The State of Obama

Before we dig into the data, a little background. Rasmussen Reports, an American public opinion polling firm, performs daily automated polling AND has quite a number of skeptics that claim it has "right wing" tendencies (to be fair the 'Total' approval #'s are somewhat in line with the trend shown by the more down the middle Gallup). With that in mind, Prison Planet reports their recent data:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 31% 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 -2. That matches the lowest level yet recorded.

And now the details ...

Higher spending (#1) and taxes (last) + less warfare (#3 / #4) and economic capabilities (second to last). "Obviously"... he is a liberal (#2) after all.
