Rasmussen: 26% of Voters Approve of Obama

By Hiram Reisner

The Rasmussen Reports daily presidential tracking poll for Thursday shows that 26 percent of the nation's voters strongly approve of the way President Barack Obama is performing his role as president; 35 percent strongly disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of minus nine.
This is just a two-point improvement since al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden’s death, but it is the president’s best approval index rating in nearly three months. Some polls are suggesting a big bounce for the president from the bin Laden news, but those are generally comparing the president’s current numbers with results from about a month ago.

Compared to a month ago, Rasmussen Reports polling shows that the president’s approval index rating has improved by seven points. Most of the gains occurred in the week beforebin Laden’s death.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number of the nation’s voters who strongly disapprove from the number who strongly approve.
