    Obama's Core Approval Levels drop to negative 13

    Still dropping!


    Weds Oct 21, 2009








    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 27% 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 -13. That’s just a point above the lowest level ever recorded for this President. It’s also the sixth straight day in negative double digits, matching the longest such streak (see trends).

    Just 31% of voters believe that Congress has a good understanding of the health care proposal.

    Thirty-nine percent (39%) of Republicans have a favorable opinion of their party’s national chairman, Michael Steele.

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter and Facebook.

    Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.

    The New Jersey Governor’s race remains a toss-up. Over the past week, both Jon Corzine and Chris Christie lost ground while support independent candidate Chris Daggett grew and so did the number of undecideds. Republicans hold a five-point advantage on the Generic Congressional Ballot. In Illinois, the race for Barack Obama’s Senate seat is a toss-up.

    Rasmussen Reports is growing. We’re pleased to report that John Troyan has joined our team as a Sales Manager, Debra Falk is our new Director of Communications, and Alex Napoliello is a new Website Administrator. The talent and experience of our new team members will help us get the public and the media the information they need, when and how they need it, while extending the reach of our brand and our portfolio of services.

    Support for the health care plan proposed by the President and Congressional Democrats is down to 42%. Fifty-four percent (54%) are opposed.

    Scott Rasmussen has recently had three analysis columns published in the Wall Street Journal. The most recent was on health care. Earlier columns were on the President's approval ratings and how Obama won the White House by campaigning like Ronald Reagan. If you'd like Scott Rasmussen to speak at your meeting, retreat, or conference, contact Premiere Speakers Bureau. You can also learn about Scott's favorite place on earth or his time working with hockey legend Gordie Howe.

    It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama's numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That's because some of the President's most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.

    About our Polling

    Rasmussen Reports has been a pioneer in the use of automated telephone polling techniques, but many other firms still utilize their own operator-assisted technology (see methodology).

    Pollster.com founder Mark Blumenthal noted that “independent analyses from the National Council on Public Polls, the American Association for Public Opinion Research, the Pew Research Center, the Wall Street Journal and FiveThirtyEight.com have all shown that the horse-race numbers produced by automated telephone surveys did at least as well as those from conventional live-interviewer surveys in predicting election outcomes.

    Any approval index lower than -10 spells big trouble for Barry's chances of being reelected in 2012. But I wouldn't put it past the pubs to snatch defeat from the jaws of victory. Heck, the Huckster is leading some polls rght now. The pubs better coalesce around a candidate early on that is acceptable to conservatives and/or conservatives better actually do some research on the potential 2012 candidates. That said, I'd take the Huckster over Barry any day of the week and that's sayin' something.
