Barack Obama’s Rasmussen approval ratings for June

July 7th, 2009 at 07:57am

Another month (and a week) gone, so it must be time, once again, to check in on US President Barack Obama’s approval ratings, and it has to be said that June was not a great month for him, with the “strongly approve vs strongly disapprove” figures favouring the “strongly disapprove” for the first time ever, and for a number of days in the month.

As always, the figures presented herein are taken from the Rasmussen Daily Tracking Poll.

June saw, as the overall trend, a slow closing of the gap between the raw “approve” and “disapprove” numbers.

Looking solely at the “strongly approve” vs “strongly disapprove” figure, known as the “Rasmussen Approval Index”, we see that it crossed the zero line many times.

As usual, to put this in context, here are the graphs for all of 2009.

It’s quite clear, looking at those graphs, that June continued what May paused: the gradual increase in disapproval with Barack Obama. It’s just a pity that the US system of government does not have an opposition leader, as I would love to be able to compare the figures with an opposition leader if they had one.
