Captain Kickass Hits New Low In Rasmussen Poll

Get ready for more of the same as the Recovery-Summer-That-Wasn’t winds down and even more Americans start paying attention to his disastrous, failed policies and constant whining about it being the last guy’s fault.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 23% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-seven percent (47%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -24 (see trends).

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 41% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. Fifty-eight percent (58%) disapprove.

Today’s Approval Index rating is the lowest yet recorded for this president. Overall Job Approval matches the lowest recorded number, and the number who Strongly Disapprove matches the highest yet recorded.

Cracking.

Rasmussen: 56% Oppose United States v. Arizona, 61% Are Down With a Similar Law In Their State

Raaaacists!

Voters by a two-to-one margin oppose the U.S. Justice Department’s decision to challenge the legality of Arizona’s new immigration law in federal court. Sixty-one percent (61%), in fact, favor passage of a law like Arizona’s in their own state, up six points from two months ago.

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that just 28% of voters agree that the Justice Department should challenge the state law. Fifty-six percent (56%) disagree and another 16% are not sure.

These findings are unchanged from late May when the possibility of such a challenge first surfaced in news reports.

Eighty-six percent (86%) of all Likely Voters say the immigration issue is at least somewhat important to how they will vote for Congress this November, with 55% who say it is Very Important.

This is going to be a killer for many Democrats in November, but Barry & Co. couldn’t care less.  They have their eye on 2012 and must pander to the La Raza crowd for turnout and cash.

Rasmussen: Support For Repeal Of ObamaCare Now At All-Time High

Queen Nancy told us rubes that we would have to wait to for her and her fellow Democrats to ram through the “health care” bill to see what is in it.  Now that we have been afforded the opportunity to see what ObamaCare is all about, support for getting rid of it has spiked to an all-time high.

Support for repeal of the new national health care plan has jumped to its highest level ever. A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 63% of U.S. voters now favor repeal of the plan passed by congressional Democrats and signed into law by President Obama in March.

Prior to today, weekly polling had shown support for repeal ranging from 54% to 58%.

Currently, just 32% oppose repeal.

The new findings include 46% who Strongly Favor repeal of the health care bill and 25% who Strongly Oppose it.

While opposition to the bill has remained as consistent since its passage as it was beforehand, this marks the first time that support for repeal has climbed into the 60s. It will be interesting to see whether this marks a brief bounce or indicates a trend of growing opposition.

Remember all of the Obama Zombies promising us that the more we learned about the bill, the more support it would garner?

Epic Fail. Only 25% Have Favorable Opinion Of Arizona Immigration Law Protesters

You see, the average citizen isn’t down with being called a racist for wanting our laws enforced.

Following weekend protests against the new Arizona law cracking down on illegal immigration, support for the Arizona policy remains unchanged.

However, a new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that only 25% have a favorable view of those who marched and protested for immigrant rights in major cities. Fifty percent (50%) hold an unfavorable opinion and another 26% are not sure.

Fifty-nine percent (59%) of voters still favor legislation like Arizona’s that authorizes local police to stop and verify the immigration status of anyone they suspect of being an illegal immigrant. Thirty-two percent (32%) oppose such a law. Those figures are virtually unchanged from a week ago.

The support remains even though 57% of voters are at least somewhat concerned that efforts to identify and deport illegal immigrants will end up violating the civil rights of some U.S. citizens. Forty percent (40%) do not share that concern.

Watch the numbers tank even more as these protests continue.

58% Of Americans Still Support Repeal Of ObamaCare

Not only did Obama’s Spring Revival Tent Tour fail at swaying public opinion…it reaffirmed opposition to his  “health care” law.

Support for repeal of the recently-passed national health care plan remains strong as most voters believe the law will increase the cost of care, hurt quality and push the federal budget deficit even higher.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 58% of likely voters nationwide favor repeal, while 38% are opposed. Those figures are little changed from a week ago and include 47% who Strongly Favor repeal. Twenty-nine percent (29%) Strongly Oppose the repeal effort.

Support for repeal is proving to be just as consistent as opposition to the plan before it was passed into law. Over the past five weeks since Congress passed the measure, support for repeal has remained in a very narrow range from a low of 54% to a high of 58%.

Sixty percent (60%) of voters nationwide believe the new law will increase the federal budget deficit, while just 19% say it will reduce the deficit.

Fifty-seven percent (57%) think the law will increase the cost of health care, while 18% believe it will reduce costs.

Obama’s Numbers Sink To Unprecedented Lows

Unprecedented.

Gallup has Obama’s approval at 49% with 43% disapproving.

Selzer and Company and Rasmussen show a similar downward trend.

President Obama’s approval ratings have hit an all-time low, indicating that the White House faces a tough job as it tries to gather support this week for both a jobs bill and a revised health-care bill.

A new poll from Iowa-based Selzer and Company shows that since November, Obama’s approval rating among Iowa independents dropped sharply from 48 to 38 percent — reaching its lowest level yet.

Similarly, Rasmussen Reports’ latest release of its nightly automated tracking poll yesterday showed that the number of people who “strongly approve” of the president’s performance reached an all-time low of 22 percent, down from a high of 45 at the beginning of his presidency.  At the same time 41 percent “strongly disapprove” of his performance, with remaining voters falling in between.

