More Disapprove of Obama than Approve

A new Rasmussen daily Presidential tracking poll shows that more American’s now strongly disapprove of Obama than approve.

Just 32% of those polled “strongly approve” of Obama’s performance in office, while 37% strongly disapprove.  This gives Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –5.  Overall, 48% disapprove of Obama’s performance.   The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.

In the past three months, Obama’s disapproval rating has steadily increased, while those who approve of his performance has steadily declined.  His approval rating has fallen to 52% as of yesterday, down  from 72% just after his inauguration in January. 

Surely last week’s (much) higher than expected job losses, and increase in the unemployment rate to 9.5%, the admission that Obama and Biden had “mis-read” the economy and growing concern over Obama’s mistakes in Iran, North Korea and now Honduras also had an impact. 

The Rasmussen Investor Index saw a huge jump in investor disapproval, with the majority of investors (51%) now strongly disapproving of Obama’s performance stating the economy is getting worse under his inept leadership.

“Change” you can believe in alright.  American’s are finally waking up to the fraud that is the Obama Presidency.  It’s only a matter of time now before the lamestream media realizes that they can’t cover for his ineptness and they actually begin doing their jobs and reporting on his failures.
