More Voters Than Ever View Obama as a ‘Partisan Democrat’; 70 percent of Voters 'Angry' with Government Policies
A new Rasmussen Report survey shows that 56 percent of likely voters believe President Obama is governing like a partisan Democrat, up three points since last month and currently at the highest level since he took office in January 2009. The week after his inauguration, only 39 percent felt this way.
On President Obama: Only 28 percent of voters questioned said that Obama is governing on a bipartisan basis, tying the lowest levels measured from last month, with 16 percent not sure.
-- 53 percent of likely voters are “somewhat concerned” that those opposed to Obama’s policies will resort to violence, while 42 percent do not share that concern.
On Washington and the federal government: Perhaps the most startling finding in the survey is that 70 percent of voters say they are angry with the policies of the federal government, with 48 percent saying they are “very angry.”
