… Yes, Virginia, Santa has returned again in June …

Happy June 18th



President Obama has reached the 41% range on Friday. He has the lowest overall approval percentage since the beginning of the tracking poll. Rasmussen didn’t publish the exact values today, so this is rounded off, however, it is still the lowest. The previous low was on Wednesday of this week.

An outlier among independents has entered the data. This, with 36% approval among men, creates a very low overall percentage.

Although this lessening in support is obviously due to an outlier among independents, the overall signs demonstrate a continued weakening in support. Percents have been consistently falling over the last few days. Two thirds of this poll has been taken after the President’s address to the nation.

What a great speech, wasn’t it?
