Obama Approval Ratings Not Hurt By Blago

Posted by | December 15, 2008 16:14 | Filed under: Top Stories

Nate Silver shows how the trials and tribulations of Rod Blagojevich have not had an adverse affect on the popularity of our president-elect.


Gallup shows that 72 percent of the public has a favorable view of Obama, and 18 percent an unfavorable view. The 72 percent favorability rating matches the 72 percent score that Obama achieved on November 7th-9th for the highest since the election, whereas the 18 percent disapproval rating is Obama’s lowest yet. Three days ago, before Blagojevich’s arrest, those ratings were 70 percent and 21 percent, respectively.


Rasmussen, likewise, sees no change to Obama’s approval ratings. 67 percent of their voters now approve of Obama’s performance, and 31 percent disapprove, exactly matching Obama’s ratings from three days prior, and within a percentage point of his peak totals.

Obama-bashers will just have to try harder to come up with something with which to dent their new nemesis.
