New Low For BO… Only 19% Strongly Approve of Obama Presidency

Worst. President. Ever.

Another record!
Obama reached a new low in favorability today.
Rasmussen reported:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 19{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-nine percent (39{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20 (see trends).

Today’s numbers reflect the lowest level of Strong Approval yet recorded for this president. There has been a sharp decline in enthusiasm among liberal voters.

Currently, just 37{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of liberals Strongly Approve of the president’s performance. That’s down from 63{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} a year ago, 57{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} at the beginning of 2011, and 52{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} a week ago. Some liberal commentators have expressed disappointment with the president over the extension of the Bush tax cuts, the military action in Libya, and, most recently, the budget deal to avert a partial shutdown of the federal government. While liberal enthusiasm may be declining, 57{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of voters believe the president is more liberal than they are.

Maybe if you took the economy and foreign policy out of the equation he would poll better. Maybe.
