Obama's Approval Index Falls Again... -3 on 7/7/09

Scott Rasmussen's Presidential Daily Tracking Poll shows a possible long term "IN THE RED" trend for BOTUS' numbers.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –3. Those figures reflect the highest level of strong disapproval measured to date and the lowest level recorded for the overall Approval Index.

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.

In another Rasmussen Poll comes news that 60% of polled voters are against a second stimulus bill, while a "whopping" 27% are in favor of such congressional economic tinkering given the monstrous deficits now facing the nation with lack of impact of Stimulus I and the apparent rising voter awareness of what Cap & Trade will do to the economy generally and to each of them individually in terms of dramatically higher energy expenses and potential job losses.

Speaking of Cap & Confiscate, in a separate poll Mr. Rasmussen also reports that:

Fifty-six percent (56%) of Americans say they are not willing to pay more in taxes and utility costs to generate cleaner energy and fight global warming.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey, taken since the climate change bill was passed on Friday, finds that 21% of Americans are willing to pay $100 more per year for cleaner energy and to counter global warming. Only 14% are willing to pay more than that amount.

Fifty-two percent (52%) of all adults say it is more important to keep the cost of energy as low as possible than it is to develop clean, environmentally friendly sources of energy. But 41% disagree and say developing cleaner, greener energy sources is the priority.

Sixty-three percent (63%) rate creating jobs as more important than taking steps to stop global warming. For 22%, stopping global warming is more important.
