  • Daily Presidential Tracking Poll

    The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Tuesday shows that 62% of Likely U.S. Voters approve of President Obama's job performance. Thirty-eight percent (38%) disapprove.

    The latest figures include 41% of who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 29% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of +12 (see trends).

    These are the final approval numbers we will post for Obama. We will look back at his approval ratings throughout his presidency at 1 pm. EST today.

    Because Rasmussen Reports’ daily Presidential Tracking Poll is based on three days of surveying, we will not post new numbers again until Friday when we will begin tracking President Trump’s job approval.

    Regular updates are posted Monday through Friday at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update).
