Whatever the cause, Barack Obama's job approval numbers continue to plummet, according to the Daily Presidential Tracking Poll by Rasmussen.
From Rasmussen Reports:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 33% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-five percent (35%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -2. This is the third straight day the Approval Index has been below zero.Read more at Rasmussen Reports
Rasmussen video report notes that 42% now give the President good or excellent marks for handling the economy. That's his lowest rating to date. Thirty-seven percent (37%) say the country is heading in the right direction.
The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.
Overall, 53% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance so far. Forty-six percent (46%) disapprove. During June, there was little change in the party affiliation of the American people and Democrats retain a 7-percentage point advantage.
