The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 27 percent of the nation’s voters strongly approve of the way President Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Thirty-four percent strongly disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of minus seven.
 
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; 49 percent disapprove.

A generic Republican picks up 45 percent of the vote in a match-up with the president while Obama gets 43 percent.

At the beginning of the year, voters trusted Republicans more than Democrats on 10 key issues tracked regularly by Rasmussen Reports. Now, the Democrats have an edge on 4 of the 10.

Republicans still have a 46 percent to 42 percent advantage on the economy, but Democrats lead on healthcare. Democrats dominated the healthcare issue in 2008, but the GOP had the edge in 2010.

On national security issues, Republicans still have the edge.
