Here is a snippet.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 32% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-three percent (33%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -1 (see trends). On the Generic Congressional Ballot, Republicans now have a two-point edge.


Americans are evenly divided on the climate change bill passed by the House last week—37% favor it and 41% are opposed. Forty-two percent (42%) believe it will hurt the economy and 19% believe it will help. Most (56%) are not willing to pay more in taxes and utility costs to fight Global Warming.


The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m.

  • Rasmussen is a right slanted poll. That would be like if the Huffington Post started doing polls.

  • rasmussen is not right slanted. They were sourced alot by libs while his numbers where high. They were rated by many sites left and right as the most accurate on the election polls. What a troll anon

  • I don't care for polls. We've never been called one time, and when I was doing surveys for money last year I got bumped from every one I answered republican to.

    I do find it interesting that people only seem to dispute rasmussen when obama's numbers are down. . .

  • Actually, anon, the Rasmussen polls are some of the more middle of the road polls out there. They also have many very in-depth polls, with percentages for 'sub categories', rather than just broad spectrum polls only.

  • And before I get called a right-wing cow of a nut-job by another anon, I should point out that I am far from right wing, far from left wing nut job, and.. heck.. far from nut job. Well.. depending on who you ask, that is..

    The nut jobs on every part of the political spectrum tend to call me a nut job. ;)
