Obama disapproval ratings higher than George Zimmerman’s

President Obama has a higher disapproval rating than acquitted Sanford, Fla., neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman, Rasmussen polls released this weekend show.

According to a Rasmussen poll released Friday, Zimmerman, who vaulted to national opprobrium after shooting 17-year-old Trayvon Martin to death during a confrontation on Feb. 26, 2011, has a disapproval rating of 48 percent.

bobamObama, according to a Rasmussen poll released Sunday, has a disapproval rating of 51 percent.

So if you buy the liberal line, a man who disregarded instructions from a police dispatcher to stalk an unarmed black teenager solely because he was wearing a hoodie in the rain and ultimately shot the youth to death after provoking a confrontation draws a thumbs-down from a little under half the American public.

Meanwhile, a president whose scandal-ridden administration’s economic record is one of failed crony capitalism (Solyndra, the auto bailouts) and a dismal “recovery” that never seems to be taking hold, whose signature domestic policy “achievement” of Obamacare is turning into a predictable nightmare and whose foreign policy record is one of almost unmitigated failure  — “Arab spring,” Benghazi, Egypt —  gets a frown from just more than half of that same public.

Casey Anthony, meanwhile, remains pretty universally disliked, her attorney said last week.
