Rasmussen: Obama 45%, Generic Republican 44%

Wednesday, 25 May 2011 01:59 PM

By Hiram Reisner

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 25 percent of the nation’s voters strongly approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-five percent strongly disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of minus 10.

Meanwhile, the president holds a 45 percent to 44 percent edge over a generic Republican in an early look at 2012.  Republicans hold a two-point advantage over Democrats on the generic congressional ballot.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern time.

Overall, 50 percent of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. Forty-eight percent disapprove.
