On Saturday, just before the Senate’s middle of the Sunday night/Monday Morning  vote on Obamacare , Rasmussen was reporting the Presidents approval index (the difference between those who strongly approve of the way he handles his job and those who strongly disprove) had made a slight comeback from its low of -19 and was resting at -14. Of course that was just before we learned that Ben Nelson changed from pro-Life to pro-Choice and Democrats had cloture.

In the three days since the Democrats attained the 60 needed for cloture the president’s approval index dropped by 50%, today Rasmussen is reporting Obama is at  a record -21. Forty-six percent of voters Strongly Disapprove of Obama and only 25% approve The -21 is  lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for Obama. The 46% strong disapproval is also a record.

Fifty-three percent (53%) of men Strongly Disapprove along with 39% of women. Most African-American voters (58%) Strongly Approve while most white voters (53%) Strongly Disapprove.

Almost three quarters of Republicans Strongly Disapprove  (74%) of the POTUS and more importantly is the 52% of independents who strongly believe he is doing a bad job. With-in the President’s own party, only 47% of Democrats Strongly Approve.

For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President.

Overall, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. Fifty-six percent (56%) now disapprove.

Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Democrats approve while 88% of Republicans and 62% of unaffiliated voters disapprove. 

This past Sunday Presidential adviser David Axelrod said that he did not believe that, the public’s objections to Obama’s policies would signal a bad 2010 election year for the POTUS.  Looking at these numbers, I humbly suggest he reevaluate his stance.  Obamacare will be the death of the Democratic Party in 2010.
