Tag Archives: Obama’s Approval Rating
The following is taken direct from the Rasmussen report.
The president’s Approval Index ratings fell three points in December following two-point declines in both October and November.
Looking back, the president’s honeymoon ended quickly before his ratings stabilized from March through May. They tumbled in June and July as the health care debate began before stabilizing again over the summer. Public attitudes towards the health care legislation have hardened in recent months, with most voters opposed to the work being done in Congress.
The number who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s performance inched up a point to 41% in December. The number who Strongly Approved fell two more points to 26%. That leads to a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15, a new low for Obama.
Other measures of the president’s performance can be found on the Obama by the Numbers page.
Rasmussen Reports also tracks consumer and investor confidence on a daily basis and support for health care reform on a weekly basis. Currently, Republicans have a modest lead on the Generic Congressional Ballot
