      Thanks :). Even better (IMO) is having completed 24 straight weeks here (on the 19th) without burning out OR getting flamed (that I know of … if I did, my thanks to whoever shielded me from ugly words).

  3. Thanks for the graphic and hat tip, Chrissy. The only “tweak” I would recommend is that it’s not so much about “respect” as it is about “approval”. Two-thirds (2/3) of likely voters have less approval for Obama now than when he took office. That’s really rather staggering. And of the 1/3 that feel the same about him now vs. then, 42% of those (14/33) are people who have consistently strongly disapproved of Obama… and I am proud to be a member of that group. I saw this Marxist for who he was back in early 2008.

    P.S. Congrats on your 602nd post! 🙂

  4. It’s official… Rasmussen has Obama at -21 for the month of August…

    In August, the number who Strongly Approve of Obama’s job performance was at 21%. That’s down three points from 24% in July and the lowest level measured during Obama’s entire presidency. The previous low was 23% reached in both April and June of this year.

    Since July 2009, the number who Strongly Approved of the president’s performance has now ranged from a low of 21% to a high of 31%. By comparison, 43% Strongly Approved of Obama’s performance in January 2009.

    The number of voters who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s performance increased a point from July to 42% in August. The number of voters who Strongly Disapproved has ranged from 37% to 44% since July 2009.

    The full-month Presidential Approval Index rating for August is down four points from July to -21. That’s by far Obama’s lowest full-month approval index rating since taking office in January 2009. Prior to this survey, Obama’s lowest level of approval was -17, reached three times since January 2009. With a few exceptions, the president’s approval index rating has stayed between -14 and -17 since the beginning of 2010.

    The president’s total job approval dipped two points in August to 44%, also the lowest level of approval to date. The last time half (50%) of voters approved of Obama’s performance was in July 2009. For 2011, prior to this survey, the president’s total job approval on a full-month basis has remained in the narrow range of 46% to 49%. Throughout 2010, Obama’s full month approval ratings ranged from 45% to 47%.

    Fifty-five percent (55%) disapproved of the president’s performance in August, the highest level measured yet. That finding has ranged from 49% to 54% since July 2009.
