Obama Has Lost Unaffiliated Voters

Rasmussen has some bad news for Barack Obama.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 27% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-two percent (42%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. This is the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for President Obama (see trends).

Fifty-two percent (52%) of Democrats Strongly Approve while 68% of Republicans Strongly Disapprove. Among those not affiliated with either major political party, just 16% Strongly Approve and 51% Strongly Disapprove (see other recent demographic highlights from the tracking poll).

51 percent of unaffilated voters, those not affiliated with either party, strongly disapprove of Obama's job performance compared to just 16 percent strongly approve.

Among all voters, 54 percent disapprove while 45 percent approve.

Obama's signature obamacare has also reach an all time low in support according to the same article:

Support for the health care plan proposed by the President and Congressional Democrats has fallen to a new low of 38%. Sixty percent (60%) of voters believe passage of the bill will lead to higher health care costs.

The harder they push, the more Independents/Unaffiliated voters they lose and yet they keep right on pushing.

The upcoming 2010 elections just became much more interesting.
