    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -16 (see trends). That’s the president’s lowest rating in over a month.

    Matchups between President Obama and GOP hopefuls shift along with the president’s Job Approval ratings. As a result, with the president’s overall approval ratings down six points since Valentine’s Day, the general election polling is looking weaker for the incumbent. It remains to be seen, of course, if this is merely statistical noise or a lasting change signaling that the president’s recent bounce in the polls has come to an end.

    For the first time since late December 2011, Mitt Romney leads the president in a hypothetical 2012 matchup. Romney earns 45% of the vote, while the president attracts support from 43%. Romney holds a nine-point advantage among unaffiliated voters.

    For the first time ever, Texas Congressman Ron Paul also leads the president. In that matchup, 43% prefer Paul and 41% Obama. Ten percent (10%) would vote for some other option, a figure that includes 17% of Republicans.

    Is this BEFORE or AFTER the media report on his dead-fetus hugging exploits?

    Is the election more than two weeks away?

    Hmm, appears to be, yes.

    That means any poll by Rasmussen should be ignored. In late October he'll be in get-it-right mode and deserve our attention. Until then -- nothing to see here.

    I'm expecting Obama's legacy to almost mirror Bush's in every way.

    He'll win the re-election despite bad approval ratings and a bad economy, solely because he's the incumbent.

    In the last 1-2 years of his presidency, even the hardcore card-carrying, talking-point parroting democrat will start to jump ship because the economy will still be floundering and our warmongering will still be going on. Most likely somewhere new also, maybe Iran, maybe Syria, after Libya who knows who our next victim will be.

    Oh, so his fetus hugging activities have been reported on say, the evening news?

    Oh, I know, they were a featured story on FOX NEWS, right?

    Oh, the STORY itself is YEARS old.
    It just hasn't been told.

    You know why Santorum lost his Senate seat by an 18 % margin a few years back?
    The fetus story.

    Don't worry, independent voters eat this sort of extreme stuff UP!
    THEY LOVE IT!
