Rasmussen: Obama Approval At 46%

Can we say Carter redux yet?

Yes we can!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 30% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -10 (see trends). Republicans have opened a six-point lead on the Generic Congressional Ballot.

Sixty percent (60%) say that the Fort Hood shootings should be investigated by the military as a terrorist act. Just 27% prefer a criminal investigation by civilian authorities.

This Veterans Day, 81% of Americans have a favorable opinion of the U.S. military. Thirty-six percent (36%) had a close friend or relative who gave their life for our country. A Rasmussen video report notes that 69% say that military service is good for young people.

Overall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-three percent (53%) disapprove.

In other news, Gallup shows the so-called generic ballot with a GOP edge for 2010 with registered voters preferring Republicans for the House, 48% to 44%.

i'd interpret these numbers a little differently than ff and/or the rasmussen guy.
i'd say what they tell me is that 30% of our population is communist.
46% of our population is dumber than a sack of hair.
have a nice day.
