Obama’s Poll Numbers Are Dropping

July 26, 2009

President Obama was banking that his hour-long prime time talk on Wednesday about health care would boost his poll numbers. He was wrong. He used a lot of words and was very vague. It was very difficult to even understand what he was talking about. You would think that with how important the topic is that he would be as clear as possible. It is no surprise that he has pushed to have the bill approved right away. Obama doesn’t really want the public to know the details of the bill; if we did few would support it.

Here are poll numbers from Rasmussen:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 30% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9.

The number who Strongly Disapprove of the President has increased slightly following the prime time press conference on Wednesday night. That figure—39%–is now at the highest level yet recorded. As a result, the overall Approval Index has fallen to the lowest level yet recorded for this President. …

Overall, 49% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. This is the second straight day that his overall approval rating has been below 50% among Likely Voters nationwide. Fifty-one percent (51%) disapprove. See recent demographic highlights from the Presidential Tracking Poll. For more measures of the President’s performance, see Obama By the Numbers.

These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. More than two-thirds of the interviews for today’s update were completed after the President’s nationally televised press conference on Wednesday night. The first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after the press conference will be released on Sunday.

    Obama’s socialist policies are fast becoming unpopular with Americans who still have common sense. His election can be best described as date rape.The only way the situation can improve is with the removal of him from office as well as Pelosi,Dodd and Frank. Go to the middle class messenger blog and join me in my effort to impeach this jerk.
