    Obama's approval rating at 45%

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 30% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -11
    Somehow, "I told you so" just doesn't cut it.

    This is what happens when your entire resume can be sritten in 18-point type on a single square of toilet paper.....with white space to spare.

    The country has no confidence in this rookie to understand or solve anything.

    No one else has him at that low of an approval rating.

    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

    When you average all the polls, its 51% Approve, 42% Disapprove. Rasmussen has been a consistent outlier.

    Re: Obama's approval rating at 45%

    Rasmussen is biased and a GOP tool, etc.
    No, it's actually the best polling organization out there, here's my evidence, etc.
    It's much better to use the average of all the polls because you get a better number that way.
    Those other polls use "all adults" rather than "likely voters," which results in a distorted sample.
    Rasmussen is still an outlier
    Not really. Zogby International

    President Barack Obama's job approval rating is down to 42%, with a decline in approval from Democrats the leading factor.

    The latest Zogby Interactive poll of 4,518 likely voters conducted from August 28-31 found 48% disapprove and 42% approve of the job Obama is doing.

    Zogby's polls are not even used by major outlets anymore because they have been so inaccurate the last couple of years. He uses only published numbers for his telephone polls and self selected participants for his online polls.

    I think its ridiculous for either side to pick and choose the polls they want. Why not just go to Real Clear Politics and look at the rolling average between all of them.

    Pick a poll and no matter which one you pick, the numbers are going down, fast.

    And another conservative sites Rasmussen. Why am I not surprised.
    It's time for a revolution in our country. Not a revolution forged with guns and bombs but a revolution forged of compassion and altruism. A revolution that extends a hand to those who don't have and who cannot. A revolution that makes Health Care available to all those in the US.

    I bet when Ramussen, Gallop and Zogby were putting GB at 28%, the Libbos were hailing those numbers as the most accurate in history. Now, when things are going against their boy, it's all BS.
