Obama Ratings Sinking Faster Than The Titanic

But is anyone in the media really paying attention to it? Or are they seemingly at all concerned? You would never know it to watch or read main stream media in America this morning.

A:;; the focus is on the 'big vote' tomorrow. Meanwhile, a number of prominent weekend radio pundits and bloggers are noting another staggering factoid coming out of other polls. and that factoid is that upwards of 45% of doctors polled, said that if the president's health care reform act passes and becomes law, they will be leaving the profession.

Which leads to an interesting quandary for this administration. Aside from the fact that the math involved in this bill simply doesn't work and everyone from the CBO on down has said so, we are now to believe that we will insure an additional thirty million people and provided affordable health care to them and everyone else?

With 45% fewer doctors?


The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 23% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21. That matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President (see trends).

Each time the President leads a big push for his health care plan, his job approval ratings suffer. While some portions of the plan are popular, others are not. Most voters oppose the proposed Medicare savings and the taxes involved. As a result, most voters continue to oppose the legislation. Just 20% of voters believe that most Members of Congress will understand the proposed health care bill before they vote on it. From a political perspective, 50% are less likely to vote for a Member of Congress who supports the health care reform plan proposed by the President and Congressional Democrats.
