Rasmussen has found more bad news for President Obama. 50% of voters now think his handling of the economy is poor. The only thing keeping President Obama's approval numbers hovering close to 50% is many Independents still blame Bush for our economic woes. That is beginning to change.
Obama administration officials continue to insist that the economy is showing signs of improvement, but most voters aren’t buying it. The Discover (R) Consumer Spending Monitor shows that just 28% of Americans think the economy is getting better, while 48% say it’s getting worse.
A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 50% of voters now view President Obama’s handling of the economy as poor. This is the president’s highest negative rating in this area since he took office in January 2009.
Thirty-six percent (36%) give Obama good or excellent marks for his handling of economic issues.
