March 17th, 2010 Obama Goes Upside Down in Gallup Tracking Posted by Tom Bevan | Email This | Permalink | Email Author A rather dramatic swing in the Gallup Daily Tracking poll has put President Obama's job rating upside down for the first time, with more Americans now disapproving of job he's doing than approving. According to today's numbers, which represent a rolling average of surveys taken over the past three days, 47% say they disapprove of Obama while 46% approve. That's a net five-point change from yesterday's reading of 48% approve and 44% disapprove, which is a pretty substantial move for a tracking poll. It means the President probably suffered a combination of a good day of polling dropping off the back end of the rolling average while adding a bad day of polling to the front end.

In a three-way generic ballot test, it’s Democrats 34%, Republicans 27%, and the Tea Party at 21%. However, most Tea Party supporters would vote for the Republican if the GOP candidate was the only one with a chance to win.

Thank God Americans have fully woken up to how uber radical this president is. That it has happened within 13 months is shocking...............even to me. Most compelling is, whats going to happen to these polls following the HealthCare debate?? Either way, he drops more the way I see it. If it fails, he loses some of the k00k support. If he wins, he loses more independents who think this bill is a corrupt farce.
