Obama Monthly Approval in December Up Two Points From Recent Low

Thursday, January 02, 2014

When tracking President Obama’s job approval on a daily basis,  people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture.   To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results can be seen in the graphics below.  

The president’s total job approval rose two points to 47% in December. That’s up from 45% in November, the president’s lowest monthly approval in two years, but still down nine points from December 2012’s recent high of 56%. The president's rating took a hard hit in November from the problems surrounding the rollout of the new national health care law. Through much of November and early December, Obama’s daily job approval ratings were at the lowest levels of his entire presidency.
