Nice analysis, Brendan.

The Rasmussen poll shows worse results for the President:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-four percent (44%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -20

...today’s results are based almost entirely on interviews conducted before the president’s speech to the nation...

Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president's performance. That’s the lowest level of approval yet recorded for this president. Fifty-seven percent (57%) now disapprove.

The Rasmussen poll shows worse results for the President:

Sure, but Rasmussen always shows worse results for Democrats. It's got a well known Republican lean. Other pollsters have Democratic biases. That's why people look at the pollster averages.

It's easier to compare trends. Obama's approval rating started started at 60-70% had a fairly steady drop until last August, leveled off a bit and has been pretty stable since January.
