The day after US president Barack Obama addressed the nation on the BP oil disaster in the Gulf, his approval ratings fell to a new low:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20...

Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. That’s the lowest level of approval yet recorded for this president. Fifty-seven percent (57%) now disapprove. Those are the lowest ratings yet recorded for this president. Read more...

Could these numbers foreshadow the swiftest public fall from grace of any sitting U.S. president in history?

    :lol: They don't seem to be asking the ppl that really like him. 42% is not bad. When/if he dips in the 30% am I too be worried? No because he will still be Our President. :lol:

    42% huh, I swear I do not remember anyone polling me. Sounds like some people just making up numbers to show THEIR dislike of the president.

    In a nation of 300 million people, they poll 1,200 people and say they speak for ALL Americans.

    Poll and survey numbers vary depending who conducted it and who was polled. So I don't give much credence to approval rating such as this.

    who cares because at the end of the day Obama is still 'their' puppet by choice.

    None of these political figures and entertainers and Religious heads want to die for what is right.

  • SouthernPrincess

    I've never been called to participate in a presidental approval poll...but i would like to know what are some suggestions as to what people think he should do, what are their expectations

    You are correct. The President is actually doing well in the polls with everyone except for working class white males. This was just on CNN like 2 or 3 days ago. What hell is Sandra talking about with these crazy as FOX news related polls? Sigh.

    obama doesn't strip, isn't a d-list fashion blogger, rapper, or event planner, nor is he a felon with a gun collection. why should we expect SR to give him props?
