Most voters still believe President Obama is more liberal than they are, while just one-out-of-four say they share the same ideological views as the president.
The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 54%Â of Likely U.S. VotersÂ think Obama is more ideologically liberal than they are, while only 13% view him as more conservative. Twenty-four percent (24%) say their political views are about the same as the president’s. (To see survey question wording,Â click here.)
The number who see the president as more liberal than they are stayed at 57% in three-out-of-four previous surveys conducted sinceÂ August of last year.Â That number climbed to 61% inÂ late February.Â The number who view the president as more conservative ranged from nine percent (9%) to 12% in that same period.
The number of voters who say they share about the same political views as the president ties the lowest result measured since August and, interestingly, compares exactly withÂ the number who say the same of Congress.Â Only 24% of voters hold about the same ideological views as the average Republican member of Congress, and another 24% feel that way about the views of the average Democratic congressman.
Forty-five percent (45%) of Democratic voters, however, say their views are about the same as the presidentâ€™s, although that ties the lowest finding to date. The number of Democrats who felt this way peaked at 60% in late February. Twenty-four percentÂ (24%) of Democrats say the president is more conservative than they are, while 22% think he is more liberal.
The survey of 1,000 Likely Voters was conducted on June 2-3, 2011 by Rasmussen Reports. The margin of sampling error is +/- 3 percentage points with a 95% level of confidence. Field work for all Rasmussen Reports surveys is conducted byÂ Pulse Opinion Research, LLC. SeeÂ methodology.
An overwhelming number (84%) of Republicans andÂ 57% of voters not affiliated with either major political party feelÂ the president is more liberal than they are. Twenty percent (20%) of unaffiliated voters share about the same ideological views as the president.
Sixty-one percent (61%) of investors see Obama as more liberal than they are. Forty percent (40%) of union members say their political views are about the same as the president’s, compared to 22% of non-members. But nearly as many union members (38%) say the president is more liberal than they are.
