Obama approval rating at 43%: Rasmussen

posted at 10:12 am on March 10, 2010 by Ed Morrissey

Barack Obama hits the campaign trail again this month in support of a tremendously unpopular ObamaCare bill — and his numbers have started nose-diving again.  Rasmussen’s latest daily poll shows Obama now at 43% approval, with 56% disapproving, the lowest figures of his presidency.  His “passion index” has once again hit its lowest level at -21, as less than a quarter of registered voters now strongly approve of his performance:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 22% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21. That matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).

Forty-two percent (42%) of Democrats Strongly Approve while 72% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major political party, 17% Strongly Approve and 45% Strongly Disapprove. …

Overall, 43% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President’s performance. That, too matches the lowest level yet recorded for this President. Fifty-six percent (56%) disapprove.

So far, this hard pivot to the economy has worked out well for Obama, hasn’t it?  Three months ago, the White House had accurately diagnosed the political problem for Obama’s slide in the polls.  Obama and the Democrats had spent most of the year haggling over a progressive hobby horse while American unemployment skyrocketed.  They pledged to backburner the ObamaCare effort and start focusing on jobs, but they only turned out a wan $15 billion package that won’t stimulate any new job creation at all.

Now, Obama wants to double down and force ObamaCare through when he should be starting from scratch.  He’s filling every available moment with his campaign, sucking all of the oxygen out of job-creation efforts, while his pet project only gets less popular by the day.  Small wonder that only 22% of the electorate has strong approval of his performance.

It took George Bush almost six years to get to this level of job approval.  Obama’s managed it in 14 months.  That’s change no one can believe in, apparently.

I thought the antidote to hate speech was more free speech. Heaven forbid we should have to scroll past paragraphs and paragraphs of words we already know by heart, and yet we ignore because they don’t EXACTLY match our feelings.

As one of the unfriendly long winded posters here, I’m afraid that banning long winded comments would be unseemly and most unwise. I know Allah doesn’t like my attitude sometimes and others get called on the carpet as well. I know folks scroll past long comments because they don’t feel like reading all that.

But just because a subject cannot be adequately addressed in a 30 second soundbite or a three line snarky post doesn’t mean it has no value and should be ignored or banned. That throws the baby out with the bath water.

The Truth isn’t always found in the one liner or comedians would be the great philosophers of record and antiquity. Unseen’s post is neither irrelevant, nor inconsistent with the viewpoints you all have here. Just because Sarah said it better than the rest of us doesn’t mean we shouldn’t pay attention to the words and the entire speech.

Because that is EXACTLY how the American people voted the least qualified presidential candidate into the Presidency in November 2008. By not listening to, or ignoring the words which were readily available, in massive quantities, to explain just what a Liar, Thief, and Charlatan, the current occupant of the White House is.

Don’t mean to be difficult about this. I’m just old and have different manners and opinions on this. You’re not wrong. I just think you live too fast if you would rather disregard longer winded pieces. After all, many masterpieces were written in long winded novels.

It took George Bush almost six years to get to this level of job approval. Obama’s managed it in 14 months

I still cannot believe the Pres is sending out a second bogus jobs bill

Search the web to get details on the new bill and it is hard to find

States would get 24.7 billion Medicaid, 2.3 billion to NY, 700 million to NYC and counties in NY

payroll tax exemptions for 60 day hires (in Michigan, it
takes 90 days to qualify for unemployment)

Highway project continuation

What jobs are in this bill? It is another State local prop up, a little more unemployment, and a temptation to hire temps

We are pouring tax dollars to prop up state and local payrolls, when it would be cheaper to pay unemployment to the same workers. The subsidies have to end and when they end the workers will be umemployed anyway. Money down the drain

How much more money can Obama print before he has to raise interest to borrow? The bums in DC deserve the low approval

I never thought I would see a worse president in my lifetime after coming of age in Carter’s presidency. Carter almost has an excuse, he was too nice of a man to be president and managed to get himself all wee wee’d up over the hostage crisis instead of handling it with a firm, swift respoinse.

However, Carter never came across to me, THEN, as someone who didn’t believe in America’s greatness. He has gone toxic that way since as he has cozied up to every one of America’s enemies abroad.

Carter was an UNMITIGATED DISASTER as an economic president. My age group graduated from college while he was president and faced 10-15% unemployement, 15+% inflation and 18% mortgages. And I remember sitting in an economic class when the idiot Kaynes theory professor was telling us we could not have inflaction and high unemployment at the same time. DUDE!!!! open your eyes to what was around you at the time.

Next year, we will see the inflation catch up to Carter years, as we are monetizing our debt. I am doing everything I can to get in prevention mode, including getting a 4.125% 15 year loan locked in. I haven’t figure out how to protect my savings from the inflation, but at least the mortgage will be secure from disaster. I don’t think gold is the answer right now, and the stock market is not the answer right now. SO we just all need to hunker down, vote out this Congressional leadership and be the party of NO until we can get this MAN CHILD out of the White House.

