NO BOUNCE for Obama Following Death of Osama Bin Laden

No Osama bounce for Obama–

Despite the best efforts by an adoring media there was no improvement in the president’s overall approval rating following the death of Osama Bin Laden.
Rasmussen reported:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 26{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-six percent (36{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -10 (see trends).

Overall, 49{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322} of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. Fifty percent (50{c18972fae7bad54fccba2a5109f73c6e4ffe73508739d7249e14c4c49d351322}) disapprove.

Daily updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. As a result, two-thirds of the interviews for today’s update were conducted before news was released about the death of Osama bin Laden. Thursday will be the first update based entirely upon interviews conducted after that event. Results from the single night of data collected on Monday shows a modest improvement in the president’s Approval Index rating. However, there was no improvement in the president’s overall approval rating. Caution should always be used when interpreting a single night sample from a tracking poll.
