    I saw Obama on TV today the poor fellow is looking pooped...

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15 (see trends).

    Too bad Obama only needs 20% approval to beat the crap out of whatever stiff the GOP picks to run

    I remember someone predicting that P-BO would never go below 30% approval because no president before has. I think he's working hard towards that. Regardless, after 2010, he's going to have no political power left with approval ratings dropping so low.

    Yes no political power when you lead the party that controls Congress and the White House, are the leader of the free world and have an opposition party that has approval ratings in the 20s

    When he loses Congress... which is all but inevitable now, he gets nothing done. Happened to Bill Clinton too.

    What makes you think he will lose Congress?

    What if God is punishing this country and we are doomed to 70 years of Democratic Control aka The Deepest Pits of Hell?

    Country won't survive 70 years of socialist/fascist rule. It will fall apart into civil war in 10 or less.

    The fascist rule (corporate state partnership) was during the Bush years. The outsourcing of the Iraqi war to Halliburton is a primary, but certainly not the only, example. The fascists in my party were defeated last year. And the American electorate is certainly not going to vote them in next year based on what the blow hards have not done: bunch of pathetic tea whiners. Good golly, Miss Holly.

    Fitz, I told you were ignorant, and you proved it above yet again.

    I love watching 0bama's poll numbers sink. I have to admit right now it is meaningless. As noted above, his party controls congress. I do think Pelosi and Reid are getting tired of him though. He doesn't seem to do much except talk, and that is getting old. The two of them are doing all the leading, and poor Harry Reid is leading with his chin.

    So for next year, will his opinions really matter that much, really? is congress going to distance themselves from him except as a false face for their needs?

    As of right now, I don't see these numbers meaning anything substantive. People who masturbate to them are wasting their time.

    No president has gone below 30 percent? Bush spend most of his last two years in office under 30 percent.
