According to a recent Rasmussen poll, those who “Strongly Approve” of the president has been dropping steadily since he took office. As of July 10, 2009, those who strongly approve of the job Obama is doing has fallen 7% in almost as many months which brings him close to former President Bush’s all time low – in just six months. Conversely, the percentage of those who “Strongly Disapprove” of the job Obama is doing has steadily risen to nearly 40%. Considering the vast majority Americans oppose the Cap and Tax bill, opposed the Economic Stimulus Pork Bill, oppose Obamacare, this isn’t surprising.
Let’s keep going. According to the latest GALLUP POLL: Obama’s approval rating is now down to an average of 62% for the second quarter of the year. According to Gallup, Obama’s approval rating has been at or below 62% since early June 2009 “with only a couple of exceptions.”
It gets even better. According to Rasmussen, if we held presidential elections today, Obama would be anything but a shoo-in. Obama would be tied with former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney at 45%. If Sarah Palin were the Republican nominee, Obama would edge her out with 48% compared to her 42%. Click HERE to see the Rasmussen article. Seems all those leftist attacks on former Governor Palin haven’t exactly worked very well.
Congressional elections are coming up. Any coincidence that Obamacare is losing support among key Democrats in Congress? I think they are well aware of these numbers and know the dissent is rising. This means there is a good likelihood many Democrats will start losing their jobs next year. Good. Needs to happen. They are obviously not voting the will of the people and not representing us.
One can only imagine what these numbers will be like at the end of 2009 – at the end of 2010 – at the end of 2011 – and 2012 is coming . . .
