Here's another interesting tidbit from the Rasmussen Reports Internet poll we reported on yesterday. It seems Republicans in Texas — Rasmussen polled 831 likely GOP primary voters — are generally unimpressed with President Barack Obama. Here's the Obama poll question and results:
4* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
8% Strongly approve
8% Somewhat approve
10% Somewhat disapprove
73% Strongly disapprove
1% Not sure
Nearly three-quarters of the respondents in the poll said they don't simply disapprove, they "strongly" disapprove of the job Obama has done so far. A scant 8 percent said they strongly approve.
GOPers seem to have warmer feelings about conservative darling Gov. Rick Perry, though. Here's the question and answers about the job Perry's done as governor:
5* How would you rate the job Rick Perry has been doing as Governor… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?
22% Strongly approve
46% Somewhat approve
20% Somewhat disapprove
11% Strongly disapprove
1% Not sure