Rush has him pegged correctly, he is a MAN CHILD and is showing a temper tantrum over getting his way with health care. He is a horrible person and a worst president.

HI KARENHASFREEDOM–12:58. Good comments on Jimmy Carter. It made me feel ashamed to watch our country being led by such a clueless clown. The president’s first job is to protect our country and it’s citizens. Compare the Israeli approach to the Entebbe airport hostage crisis to how Carter “handled” it.
***
One week for the Israelis to figure out a plan that would work. Another week to rehearse the plan. Let the diplomats talk up a storm–at two weeks–with no change or help by the “international community”–hit them hard, kill the terrorists, free the hostages and bring them home.
***
More than a year for Jimmy Carter to do anything–in response to an act of war. And then come up with a half-assed “rescue” that failed miserably. The U.S. Navy could have embargoed the Iranian oil shipments and sunk their ships. The U.S. Air Force could have bombed their refineries, ports, bridges, railroads, etc. and weakened them while they were fighting Saddam Hussein in the contested oil field areas. President Teddy Roosevelt or Ronald Reagan would have solved the problem in a few weeks. And if hostages were killed–Hiroshima time!
***
But things are far worse now than when Carter was president. Comrade Obama (PBUH) does apology tours, uses Neville Chamberlain “diplomacy”, and trashes our economy. And He is warming up the SHAMNESTY and C(R)AP AND TAX disasters now–as He raises taxes and kills business.

Good points. The tax-free municipal bond used to be the safe haven in times like this. My parents bought my husband and I one for our wedding in 1987 that paid 7%. You used to be able to count on interest going up when inflation hit, including on the tax-frees, short-term CDs, and Money Market accounts.

I don’t know if this will happen this time around. And I wouldn’t have a good feeling about trusting any State or Local government’s “credit rating” on tax-frees. S&P and Moody’s didn’t do so well on rating those credit default swaps . . . (rolls eyes).

One issue was left unaddressed. There actually are some people out there who are still on dialup. I know two who have given up on blogs that tend to numerous and/or long comments on interesting threads because the refresh rate made it all too tedious.

I was on a slow dialup on old land lines like everyone else in this immediate area, until other, but expensive, options became available less than a year ago. Some days following blogs was a chore, but the only source of actual, truthful news and opinions.

Just something to consider as a courtesy to them.

The problem with that rule that lefties fail to grasp is that after a certain period of time your enemies that are left standing are battle tested veterans that will usally be the creme of the crop and they will counter attack and destroy you because your side is worn out anf used to offense and not defense.

A good general always leaves his enemy a way out so that they will flee when the battle goes against them instead of cutting off all retreat so they must make a last stand.

Last stands are the worse for both sides as Obama is finding out today

When he hits 39% look out America.I believe he will come unglued.I hope to God i,m wrong but i fear for our country and what this man might try to do.

It took George Bush almost six years to get to this level of job approval. Obama’s managed it in 14 months.

B+

LOL! I love it. What an effin FAILURE this leftist turd is!

Ernie- tell us how this is meaningless.

Actually, I think his Quixotic pursuit of a health care takeover is the best thing that we could hope for in terms of economic policy. Think about it, would you rather have the Donkeys spending night and day (and zillions more of our dollars) trying to “create or save” more jobs?

Not just no, but hell no! As long as health scare doesn’t pass (and I still doubt it ever will) then we get the benefit of these idiots not “helping” us in other, more destructive ways.

43% approval rating? In a year, the Democrats will be begging Hillary to run against Obama in the primaries.

Roxeanne de Luca on March 10, 2010 at 9:05 PM

He screwed up his oath of office, and it’s been downhill ever since. Has he done anything right the first time??

Sorry, it will be too late. I believe that the majority have had their fill. If the Democrats continue they will no longer be trusted on a national level.

30′s by the midterms, for sure.

Awesome.

I’m no Obama apologist. It was Roberts that effed that up.

We need the Bobs to come in and ask: “What is it that you do here?

It just goes to show that 43% of the country is really dumb.Not even Obama’s direct descendants will benefit from the Banana Republic he is creating.

MaiDee on March 11, 2010 at 5:35 AM

I just don’t get it. Why do we spend so much time critizing each other over LENGHTS OF COMMENT? Damn man!

Obama’s approval is falling. Why?

I will tell you why. The American people were asleep. This man told us want he wanted to do and no one would believe him.

He said.
I will cause energy cost to skyrocket.
I will bankrupt energy companies.
I will take over health care.
I will nationlize banks.
I will have Fedaral union leaders in my white house.
I will not allow competion in education.
I will redistribute the wealth.

The list goes on but what I will say is that the American populace is waking from a sleep.

It’s impolite
It’s ineffective.
It puts HA at risk of being sued over copyright infringement
It robs the other site of ad revenue

MarkTheGreat on March 11, 2010 at 10:16 AM

You don’t understand….his approval numbers with the main stream media are still in the stratosphere. Having the hearts and minds of the media in your pocket is almost as good as having the vote counters in your pocket.
