Biden beats Obama

Forty-six percent (46%) of U.S. voters have a favorable opinion of Vice President Joseph Biden. That’s down four points from last month and ties August for the lowest such finding about the vice president since he took office in January.

He beat out his boss by 7% as Obama came in with 29% of those polled strongly approving of his job. 39% strongly disapprove of Obama giving him a -10 index rating in the latest Rasmussen Reports poll.

Must be because he’s a white guy, right?

A new Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey finds that 47% view Biden unfavorably. While 18% have a very favorable perception of the vice president, 24% regard him very unfavorably.

Positive views of Biden have ranged from a low of 46% to a high of 56% in early March. His unfavorables hit a low of 39% in early March but climbed as high as 50% in August.

In a very early look at the 2012 race to challenge Obama, Mike Huckabee leads the pack and is trailed by Mitt Romney and Sarah Palin.

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.
