    Daily Presidential Tracking Poll


    Sunday, June 21, 2009
    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 32% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-four percent (34%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. Thatís the Presidentís lowest rating to date and the first time the Presidential Approval Index has fallen below zero for Obama (see trends).
    Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats Strongly Approve of the Presidentís performance but only 8% of Republicans share that view. Sixty-one percent (61%) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove.
    So do the Libs think keeping hands off of Iran and North Korea is still the right thing to do? Or is it the economy stupid?

    "Fly-over" country voted, and The Donald is now POTUS. #MAGA

    I just saw the same thing on Gallup:
    Obama Job Approval Slips to 58% for First Time
    It is not clear what's behind the decline, but two issues have received considerable play in the news this week, and could be contributing factors. On Monday, the president received bad news on healthcare reform from the Congressional Budget Office, whose estimate of the cost of one reform plan caused sticker shock on Capitol Hill. This may be feeding into public concerns about the administration's deficit spending. At the same time, the disputed Iranian presidential election has been front-page news. Obama's cautious response has sparked sharp criticism from Republican Sen. John McCain and many on the political right who are eager for him to declare the election a "fraud," and to show more solidarity with the Iranian protestors.
    It has nothing to do with the "Libs", actually. In fact, Democratic support of Obama is increasing. It's everyone else who're moving away:

    It is also worth noting that his approval ratings overall are a bit higher than on individual issues, especially when it comes to fiscal responsibility:
    Obama Rated Highest as Person, Lowest on Deficit, Spending

    The $1.6 trillion health care estimate may be working against his favor... either that, or his long honeymoon is simply starting to come to its natural end.

    Still 53 % overall approve. Numbers are trending down, which is expected. Approval numbers are pretty meaningless until next year, when they will become very important(and probably lower than they are now).
