More Voters Than Ever See Obama As Partisan Democrat

Less than a week after President Obama signed the health care reform bill into law, more voters than ever say he is governing like a partisan Democrat.

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 56% of likely voters believe the president is governing like a partisan Democrat, up three points over the past month and the highest level measured since he took office in January 2009.

The week after his inauguration, just 39% of voters felt that way.

Only 28% now say the president is governing on a bipartisan basis, tying the lowest level measured reached last month. Another 16% are not sure.

Not surprisingly, Republicans are twice as likely as Democrats to say the president is governing on a partisan basis. Half (50%) of voters not affiliated with either party say the president is governing like a partisan Democrat, but 31% disagree.

However, the president isn’t the only one in Washington, D.C. that voters say is governing in a partisan manner. Following their passage of the health care plan without a single Republican vote, Democrats are viewed as behaving like partisan Democrats by 63% of voters, down three points from last month. Twenty-two percent (22%) say Democrats are acting in a bipartisan manner, up seven points from February.

Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Republicans and 64% of unaffiliated voters see the Democrats in Congress as behaving in a partisan fashion. Just 49% of Democratic voters agree.
