President Obama and congressional Democrats are losing steam in the latest daily Rasmussen survey. The poll also shows Americans don't believe a requirement that people show a photo ID before voting is discriminatory.
The Rasmussen poll released Tuesday, April 17, adds more evidence that more Americans strongly disapprove of President Obama’s job performance. The survey shows only 25% of Americans strongly approve of the job the president is doing while 39% strongly disapprove, giving Obama a -14 Approval Index rating.
The survey shows an overwhelming majority of Americans favor requiring people to show a photo ID before voting. A whopping 73% say the requirement is not discriminatory. Leaders of the Democrat Party consistently rail against such a requirement while most Republicans say voter IDs should be free but are necessary to safeguard the country's electoral process.
There is good news for presumptive Republican nominee Mitt Romney in the survey. The poll has Romney leading Obama 46 to 45 percent, well within the margin for error.
The Rasmussen poll shows that overall 48% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's job performance while 50% at least somewhat disapprove.
There is good news for Republicans in the Rasmussen Generic Congressional Ballot where GOP candidates now hold a 10-point advantage.
