President Obama is managing to irritate his base while simultaneously failing to appeal to opponents.
The new low came among those who Strongly Approve of the President’s performance, mostly hard-left progressives.
Obama’s inability or aversion to making decisions is not helping his standing with voters.
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 19% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-nine percent (39%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20 (see trends).
Today’s numbers reflect the lowest level of Strong Approval yet recorded for this president. There has been a sharp decline in enthusiasm among liberal voters.
Sixty-one percent (61%) believe that enforcing immigration laws would reduce poverty.
Most voters continue to favor repeal of last year’s new health care law.
