Ramussen Reports says that for the first time since he was elected, Barack Obama’s Presidential Approval Index rating has gone to zero.

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Friday shows that 34% of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Thirty-four percent (34%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of 0. That’s the highest level of strong disapproval and the lowest overall rating yet recorded (see trends).

But Obama’s opponents shouldn’t celebrate yet. The spectacle of Britain’s Gordon Brown shambling on like a zombie after six members of his cabinet resigned, the credibility of his administration at an all time low in the polls and the recent wipe-out of the Labour Party in local government elections demonstrates how much of a licking a politician can take and still keep ticking — if he’s on the left.
