    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 30% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-seven percent (37%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –7 (see trends).

    The Rasmussen Consumer Index shows that consumer confidence is down again on Friday. That’s the sixth straight daily decline and confidence is now at the lowest level since mid-March. Just 8% rate the economy as good or excellent while 62% say it’s in poor shape.

    For the second straight month, voters are more likely to trust Republicans than Democrats on the economy. A Rasmussen video report notes that most Americans say the efforts of the G-8 leaders are not likely to help the economy. And, 59% reject the Pope’s call for more international regulation of the economy.

    Later today, Rasmussen Reports will release new polling data on campaign finance reform. Premium Members can get an advance look at the results along with Scott Rasmussen’s Daily Briefing.

    The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates also available on Twitter.

    Overall, 51% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Forty-eight percent (48%) disapprove. The pattern of overall approval leaning in the President’s direction but the number with strong opinions leaning the other way is also reflected in public reaction to health care reform and climate change legislation. For other barometers of the President’s performance, see Obama By the Numbers or review recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.

    This administration is facing its first true test of public dissaproval.

    Dramatic shift against Obama - and an even more dramatic shift against his and the Democrat Congress policies.

    There are several USMB posters who voted for Obama, but don't want to admit it. When you bring up that fact, they become angry and change the subject. You know who you are.

    Tried to include the graph, but, for some reason, the image just wouldn't come up. You know what they say about a picture. ::: sigh :::

    Yeah but given a choice between him and McCain/Palin they'd probably still vote for him. <evil>
