    RASMUSSEN POLL: Obama Job Approval Falls to New Low at 44%...

    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.

    Thatís a one point improvement from yesterday when Obamaís 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 Obamaís time in office (see trends).

    As the health care plan struggles in the Senate, public opposition remains stable. Fifty-six percent (56% ) oppose the plan working its way through Congress while just 40% favor it. In Nevada, the health care bill is causing problems for Senate Majority Leader Harry Reidís bid for re-election.

    The will of the people is being ignored here.

    And what does the "will of the people" have to do with anything? The "will of the people" voted in the members of the House and Senate. At that point, the "will of the people" ceases to have any meaning until the next time they get to vote for the members of the House and Senate. It is part of the "representative republic" we call the United States.

    Now if you are saying that we are not represented properly, then I would agree with you. And, typically, one would think the members would pay some attention to what their constituents want, but that is only if you are not cynical enough to say that it is almost a year before the next election and the US people will have forgotten this by then.

    No, but Liberals sure did, and now you are saying that they mean nothing?

    I guess it depends on whom the poll is for eh?

    What's wrong with partisan? Are you saying you aren't?
