This is a Presidential approval rating graph from RasmussenReports.com. The green line shows the percentage of people that strongly approve of the job Obama is doing as President. The red line shows the percentage of people that strongly disapprove of the job he’s doing. This is based on a survey of 1,500 people and is the most updated poll as of 8/23/09.
Rasmussen figures the number as an index with the strongly disapprove numbers subtracted from the strongly approve numbers. Today’s figure at -14 is the lowest this has been.
