  • This is a little more accurate than your posting.... notice the site you posted from has the lowest percentage, lower than even FOX.

    If you look at the fine print in Rasmussen's polling, you'll note that they obtain their numbers from LIKELY voters...not just a demographic group of generic voters. Therefore, their numbers are seen as a far more accurate representative than most of the other polling groups out there. Fox does not make the same claim. That is why their numbers are not as low. But give it time...they'll ALL be saying the same thing soon enough...FAIL!

  • Obama joins the two most recent fellow Democrats (Clinton and Carter) and two recent Republicans (Reagan and Ford) in falling below 50% approval within the first year in office. While his predecessor, Republican George W. Bush, enjoyed high approval ratings throughout his first years, Bush had very low approval numbers by the end of his second term.

    How other president compared. Obama's low approval is due the economy. If it improves by 2012, he'll be a winner.
