Looks Like Obama's Post Health Care Reform Poll Bump is Gone
Last weekend President Obama had a -20 Rasmussen Presidential Approval Index. The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the strong disapproval number from the strong approval number. After the Democrats passed Obamacare and President Obama got tons of favorable press signing it, his Presidential Approval Index improved to -10 by mid-week and held there through Friday. The change was induced by the strong approval number. The number of voters strongly approving of President Obama went from a low of 22% last weekend to a high of 32% on Thursday. Now, the bump is dissipating and Obama's Presidential Approval Index is back down to -16.
