    Obama's approval rating is falling: the American people are idiots."

    Does that sound about right? I know I've seen that on a political cartoon before.

    Oh, well, I expect his approval rating will go up and down during his Presidency. It happens to every President.
    Perhaps part of the problem is that he inherited a mess and he just can't please everyone, so depending on the issues being addressed and how he addresses them, ratings will yo-yo.

    Or it's that his programs haven't done the good that he promised.

    Independents thought Obama was a centrist, which is why they voted for him. Now he's governing from the far left and the US is a center-right nation. It's no surprise that he's alienating independents.

    Obama's problem is that he's allowing the radical left to hijack his administration, despite having run on a "centrist" platform.

    There is so much nonsense this guy and his lackeys have pulled in 11 months, it's alarming.

    When the next election cycle comes around, his raging river of idiocies will lend themselves to a non-stop TV series of the dumbest moves made by an American President.

    It makes people long for Carter.

    The fall from cult-hood is a long one, and he is making it at a fairly fast clip.

    Enjoy your 49-53% while it lasts.

    No surprise here. People are beginning to learn the truth and as the media learns that their ratings are suffering from playing a roll in the Obama propaganda machine.

    When the Republican Party left me with the passing of the Patriot Act and the support of some of the Bush policies I like a number of people I know registered as Independent adding to the Conservative numbers in this group. I believe a large number of people who identify themselves as Independent are referring to a state of mind more than the political party because very few people could tell you what the Independent Party Platform is. I would also say the majority of these people also lean to the right of center because a quick review of the platform it is pretty darn close to Conservative for the most part.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12

    Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-one percent (51%) now disapprove.

    I don't really imagine the white house is overly concerned with the approval rating right now. Sure, it's nice for it to be higher, but not really necessary. As far as future elections, the rating at the time of those elections is more important. You can bet Obama will be more concerned in 2012. And really, I think it'll be the economy, and whether the republicans can find a decent candidate, that determines whether he's reelected. If the economy is going good, he's pretty much set. If we're still in a recession at that point or have a high unemployment rate he would have reason to worry. Though, even if the economy is crappy, unless a decent republican is running he'll probably win anyway.

    It is a decent approval rating. It is also overly dramatic to say this is indication that all he's not going to make it through his term. The slip with the independents is the interesting, but expected part.