“Overall the president’s numbers have been between the mid and upper 40s since around Thanksgiving — they tend to get a little lower when health care becomes the primary focus, as it is now,” said Scott Rasmussen, founder of Rasmussen Reports. “The health-care debate has overall captured a lot of people’s frustration … I think people are concerned that the president would like the government to assume an even greater role in the economy than now, and it’s firing up voters.”

Meanwhile, Bam continues to bleed idepependents.   

The new Iowa poll focused how independents feel about Obama.

“This is quite a precipitous drop, there is a loss of confidence — a sense among people that they drank the Kool-Aid, and now there’s a real sense of disappointment,” said Ann Selzer, president of Selzer and Company, which conducted the latest study of Iowa independents.

“His overall job approval rating is at 46 from a high of 68, and has been under 50 percent for some time now. He’d already lost whatever Republican support he had. He is holding onto some Democratic support, there are some people who are still holding out hope, but it’s really the independents who have changed their minds,” continued Selzer. “They’re not tied to any one party, and here in Iowa you are judged not only on what you do but on how what you do is being talked about.”

Otherwise rational thinking people who were swept up in the wave of Hope and Change are coming out of the ether and waking up to reality that they were duped.  You know what emotion almost always follows embarrassment?  Anger.  Not good for Obama.  Not good for Democrats this fall.

Rasmussen: Coakley leads by Two UPDATE: Coakley on Call To Donors: Brown Surge Is “Frightening”

Scroll for updates:

I am starting to think Brown is unstoppable.

Rasmussen Reports, whose poll showing Republican candidate Scott Brown sparked the current round of Democratic panic over the Massachusetts Senate race, is out with a poll showing Democratic candidate Martha Coakley up by only two points. The results, with trends:

Martha Coakley (D) – 49 (-1)
Scott Brown (R) – 47 (+6)

All of that comes after Coakley, roused from what Democrats admit was a fairly lazy campaign, launched new TV ads.

Do you believe in miracles?

Update:  During a private call with DNC chair and heavies, the Ice Queen sounded the alarm.

Happy Hour Roundup via The Patriot Room

* More Dem urgency over Massachusetts. On a private conference call with DNC chair Tim Kaine and top Dem donors this afternoon, Dem Senate candidate Martha Coakley acknowledged that GOPer Scott Brown’s surge was “frightening,” said top Dem donors had been complacent, and promised a last burst of TV ads to close out the race.

“It’s a little frightening how much traction he’s been able to get so quickly,” Coakley said on the call, which I was able to listen in on this afternoon, adding that he’d successfully used terror and joblessness to stoke voter fears.

Coakley also pleaded with donors to come through with last-minute funding for what she said would be an extremely pricey home-stretch. “It’s astounding how expensive this is,” Coakley said, saying additional TV ads are on the way. “We can’t stress enough how urgent it is. We need $400,000 in additional TV, $325,000 in getting out the vote mailings, and $80,000 in robocalls.”

Kaine, for his part, told donors Dem leaders are “cautiously optimistic.”

Martha hit the Panic button.

Rasmussen: 53% Now Oppose Congressional Health Reform

Up eight points since late June.

The health care reform legislation working its way through Congress has lost support over the past month. The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 44% of U.S. voters are at least somewhat in favor of the reform effort while 53% are at least somewhat opposed.

Today’s 44% level of support is down from 46% two weeks ago, and 50% in late June.

Opposition has grown from 45% in late June to 49% two weeks ago and 53% today.

As in earlier surveys, those with strong opinions are more likely to oppose the plan rather than support it. The current numbers: 24% strongly favor and 37% strongly oppose.

Reading further into the numbers is a stat that must have the White House quaking.  60% of Independents are opposed.

There is a huge partisan divide on the health care plan. Sixty-eight percent (68%) of Democrats favor it. However, the plan is opposed by 80% of Republicans and 60% of those not affiliated with either major party.

Rasmussen: only 32% of voters think U.S. is heading in the right direction

Lowest level since February.

Thirty-two percent (32%) of likely voters believe the United States is heading in the right direction, according to the latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey.

While that’s only down two points over the past week, it’s the lowest level found on the question since mid-February.

Sixty-two percent (62%) of voters say the country is moving down the wrong track, up a point from last week and also the highest level since February.

The percentage of voters who believe the country is moving in the right direction spiked at 40% in early May but hovered around 37% through June before slipping to 34% last week.

And only 52% of Democrats think nation is heading in the right direction – down 7 points in one week.

No wonder Barry wants to ram through health care and cap and trade.  People are coming out of the Hope-n-Change ether and are scared to death of what they have awakened to find.

Obama’s numbers continue their downward slide

The presidential approval index now stands at -3%

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 33% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-six percent (36%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of –3.

And about that second bailout being bandied about in recent days?

Just 27% of voters nationwide favor passage of a second economic stimulus package. Sixty percent (60%) are opposed.

Interestingly, Obama’s overall approval number is 52% – an all-time low.  His overall disapproval is 47%. Do those number sound familiar?   Check out the election results from last November.
