Rasmussen: Obama Sinks to New Low

Before yesterday the Approval Index had never been below -15. Yesterday it dropped to -16. Today he's at -19.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -19.

[...]

The 23% who Strongly Approve matches the lowest level of enthusiasm yet recorded. Just 41% of Democrats Strongly Approve while 69% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove. Among voters not affiliated with either major party, 21% Strongly Approve and 49% Strongly Disapprove.

[...]

Among those who consider fiscal policy issues the most important, just 1% Strongly Approve and 81% Strongly Disapprove.

The President’s Approval Index rating is -2 among voters under 30 and -29 among senior citizens. From an income perspective, the President’s ratings are weakest among those who earn $40,000 to $100,000 annually.

I'm trying to figure out what happened in the last four days to turn off so many more people. The major nets have had all Tiger all the time. The only thing I can think of is the vague connection folks have between the President and the imminent unpopular climate change talks in Copenhagen.

Is it a delayed reaction to the Afghanistan speech?

Is it just Obama fatigue?

Again, it's Slu's. Thanks to commenter YIKES!
