The Steady Decline of Obama's Popularity.

Rasmussen tracks the Daily Presidential Approval Index. The index is calculated by taking the percent that strongly approve and subtracting the percent that strongly disapprove. The index started at +23 in January and has declined to -10 in October. That is a 33 point swing in 10 months.

When tracking President Obama’s job approval on a daily basis, people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture. To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results can be seen in the graphics below.
