"President Barack Obama's approval rating has slipped, as a growing number of Americans see him listening more to his party's liberals than to its moderates, and many voice opposition to some of his key economic proposals. Obama's job approval rating has slipped from 64% in February to 59% currently, while disapproval has jumped from 17% to 26% over this period. Disapproval of Obama has increased markedly among Republicans (by 15 points) as well as among independents (13 points)."

I think its safe to say that Scott Rasmussen is a republican proxy. I wish he would look at all the other polls that are at odds with his poll in so many ways. That troll is a sneaky scum. He adjusted his polls number for the presidential race on the last day so, he could claim he came the closest. Conservatives are so hopeless, they are even buying pollster now.
