B'Oz: Three Straight Days at or Below -20 Approval Index

Barack and his Obamaphate (my word for his hapless Administration of corrupt cronies) have sunk to what appears to be two new lows. Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Tracking Poll now shows that Obama has scored a -20 or lower Approval Index for three consecutive days. The Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. By themselves, these numbers indicate a deep slip in confidence in Obama among those of us who are likely to vote come November 2.

What is perhaps more instructive of the public mood is that Obama has just hit a new overall deficit of general approval of his on the job performance.

From Rasmussen Reports:

Overall, 41% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. That’s the lowest level of approval yet recorded for this president. Fifty-eight percent (58%) now disapprove. [That's a -17% overall approval rating]

Seventy-six percent (76%) of Democrats approve of the president’s performance. Eighty-five percent (85%) of Republicans disapprove along with 72% of unaffiliated voters.
