    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 30% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -9 (see trends).

    Fifty-six percent (56%) of Democrats Strongly Approve while 70% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove. As for those not affiliated with either major party, 22% Strongly Approve and 40% Strongly Disapprove. See other recent demographic highlights from the tracking polls.

    No doubt Lebuick will be along shortly to tell you that Obama is falling in the polls because he is not being liberal enough and that he is abandoning the left.

    Oh yeah - and you are fear mongering.

    LeBuick will parrot the Party's talking points. He'll insist that Obama is doing great considering. . .

    When his approval ratings are high, he's doing great. When they're low, he's doing even better. He's always doing great even when he's failing.

    Nobody who voted for him should disapprove. They made their bed, now sleep in it.

    Interesting, given that another recent poll showed that 49% of Americans view the town hall protesters in a favorable light.

    All they need to do is to admit they made a mistake

    I have seen you make this statement before and I just have to ask.

    Is the reason that you did not vote for Obama because you were not old enough to vote?

    Is there anything you disapprove that BO has done, or have you agreed with him 100% of the time

    At this point would vote for him next election.

    And while we are at it, why did you NOT for him in '08

    Obama's polls now are like the pre-season polls. Remember the older Bush... his ratings were the highest after Desert Storm, which was a few months too early; for then voters turned to domestic issues and an economy getting worse and his ratings fell, costing him re-elction. It's the last 6 months or so of the BO's term that will determine if he gets another.

    I don't agree with anyone 100%. I wish President Obama was more decisive and did not always attempt to include those who are bent on his failure.

    It depends who is running against him, but I will probably vote for him in 2012.

    Texas is a red state, so it did not matter who I voted for. I have always liked McCain and I thought he was treated unfairly by Bush in 2000.

    The main reason I even voted was not because of the president's office. I was interested in several local elections more. Had it not been for this, I may not have voted at all.

    Naw, why take away your only ray of sun in an otherwise tumultuous time for the GOP.

    But do believe his numbers will go up once he signs the public option into law... :thumbsup:
