Rasmussen – Voters More Critical of Obama, BP For Oil Leak Response

The latest Rasmussen Reports national telephone survey shows that 61% of Likely Voters now give the companies associated with the leak – British Petroleum and Transocean – poor ratings for their response to the ongoing problem. That’s up 20 points from two weeks ago and up 33 points from the beginning of May.
Only 11% give the companies’ response good or excellent ratings, down from 23% two weeks ago. In early May, the companies’ response received good or excellent reviews from 29%. Americans’ anger towards BP has led to a majority who say they will likely boycott the company’s products.
Meanwhile, 45% now say the president is doing a poor job handling the incident. That’s up 11 points from two weeks ago and 19 points at the beginning of last month. Thirty percent (30%) give the president good or excellent marks for his handling of the situation, down from 38% two weeks ago.
