    Which is why having fewer of them is a good thing.

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14 (see trends).
    Just 37% now give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of national security issues. That’s down six points from the week before and the lowest rating yet received on the topic by this president. While liberal voters are overwhelmingly more supportive of the president than moderates or conservatives, liberals give the president slightly higher marks on the economy than on national security. However, among conservative and moderate voters, the opposite is true. They give the president slightly higher marks for national security issues rather than the economy.

    It is simply wrong for commentators to continue to focus on President Barack Obama's high levels of popularity, and to conclude that these are indicative of high levels of public confidence in the work of his administration. Indeed, a detailed look at recent survey data shows that the opposite is most likely true. The American people are coming to express increasingly significant doubts about his initiatives, and most likely support a different agenda and different policies from those that the Obama administration has advanced.

    The numbers you showed are an increase from the previous measuring cycle are they not?

    Doubtful, considering that I and many other liberals disapprove of many things he has done and yet we will still vote for him. Disapproval is not the same thing as "not voting" - many liberals who disapprove of Obama will make that clear.

    Nearly half (47%) of registered voters say they would like to see Barack Obama reelected, while 37% say they would prefer to see a Republican candidate win the 2012 election, according to the survey by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press conducted March 8-14 among 1,525 adults. In April 2003, 48% of registered voters said they would like to see Bush reelected in 2004; 34% said they would prefer to see a Democrat win.
    He's right where Bush was when he was getting ready to be re-elected.

    Will Obama blame Bush when he loses?
