Rasmussen: 31% give Obama high marks on the economy

Begging the question, What are those 31% thinking?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey of Likely Voters show that just 31% rate Obama’s handling of economic issues as good or excellent. Forty-five percent (45%) say the president is doing a poor job handling these issues. (To see survey question wording, click here.)

Positive ratings for the president on these issues are down from 34% last week and are the lowest since he took office in early 2009.

Voters ages 40 and older are more critical of the president’s economic performance than those who are younger.

Sixty percent (60%) of Democrats rate the president’s handling of the economy as good or excellent, compared to seven percent (7%) of Republicans and 26% of voters not affiliated with either of the major parties.

They’re not thinking. They’re Democrats.
