Obama Presidential Approval Index slips to -3 (updated)
The public's disenchantment with Barack Obama continues to rise. Rasmussen reports:
33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -3.
Tomorrow (Wednesday) will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted since last week's report showing higher than expected job losses in June.
Just 27% of voters nationwide favor passage of a second economic stimulus package. Sixty percent (60%) are opposed.Fifty-four percent (54%) say the average Democrat in Congress is more liberal than they are, while 36% believe the average Republican congressman is more conservative.
Update - GeneSchwimmer writes:
Obama's overall approval rating fell to 52%, a new low for him and only three points away from below 50% territory.
For Rasmussen's three-day average to be -3, at least one day's individual polling must have been even less than that. If that lower day is the last day comprising the average, it could be significant.
