Zogby Poll: Obama Approval Holds Steady at 51%

Monday, 15 Feb 2010 12:45 PM

As we celebrate Presidents Day, a new Zogby Interactive poll of likely voters shows Obama's overall approval rating holding steady at 51 percent. He continues to enjoy higher approval ratings among Democrats (86 percent), First GlobalsTM (54 percent), and Liberals (91 percent).

Meanwhile, 90 percent of Republicans and 95 percent of Conservatives disapprove of the job he is doing, numbers almost unchanged from our February 2nd poll .

A separate poll of likely voters conducted January 15 through January 18 shows that most voters (41 percent) feel it is still too early to rank Obama's overall standing compared to other U.S. Presidents. However, a majority of Republicans (70 percent) and conservatives (77 percent) rank Obama in the bottom third of all Presidents.

When asked in the same poll about former President George W. Bush, a plurality of those surveyed (49 percent) rank Bush in the bottom third of all Presidents. Bush is ranked higher by Republicans and conservatives, and lower by Democrats, Independents, liberals, and moderates.

Finally, in celebration of Presidents Day, respondents were asked to write in their selection for the greatest U.S President. Partisan patterns were again evident; though 16th President Abraham Lincoln showed his bipartisan appeal appearing at the top of the overall list and appearing either first or second for each party.

The interactive survey of greatest Presidents and overall rankings of George W. Bush and Barack Obama was conducted by Zogby International from January 15 through January 18, 2010 with a sample size of 1,963 likely voters nationwide.

A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, education to more accurately reflect the population. The margin of error is +/- 2.2 percentage points. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.

The interactive survey of Obama job approval was conducted by Zogby International from February 9 to February 11, 2010, with a sample size of 2,641 likely voters nationwide. A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate. Slight weights were added to region, party, age, race, religion, gender, education to more accurately reflect the population. The margin of error is +/- 1.9 percentage points. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.
