Obama's total approval rating will go far lower than the current miserable 42%. Just wait for all his idiotic spending and new taxes to kick-in. What a pathetic president...on all fronts.

Using your methods I say his approval ratings are up to 52%.

Rasmussen is as useful as a Foxnews.com poll.

Wrong again.

Take a look at the various dates and the pollsters.

Poll Finds Americans Pessimistic, Dissatisfied with Washington - Political Hotsheet - CBS News

Around the same dates;

Quote:
FOX News 5/4 - 5/5 900 RV 48 43 +5
Rasmussen Reports 4/30 - 5/2 1500 LV 48 51 -3
Gallup 4/30 - 5/2 1547 A 47 47 Tie
Quote:
Gallup 4/1 - 4/3 1547 A 48 46 +2
Rasmussen Reports 4/1 - 4/3 1500 LV 46 53 -7
CBS News 3/29 - 4/1 858 A 44 41 +3
USA Today/Gallup 3/26 - 3/28 1033 A 47 50 -3
Marist 3/25 - 3/29 860 RV 46 43 +3
notice CBS and Marist were even lower than Rasmussen.

CBS & Marist do not push leaners, notice the disapproval was MUCH lower with CBS & Marist and the overall net approval from Rasmussen has pretty much always been lower for Obama than every other pollster, and was pretty much always higher for Bush than any other pollster.

SanFranNan and the rest said we'd have milk and honey by now.

Where are the jobs? All 3M which were supposed to have been created by now?

I see more people are waking up to the horrid health insurance bill, too.
