The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that newly re-elected President Barack Obama’s approval rating stands at 52 percent, matching his share of the popular vote.
“As we have been reporting all year, a president’s job approval rating is one of the best indicators for assessing his chances of reelection,” Rasmussen noted. “The president’s job approval on the morning of Election Day precisely matched his share of the vote. That happened the last time an incumbent ran for reelection as well.”
The poll showed that Obama received a small bounce in approval as a result of his win and the 52 percent approval is his highest since September when he was enjoying a convention bounce. Regardless, the country is still sharply divided over the president with 90 percent of Democrats approving of his performance and 87 percent of Republicans disapproving.
