Rasmussen: Obama Approval at 50%
Via Rasmussen: Daily Presidential Tracking Poll:
Overall, 50% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. Forty-nine percent (49%) disapprove.
Of course, if we look at Rasmussen’s “Presdential Approval Index” we see that Obama is at a -7:
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-four percent (34%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7.
To be honest, I find that metric to be an odd one, and not necessarily all that useful.
