After he sounded moderate during his State of the Union address, polls showed a sharp rise in Pres. Obama's popularity. Now that he is once again pushing Obamacare, the post-SotU address bounce has disappeared:Rasmussen says that Pres. Obama's current, as of Sunday, net approval (strongly approve minus strongly disapprove) is -19%, the second lowest on record. The only lower number, -21%, was from last December 22 just as the Senate was about to force through, on a pure party-line vote, its health care takeover bill.
UPDATE: As of Monday, 22-Feb-2010, the net approval remains unchanged at Sunday's -19.
