Well that didn’t take very long, in January 2009 Rasmussen reported In the final full month of his Presidency, just 13% of American adults said they Strongly Approved of the way that George W. Bush performed his job as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapproved.
This morning, the same Rasmussen Presidential Tracking Poll reported that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove of his performance. (I wonder if that means he will start blaming everything on Obama).
His presidential Approval Index is back down to his all time low rating of -21.
These numbers follow the same pattern as we have seen during the past year. Every time the Progressive Democrats make a big push for Obamacare his job approval ratings tank.
Also particularly interesting, is the fact that the number one priority of voters is deficit reduction, but voters feel it is the least likely objective that Obama will be able to achieve.
Another element of Obama’s strategy that voters object to is the recent announcement to stop building the boarder fence, 59% say the U.S. should continue To build fence on the U.S.-Mexico border.
Yesterday Rasmussen reported that Congress is in even bigger trouble than the POTUS, especially as every house member is running for reelection in a little more than 7 months. According to the report, 50% of voters are less likely to vote for a Member of Congress who supports Obamacare, 56% of voters nationwide are opposed to reducing Medicare spending as a means covering the costs of the health care plans.
The Democrats can claim that they are ruling with the American People in mind, but Rasmussen as well as almost every other national polling organization, proves that claim to be totally disconnected to the will of the voters.
