Rasmussen reports President Obama’s Presidential Approval Index fell to -3. That is Obama’s lowest rating to date.
The tracking Poll shows that 33% of the nation’s voters strongly approve of Obama’s performance and 36% strongly disapprove. Rasmussen’s Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve.
Those figures reflect the highest level of strong disapproval and the lowest level recorded for the overall Approval Index to date.
Obama’s poll numbers began falling to earth as the Obama Presidency reached the 100-day mark, but slowed after the Presidential Approval Index hit +4.
A new Quinnipiac University poll found Obama’s approval rating also fell below 50 percent in Ohio, a critical swing state. The 49-44 rating is Obama’s lowest approval rating in any national or statewide Quinnipiac University poll since his was inauguration and is down from 62-31 percent in a May 6 Quinnipiac poll.
In the new poll, voters disapprove of the way Obama is handling the economy 48-46 percent. This is down from 57-36 percent in May.
