See our weekly review of key polls to learn “What They Told Us.”

Obama's approval ratings are dropping like a rock
According to the latest Rasmussen polling, President Obama's approval ratings are headed south. The concern voters have over the stimulus bill seems to be taking a toll on his popularity. The very partisan way he is conducting business can not help. There is also the issue of many of his nominees being outed as tax cheats. Also, his first tax increase mainly affects the poor. I predict his approval will be below 50% by the end of March.
