Gallup, Rasmussen, and Fox News Polls Have President's Approval Under 50% as Well
For the last few weeks, I have been closely monitoring the Presidential Approval Rating of Barack Obama. In that time, I have noted the times when he fell below fifty percent by at least three polling sources. Yet, I have recieved numerous complaints saying that my sources are "biased," and that the President's approval rating is much higher than what they were showing.
Now, the facts are in.
CNN now tracks the President's approval at 48%. Regardless of the fact that Fox News, Gallup, and Rasmussen confirm that Mr. Obama's approval is under 50%, CNN's poll can speak for itself. It cannot be argued that CNN has it out for the President, that they want him to fail, that they are biased against him. Using the logic of those who stated that we cannot use the numbers of Rasmussen or Fox, I will only use CNN's:
Our President's Approval is at 48% and his Disapproval is at 50%. In other words, more people disapprove of how the President is handling his job than those who approve.
The Honeymoon is officially over. The facts cannot be denied.
