Rasmussen Reports: B'Oz Hits All New Low of -22 Approval Index - Graveyard Spiral?

Barack Obama's dream of creating a permanent Obamaphate may well be in what pilots call a graveyard spiral.

BOTUS' mounting problems with his formerly fawning press lapdogs on his administration's dilatory and incompetent handling of the BP Gulf spill and his refusal to hold any Pressers; a very serious allegation by Democrat PA Senate Candidate Joe Sestak that an as yet unidentified person in the White House (widely speculated to be Rahm Emanuel) offered him a job in exchange for dropping out of the primary race against Arlen Specter which if true, and Obama knew of the offer, would almost certainly constitute an impeachable offense; and finally, reports of his apparent demeanor and conduct in a business luncheon meeting with Congressional Republicans all seem to be coming to a head. Today, Rasmussen reports that the public's enthrallment appears to have been broken.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22. That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for this president (see trends).

Enthusiasm for the president among Democrats, which bounced following passage of the health care law, has faded again. Just 48% of those in the president’s party now Strongly Approve of Obama’s performance. That’s down from 65% earlier.


Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Fifty-five percent (56%) disapprove.


  1. 23% Approve of barack hussein obama and his regime???

    I guess you CAN fool some of the people all of the time.

  2. There's talk of a "war or a crisis" in order to boost the population's support for Dear Leader...

    ...But such a strategy requires something upon which to peg faith. This administration and congress have zero. Even his cronies have to be considering which support groups get screwed when the funds stop flowing. So no, a war or a crisis will actually backfire.

    Which leads to an observation of Michael Ledeen's (from Macchiaveli methinks): The most dangerous position for a leader is to have the contempt of the lead. We're there.

  3. @LL - A wise man did say it could be done.

    @Ran - I agree, except among the moneyed elites and the bamboozled left, Democrat Credibility is swirling the bowl low now.
