Obama Approval Ratings Hits New Low With Under Half Of His Own Party Strongly Approving

The numbers are dismal for Barack Obama with 45 percent of the nation's voters strongly disapproving and only 23 percent strongly approving, but the surprising number is that only 48 percent of Democrats strongly approving which is a 17 point drop from earlier polling.

Overall numbers are not much better, showing the majority of the nation's voters (56 percent)disapproving of Barack Obama's job performance and 43 percent somewhat approving.

According to Rasmussen, Obama is at the lowest approval rating index measured so far since Obama took office.

Most Americans have “come to believe that the political system is broken, that most politicians are corrupt, and that neither major political party has the answers,” observes Scott Rasmussen. Just 27% believe Congress knows what it’s doing when it comes to the economy and 41% say that a group of people randomly selected from the phone book would do a better job than the current Congress.
