Skip to comments.Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll (the Bam at -26)
Posted on 08/23/2011 6:40:06 AM PDT by C210N
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 19% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -26
He had to wait in line? Oh, the horror.
Since we are likely to see more interesting numbers in the near future which will call for you to make similar posts, would you mind adding an abyss category? I believe the worst number was -4 or -5.
How low can we go?
The most under-reported story is that the many GOP candidates is the result of a weak GOP field but to the fact that many sense blood in the water, and know Obama is becoming more beatable with every passing month.
.......And more are coming: Patookie, likely Palin, maybe Christie, maybe Ryan, maybe others.
Done. See Post 71
Worst Abyss was -6.
I will include the Abyss rating in future posts on the Rasmussen poll.
ooops...Meant to say “ NOT the result of a weak GOP field.”
How is the “abyss” calculated?
All these disapprovers must be RACISTS
Thanks, BD. This is hope and ping I can believe in.
But wait. I thought that brilliant photo Drudge posting of Obama slurping ice cream would turn it around. Don’t voters love to see The Won effetely lapping up a heaping helping of vanilla soft swirl?
Yes. Absolute PROOF of the insanity of liberalism.
And now Hurricane Irene is projected to hit Matha’s Vinyard next Monday.
Wasn’t this slated as a 10-day vacation? He’ll have to evacuate if the projection holds up.
Abyss is Total Approve minus Strong Disapprove.
The premise is Total Approve represents the most votes a President can get, and the Strong Disapprove represents those who will come out to specifically vote against the President. A negative Abyss rating generally is seen as certain defeat, because you can't overcome the Strong Disapprovers even if you manage to motivate even your marginal supports to go to the polls.
“I’ve always thought it was redundant to add the numeric form in parentheses after the word form, but maybe not... “
It’s done for emphasis. Like you might say, ‘Obama says he has visited fifty-seven (57!) states’.
It’s just an idiomatic way of saying, ‘Don’t miss this number!’.
To 0b0z0's level.
Reminds me of absolute zer0, -273 Deg. K.
That will make her at least goof for sumtin!
MaRxine, a negative IQ at work.
He has 15 straight days where he is -20 and above! I love it this is the worst he has ever done!!
“19% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve. These folks need to be deprogrammed.”
11.9% of U.S. workers are union members and 12.9% of these members are black:
12.6% of Americans are black:
There’s 234 million adults age 18 or older in the U.S.
So if you add all adult union members who are not black to all adults who are black, you end up with 18.1% of the adult population. These people are simply voting their interests (or their perceived interests). Until blacks wake up and realize just how bad Obamanomics has been for them (http://www.progressive.org/mpford071211.html), the 19% may be an impenetrable floor of Obama support.
'Tis a Thing of Beauty...
Like the late Harvey Martin, former defensive tackle for the Dallas Cowboys said of the Washington Redskins, “never feel sorry for Washington”.
Same applies here. Never feel sorry for Zero. He’s dug his own grave. Now it’s up to us to push him in and throw in the dirt.
“All these people who dont approve of Obama, but will vote for him anyway”
I didn’t approve of Bush because he spent too much money, but I voted for him anyway.
That would make a nice t-shirt
If he ever gets to 51% strongly disapprove, he is as mathematically eliminated as the Cubs usually are on September 1.
I can see if you disagree with her, but no candiate is perfect they have all made mistakes, less we not forget that Palin made some great endorsemets and was a big fotce in the dem onslaught of 2010. I only called you on PDS because you got on a thread that had no realtion to Palin what so ever and you made it about Palin, does she really bother you that much?
Some vexing possibilities that we may have to overcome:
The withdrawing of Obama from the race. (Remember LBJ?)
Obama challenged on the 'Rat side and will not be their nominee (though this not likely).
The entrance of Donald Trump as a third party candidate to split the GOP vote. (Remember Ross Perot?)
The possible nomination of a GOP candidate who, while not quite McCain, may not be very popular among conservatives.
Not being pessimistic here, only realistic.
Hopefully, the Liberal Messiah is imploding. I wonder how he’s doing psychologically.
:: He only knows how to be an uber-liberal ::
I think the real problem becomes when Obamugabe is viewed by the ^uber-libs^ as not “uber” enough and then the ^progessive liberals^ see him as not moderating enough to get the communist ideology in place.
We are a truly divided politic (note, not a divided culture or a divided people)...communist v. (representative republic) constitutionalist.
God help and keep the latter!
“don’t touch that limbo bar/you’ll be limbo star/la la la la la la la...
Aplogies to Chubby Checker
His record SD is 47%, I believe. Combine that with the 19% and we get -28. So -30 is in reach.
Let’s not forget that he’s the head of the party that believes people should vote early and often, and never be required to show picture ID when doing so.
Re: the pic with “freedom go to hell”.
It’s either Bam or Maxine.
Bwahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahahaha! Go nobama...go!
Ha, is that Baskin Robbins?
That was Omoslem’s first “job” in Hawaii, scooping iced cream, wearing a paper hat.
According to “Dreams From My Stalin.”
“Dreams From My Stalin”? LOL!
Yeppers, myself and the other poster had a deal going that when Rasmussen got to -25 we were going to treat ourselves to a Baskin Robbins ice cream cake roll. This is the first time something’s made me glad I don’t live in Hawaii. What if I’d ever had BR ice cream there and had to wonder if Omoslem touched it? Ewwwww. :-)
So true and so critical. Only building a strong local core of conservative activists will turn the tide on statists and collectivists
Thanks for the ping!
“These folks need to be deprogrammed.”
Actually, they need to be “deported”.....permanently.
“Freedom go to Hell” photo.
It’s not Obama. It’s Maxine Waters.
Good point. The GOP has to get much more serious about combating voter fraud in all its various forms.
On his radio show last week, Rush Limbaugh, in response to a caller's question about fraud, skirted the issue by saying that if Republicans can win by a hefty margin, no amount of 'Rat fraud could change the outcome. I would agree that there are practical limits on what fraud can accomplish numerically, so Rush is correct to that extent.
But why should some closer races be allowed to be stolen by their various forms of cheating? I'm afraid that too many in the GOP want to avoid a confrontation on this, fearing that they might be tarred as "racists" by the Dem cheaters.
“19% SA is the historic floor of this poll.”
Gee. Only 19 more points to go and he’ll really be Zero. LOL.
Keep it up Zero!
You can do it!
Now that’s what I call Hope & Change!
unfortunately, his SA went back up to 21 today, and his SD went down to 43.
