For three days in a row - Friday, Saturday and today - Rasmussen's Obama Approval Index has held steady at (-22)
A president’s Job Approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection. Typically, the president’s Job Approval rating on Election Day will be close to the share of the vote he receives.
Currently, 44% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) at least somewhat disapprove.
... 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22 (see trends).
- 63 pct believe U.S. society is fair and decent, but only 22 pct believe our government has "the consent of the governed."
- Only 29 pct say the country is heading in the right direction (down from 31 last week) and 45 pct say America's best days are in the past.
- 63 pct of consumers and 59 pct of investors say the U.S. is still in a recession.
- The Rasmussen Consumer Index, which measures consumer confidence on a daily basis, dropped two more points on Sunday to 80.2 (the lowest point since January) -- that's down five points from a week ago, down ten points from a month ago, and down 11 points from three months ago.
- As of June 14th, 50 pct of Likely Voters trust(ed) Romney more to handle the economy, while 42 pct trust(ed) the president.
And we all say, OUCH: In 2008, 80 pct of U.S. homeowners said their homes were worth MORE than when they had bought them. That's now dropped to only 48 pct :'(
