For whatever reasons (Perhaps his opening his mouth?), Obama’s numbers are slipping in the final days of the election.
At first, I made a point not to read too much into his slippage in Rasmussen’s Daily Presidential Tracking Poll. Tracking polls have their statistical noise.
But now the decline is unmistakable. Obama’s Approval Index, which nets those who strongly approve and strongly disapprove of Obama’s performance, has slipped 5 points in two days and 10 points in 9 days to -20. You may check the trends in detail here.
At the risk of stating the obvious, this certainly does not bode well for the Democrats.
