Change: Obama’s approval rating hits new lows in Gallup and Rasmussen

If it had been either of the two, I would have tacked this on as an update to Ed’s Pew post. But both on the same day? He’s down to 52/41 in Gallup and dropping like a stone over the past 10 days thanks to Gatesgate and his health-care clusterfark, and in Rasmussen he’s already below the line at 48/51. And that 48 isn’t real hard, either:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 28% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -12. That’s the lowest rating yet recorded for President Obama.
No wonder he’s ready to drink with Gates and Crowley. If my numbers looked like that while I was trying to push my signature program, I’d be getting hammered too. Fortunately, he’s got an ace up his sleeve he can use to get back in America’s good graces. When the people turn on you, it’s time to give them what they desire above all things: Porn.
