Strong Disapproval of Obama Has Eclipsed His Peak Strong Approval

Data Source:

Rasmussen: Obama Approval Index History

Number of days when Obama’s “STRONG APPROVAL” was >= 45%:

2 days. (1 day in each of his first 2 weeks in office at 45%)

Number of days when Obama’s “STRONG DISAPPROVAL” was >= 45%:

21 days

(6 of which have come in the last 7 days…
2 days at 45%, 2 days at 46%, and 2 days at 47% strong disapproval.

The other 15 days of >= 45% strong disapproval are spread out from as far back as 12/22/2009)

Obama’s current STRONG DISAPPROVAL now exceeds what his
STRONG APPROVAL was at its very peak.

And I don’t think that today’s press conference is going to help him.

    Obama and Congress was warned. But they chose not to listen…

    November 2, 2010 they will watch this come true…

    Has anyone began amassing clips from his government healthcare speeches where he repeatedly claimed that it would lower costs over the long run?

    It would be a nice contrast to his most recent press conference where he said, “Of course the healthcare costs are going to rise under the new plan. That’s what happens when you expand the coverage to more people.”

  3. Yes,

    “Of course the healthcare costs are going to rise under the new plan. That’s what happens when you expand the coverage to more people.”

    Obamacare not only expands coverage to more people (which raises costs for employers, who will then pass on those higher costs to employees and/or customers) but also creates massive amounts of new governmental bureaucracy. Of course the healthcare costs are going to rise under Obamacare.

    Anyone who actually believed Obama’s and Pelosi’s lies (that it would bend the cost curve downward) was an idiot. Here’s to hoping that their eyes have now been opened.

    I pray that Republicans take back both the House and the Senate, and quickly vote on a simple, 1-page bill that repeals/revokes/reverses/nullifies the so-called “Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act”.

    Send that to Obama’s desk. Sure, he’ll veto it, but it will officially make “The Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act” his, since it would only continue to exist because of his veto.

    Then, reconsider it in the Congress and bring it back up for a vote to override the veto. I doubt that we would get 2/3 of each house, but it’s possible that after the tsunami of the 2010 elections, some “moderate” Democrats would no longer want to support Obamacare. We certainly won’t have 67 Republicans in the Senate, but we may get all of the Republicans and enough Democrats to reach 67. A great opportunity for bipartisanship to help our country.

    From Article 1 Section 7:

    Every Bill which shall have passed the House of Representatives and the Senate, shall, before it become a Law, be presented to the President of the United States; If he approve he shall sign it, but if not he shall return it, with his Objections to that House in which it shall have originated, who shall enter the Objections at large on their Journal, and proceed to reconsider it. If after such Reconsideration two thirds of that House shall agree to pass the Bill, it shall be sent, together with the Objections, to the other House, by which it shall likewise be reconsidered, and if approved by two thirds of that House, it shall become a Law. But in all such Cases the Votes of both Houses shall be determined by Yeas and Nays, and the Names of the Persons voting for and against the Bill shall be entered on the Journal of each House respectively. If any Bill shall not be returned by the President within ten Days (Sundays excepted) after it shall have been presented to him, the Same shall be a Law, in like Manner as if he had signed it, unless the Congress by their Adjournment prevent its Return, in which Case it shall not be a Law.

    Even if we don’t get 2/3 of each house, we will put every Democrat Representative and Senator on record as to whether or not they still support Obamacare. That will be helpful come 2012. Voters will remember. And after the 2010 elections, Senators and Representatives will know that the voters will remember.
