When tracking President Obama’s job approval on a daily basis,
people sometimes get so caught up in the day-to-day fluctuations that they miss the bigger picture.
To look at the longer-term trends, Rasmussen Reports compiles the numbers on a full-month basis, and the results can be seen in the graphics below.
The president’s monthly job approval rating fell two points to 46% in July, his lowest monthly approval rating this year. It’s up just a point from his two-year low of 45% reached in November during the troubled rollout period for the new national health care law. Obama’s approval rating hit a year-to-date high of 49% in May and in February.
Daily tracking results are collected via telephone surveys of 500 likely voters per night. The monthly numbers in this article are based on approximately 15,000 interviews each month with likely voters. The margin of sampling error is less than +/- 1 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence.
