"53 percent unhappy with his performance and 37 percent approving of it." AP<quoted text>
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Thursday shows that 51% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance.
on the rise.
and btw....republicans vote and they're not happy with republicans.
Many Republican respondents were unsparing in their view of what their representatives have been doing:
More than a third of Republicans disapproved of how their partyís members in Congress are doing their job, while nearly 40% said congressional Republicans were putting the partyís agenda above the good of the country [bold mine-DL].
When that many people in your own party are against what youíve been doing, it is absurd to believe that you are in a position to ďwinĒ anything.
37 percent approve of Obama. That's not much more than the 35 percent that would vote for Ming the Merciless if he were the Democrat running for president.
Without that built-in 35 percent that would vote for the corpse of a dead dog if it were the Democrat, Obama's job approval rating is at 2 percent.
... 2 percent.
