Rasmussen Reports Obama’s Strongly Approve/Disapprove Numbers

Rasmussen’s Saturday, May 16, report begins - - -

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 34% of the nation's voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. With just one exception, that number has stayed between 34% and 38% every day for more than two months.

Thirty percent (30%) now Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +4 (see trends).

Here’s a graphic of the poll’s findings:

The graphic makes obvious what Rasmussen’s been finding and reporting on a daily basis since Inauguration day.

Yet you don’t here much, if anything, from MSM about a well-respected poll reporting that close to two-thirds of respondents now either strongly approve or strongly disapprove of President Obama (34% + 30%).

Or that the percent of respondents who strongly approve of Obama has been declining while the percent of those who strongly disapprove has been growing.

What we get from MSM is just what Team Obama wants reported: “rah-rah” stories about “the President’s high approval ratings” and “President Obama’s extraordinary popularity.”

MSM's ignoring a very important story; and IMO that's no accident.

The lapdogs are afraid that the White House won't approve of their tricks. If Obama took BO to a news conference, the primary reaction would be envy.

If the media report the truth, they wouldn't be getting any bailout money from Obama.

So it's cover up, spin, don't report the news, otherwise known as, business as usual.
