Presidential poll numbers continue to fall

The media eagerly reported presidential approval ratings early in 2009 when the numbers were high.

Aides to Mr. Obama have alternately embraced and dismissed presidential polls. When the numbers were good they touted Obama’s approval.

In the last half of 2009, however, Obama backers have been dismissing falling poll numbers much like an apprehensive child whistles while walking past a cemetery at night.

The latest Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that only twenty-five 25% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President.

Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for Mr. Obama.
