Oh My… Barack Obama's Approval Index Plunges After Health Care Rammed Through Senate

Barack Obama’s Approval Index number plunged yesterday after Harry Reid bribed democrats some $1.2 billion to ram nationalized health care through the senate.

Rasmussen reported:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 25{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-six percent (46{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 That’s the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).

Fifty-three percent (53{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) of men Strongly Disapprove along with 39{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of women. Most African-American voters (58{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) Strongly Approve while most white voters (53{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) Strongly Disapprove.

Seventy-four percent (74{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove as do 52{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} of unaffiliated voters. Forty-seven percent (47{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) of Democrats Strongly Approve.

For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55{a60dec675160a2e6a5acd013715a29e36a19eec043ef8a9979ad47849a192b7b} ) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.
