Public opinion pollster Scott Rasmussen tells Newsmax that opposition to President Barack Obama's healthcare reform plan is "weighing down" his job approval rating which is now at an all-time low.

Rasmussen also declared that if the economy does not improve over the next year, Obama's approval numbers will deteriorate even further and Democrats will suffer in the 2010 elections.

Rasmussen is founder and CEO of Rasmussen Reports and co-founder of the sports network ESPN. He has been an independent public opinion pollster for over a decade, and most major news organizations cite his reports. Newsmax.TV's Kathleen Walter asked Rasmussen about the latest poll results on Obama and his healthcare reform plan.

"The healthcare issue you can look at in one of two ways," he said.

"The good news for the president is that support for the plan has stopped falling. The bad news is most Americans are opposed.

"Adding to the troubles for the administration is that people who have strong opinions are even more likely to be opposed. Just 23 percent of Americans strongly support the proposed healthcare reform legislation, and 43 percent are strongly opposed.

"This is weighing down the president's job approval rating. As of Monday morning he's at the lowest level yet just 46 percent of all Americans say they approve of the way he's doing his job."

This is the most important stat of all. What is amazing to me is how many people don't like the bill yet insult others for not supporting it.

If only being president was as easy as reading a tele-promter. Which brings me to the point that you would think he would at least have some brilliant speech writers work up a great speech (his only true talent) to fire up his base but he doesn't even seem bright enough to figure that out.

Tells me our Republic is working to some extent at least. No president is entitled to his agenda being voted on. We have a congress and a senate for a reason.

I think that well went dry.

He's all of that and you know it. Yet you keep pretending otherwise. This is a guy who had the chessboard rigged in his favor, and 7 months in, he's put himself in checkmate.

Putin is over in Moscow laughing so hard, he's peeing himself.
