Sunday, May 03, 2009 | Rasmussen Reports
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Sunday shows that 35% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-two percent (32%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +3 (see trends and recent demographic highlights). The number of people who consider themselves Republicans declined slightly in April while the number of Democrats held steady.
"Obama's overall approval rating among likely voters is 54 percent. His "100 days" press conference and accompanying pageant of media adulation apparently had no impact on voters. It won't be long, I suspect, before Rasmussen's approval index goes negative." -- John, at Powerline
