    rasmussenreports.com Rasmussenreports.com 2 hrs 43 mins ago

    Voters tell Rasmussen Reports this about President Obama as he reaches his 100th day in office:

    -- Thirty-five perecent (35%) Strongly Approve while 31% Strongly Disapprove of his performance as president. This is the finding for Obama's 100th day in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll.

    -- Seventy-three percent (73%) expect government spending to go up during the Obama years. This marks one of the biggest changes in perception about the president since he was elected. Last November, just 54% expected Obama would preside over a growth in government spending. On Inauguration Day, 63% held that view.

    -- Twenty percent (20%) expect their taxes to go down during the Obama years while 36% expect a tax increase.

    -- Sixty-nine percent (69%) now say Obama is politically liberal.

    -- Forty-nine percent (49%) say the president is doing a good or excellent job on the economy. Thirty-four percent (34%) say he is doing a poor job.

    -- On national security issues, 50% say the president is doing a good or excellent job while 31% say his performance is poor.

    -- Fifty-four percent (54%) say he is a good or excellent leader.

    -- Forty-one percent (41%) say Obama's more ethical than most politicians. Another 27% say he's about as ethical as his political peers.

    -- Fifty-eight percent (58%) say it's at least somewhat likely Obama will get the troops home from Iraq by the end of his first term in office. This number fell below 60% for the first time this month as violence increased in Iraq and the president opted to shift thousands of troops to Afghanistan.

    -- Thirty-five percent (35%) believe the president is governing on a bipartisan basis while 46% say he is acting as a partisan Democrat.

    -- Fifty-five percent (55%) of voters say politics in Washington, D.C. will be more partisan over the next year, while 29% say it will be more cooperative.

    These numbers and other indicators of the public mood are updated regularly on the By the Numbers page.
