Obama upside-down by 15% in latest poll
According to the latest presidential tracking numbers from the Rasmussen poll, only 26% of registered voters say that they "strongly approve" of Barack Obama's job performance, while 41% "strongly disapprove" - leaving him upside-down by 15 points among passionate voters.

“Last week, I came to the Senate floor to speak out on an issue that’s on the minds of a lot of Americans these days — the rising cost of gas at the pump – and how the administration’s policies are making matters worse.
