Obama’s Approval Rating Down

Jim Lindgren at the Volokh Conspiracy brings us the latest Rasmussen results that show that president Obama’s approval ratings are down even more, and that the percentage of those who “strongly disapprove” of Obama is the same as those who felt the same about Bush when he left office.

When George Bush left office he was deeply unpopular: in Bush’s last month, according to Rasmussen 43% strongly disapproved of the job Bush was doing, while only 13% strongly approved, for a staggering negative rating of –30%. Rasmussen’s Thursday release shows that after 14 months in office President Barack Obama has achieved Bush’s 43% of the people strongly disapproving of his performance, but Obama is still 10% ahead of Bush in those who strongly approve (23% v. 13% for Bush).

Lindgren also asks a very good question: What would Obama’s approval look like if the media treated him the way they treated Bush?
