Daily Presidential Tracking Poll (-17 worst approval index since September 26, 2012)
Rasmussen ^ | May 22, 2013

Posted on 05/22/2013 7:02:54 AM PDT by BulletBobCo

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 46% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) now disapprove.

Today’s figures include 24% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 41% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -17 (see trends). This is the worst approval index since September 26, 2012.

This is the second day in a row - but only the fourth day in the past six months - that Strong Disapproval of the president has reached 40%. The other two days were May 2 and 3.

It no loner matters much, not with Obama in power over us for almost four more years. Still, it’s nice to know that the truth is filtering out and having some effect.

I forget Bernie Goldberg's exact words but he mentioned a Cal-Berkeley student questioned recently and that yoot couldn't name Biden as the VP. Goldberg said something akin to “that is the exact type of person who Obama needs to succeed...” The clueless dolt.

Uh oh. MSM will be switching back to default ObamaMode = “love” status immediately.

AP phone bugging will be going into the memory hole.

Imagine that! Worst approval rating since Sep 2012. Right before he won the election.

Yet he still beat Romney in all the swing states ~ 5 weeks later.

In hindsight Obama’s biggest mistake may have been in who he chose as victims. Average Joes in the Tea Party and AP reporters.

If he had unleashed the unbridled fury and power of the Federal Government upon EEEEEEEVIL banks and insurance companies, his approval numbers would likely be through the stratosphere.

Yeah, funny that despite the high disapproval ratings, 0bama swept Ohio, Wisconsin, Pennsylvania and Florida, all those “swing states.” What a remarkable run of luck. /s/

RE :”Oh and Rasmussen numbers were so accurate during presidential cycle. Like I believe any drivel he is spouting.”

Well Rasm supported many here who wanted to believe that Romney was doing great no matter what and were happy with a single poll source showing that. BOOM. Rush too.

When the MSM and those Sunday morning talk shows start and keep repeating themes about Obama’s approval polls taking a dive then we will know he is hurting.
Also when he is tied up with questions on these, if he even takes questions.

Funny how the election results matched most poll results yet some here still claim they are not real.

I recall lots of hand wringing and moaning and cursing here about all the polls showing Romney losing(which most did), like this guy who is usually wrong :

“The enthusiasm that got people out in 2010, I'm seeing at every Mitt Romney rally. Romney's drawing crowds of 20,000, 25,000, 30,000, 15,000. “The enthusiasm that we all saw in 2010 is there.

Don't forget the intercession of Hurricane Sandy and the fortuitous CinC photo ops that came with it. Exit polls showed many voters were swayed by those images (yes, low-info Ameritards, but still a factor).

Agree, And Chris Christie plugs too...

Romney appeared to do OK in the first debate as Obama didnt act motivated but then the last two critical debates Obama beat the crap out of him and Romney just stood there with that stupid looking grin.

Romney gave Obama a complete pass on Benghazi the last debate and I still remember that Obama punch line ‘. ..because the modern military has these new things called submarines and airplanes..’ drawing much laughs (best line in those debates and well delivered too) while Mitt just stood there smiling looking stupid, 'Duhhh, cant I pay someone else to do this for me?'.

All this shows is that Obama and the MSM did a great job of covering up last fall to win the election. If it all hangs out now, who cares? Its not like we’re going to re-do the election.

Funny thing is and most seem to miss it. The polls before 47% were Obama up 4. Then 47%, 1st debate, hurricane and what ended up happening? Yep 4 points. My opinion, for what it is worth, the electorate was stable as hell and the election die was cast by Aug.

Not according to all the other polls done. The questions asked show it is straight down party lines.

The thing that can be easily missed by polls is real enthusiasm. We have those who will NEVER vote GOP, and those who will never vote Dem, then we got a minority in those who would really vote for either with todays parties and environment.

I think the GOP was much better at helping Dems turn out those who would never vote GOP than vice versa.

The 47% comments certainly helped in that it reaffirmed the stereo-type that Dems (and Newt before them) had created of Romney.

And the GOP had lots of other problems, a total f-up.

But things are in the works to make 2014 the flip side of 2012, flip everything above 180 degrees.

Just a negative “bump” in the road. The drones will forget in a few months.
