the case of President Obama, polls by all firms measuring all adults typically show significantly higher approval ratings than polls of likely voters. Polls of registered voters typically fall in the middle. Other factors are also important to consider when comparing Job Approval ratings from different polling firms.

    A Fordham University professor has rated the national pollsters on their record in Election 2008. We also have provided a summary of our results for your review.

    Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The margin of sampling error—for the full sample of 1,500 Likely Voters--is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Results are also compiled on a full-week basis and crosstabs for full-week results are available for Premium Members.

    Like all polling firms, Rasmussen Reports weights its data to reflect the population at large (see methodology). Among other targets, Rasmussen Reports weights data by political party affiliation using a dynamic weighting process. While partisan affiliation is generally quite stable over time, there are a fair number of people who waver between allegiance to a particular party or independent status. Over the past four years, the number of Democrats in the country has increased while the number of Republicans has decreased.

    Our baseline targets are established based upon separate survey interviews with a sample of adults nationwide completed during the preceding three months (a total of 45,000 interviews) and targets are updated monthly. Currently, the baseline targets for the adult population are 40.1% Democrats, 33.1% Republicans , and 26.7% unaffiliated. Likely voter samples typically show a slightly smaller advantage for the Democrats.

    A review of last week’s key polls is posted each Saturday morning. Other stats on Obama are updated daily on the Rasmussen Reports Obama By the Numbers page. We also invite you to review other recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.

    Anyone Who Voted for Obama

    Please give us a sensible reason why. And if so, do you still think Obama is good for this country? And why?

    Good!! Perhaps all the idiots that voted for him are beginning to see the light. Unfortunately there are still plenty of unintelligent people out there that still believe he is the "messiah"... He is nothing more than a doggone pinko communist pig!! If we are all lucky, he will be found ineligible and will be impeached. Hopefully indicted and prosecuted for high treason along with all his cronies!

    You know all I hear is well.....this is who we voted for. Well let me tell you that I DID NOT vote for him. I hope as well that he would get impeached but this needs to happen NOW. The problem is that they all are very good at being magicians and hiding all the real facts from us. I'm sick of it!!!!!!!!!!!!!
