Rasmussen: Obama approval rating continued downward trend in March 

President Obama's public support continues to head downward, according to the latest monthly compilation of Rasmussen Reports daily tracking survey.

"The number of voters who Strongly Disapprove of the president’s performance inched up a point in March - for the second month in a row - to 40%. This figure has stayed in a narrow range of 37% to 44% since July 2009.

"In March, the number who Strongly Approve of Obama’s performance dropped a point to 25%. That number has ranged from 25% to 30% since October 2009. By comparison, 43% Strongly Approved of the president's performance in January of that year, the month he took office.

"The new findings generate a full-month Presidential Approval Index rating of -15. That’s down two points from last month and down four points from January. The president’s approval index rating stayed between -14 and -17 for most of last year, with one exception in April when it improved to -11."
