Rasmussen: Approval bounce from SOTU is over

The daily presidential tracking poll is back to normal this morning after Obama received a bounce from the his SOTU address.


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-one percent (41%) Strongly Disapprove which Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. That matches the President's ratings just before the State-of-the-Union Address. While Obama received a modest bounce in his ratings following the speech, today's results suggest that the bounce is over
One could attribute the drop to a number of causes, but this data point is telling:
The American people overwhelmingly reject the basics of Keynesian economics: only 11% believe more deficit spending is needed to spur the economy while 70% say deficit cutting is the answer.
Yet with even with such data available, House majority whip Clyburn (D-SC) still thinks "We've got to spend our way out of this recession, and I think most economists know that." I was tempted to write unbelievable but such willful ignorance is now so common place it is sadly all too believable. So in (belated) birthday tribute to President Ronald Reagan, I'll just say there you go again.

You'll notice that with eac... (Below threshold)

You'll notice that with each new speech now, his bounce numbers are both lower and don't last as long. It's almost like people are starting to figure Barry out.

All show. No go.

Jim Clyburn is a very nice ... (Below threshold)
Jim Addison:

Jim Clyburn is a very nice man who was an undistinguished small-time preacher serving in the SC legislature. During the 1990 redistricting, black Democrats joined Republicans in carving out a special "minority" district which follows I-95 nearly the full length of the state. The GOP's thinking was to give themselves 4 safe districts, and probably a fifth when Spratt retired (bad idea, since that moron is still there), in exchange for one safe minority seat.

Clyburn won the new seat, and has never been seriously challenged, despite the fact his only accomplishments were getting reelected and getting excellent jobs for relatives and friends. He has no particular economic knowledge, but was quoting Paul Krugman in the above statement, I bet.

Barry lies but the approval... (Below threshold)

Barry lies but the approval numbers dont fudge. Also, the lower He goes the more rabid blaming of Bush becomes from the left. Sad to say Hillary would have been a much more competent failure.
