Just 24 percent of likely voters agree with President Barack Obama’s political views, a number identical to those of House Republicans and Democrats, a new Rasmussen Reports poll shows.
The president’s numbers are the worst since last August.
The telephone poll showed that 54 percent think Obama’s political views are more liberal than theirs, 13 percent more conservative, and 24 percent about the same.

The number of people viewing the president as more liberal has been in the mid-50s since last August, climbing to 61 percent in February.
However, members of Congress fare no better. The Rasmussen poll found that just 24 percent held the same political views of the average Republican and Democrat.
For the first time, the poll found that voters feel the agenda of congressional Republicans is “nearly as extreme as that of Democrats in Congress.”
Obama is viewed as qualified to be president by 54 percent, while GOP presidential hopeful Mitt Romney is the only Republican to poll as well on that question.
The poll also found that for the second week in a row, a generic GOP candidate edges out Obama 45 to 42 percent in a potential matchup.
The survey of 1,000 likely voters was conducted on June 2-3 by Rasmussen Reports with a sampling margin of plus or minus 3 percent.
