Interestingly, RCP now has Obama at his highest approval since early June. Is it due to the economic news, ISIS events, or both?

Rasmussen has glorious news out today, as Obama for the first time in months comes out even-headed With a 49-49 approval. Smiley

But the Democrats running for the Senate and House cannot well exploit this fact. The Congressional ballot is dead even, which at best ensures practically ensures no change in the House 

Even if I am excessively partisan to make an objective statement, the President needs some genuine support on foreign policy -- support not tied to a willingness to concede  on all else to Senate and House Republicans to be able to execute an effective foreign policy.

In view of the behavior of Congressional and Senate Republicans, I have no cause to believe that the Republicans will not make a military victory over ISIS contingent upon accepting the transformation of America into a pure plutocracy. Yes, we have a war on our hands, with an enemy that America must defeat.

Barack Obama is not Dubya. He is cautious; he is meticulously honest. He may not relish war, but neither did Lincoln, Wilson, nor FDR. Lincoln, Wilson, and FDR won the wars that they did not want.

I don't think "sunk" is the right word. It's not like he hasn't been there lately.

YouGov polled all 50 states:



The national rating was 40% approve, 57% disapprove.

That looks like 2016 at 41-58 or something..

the result is a sense that we were told to attend a lavish dinner party that was going to be wonderful and by the time we got there, all the lobster and steak had been eaten, a fight had broken out, the police had been called and all that was left was warm beer and chips.

Quote
“The Georgia electorate appears to be the most pro-Obama group of likely voters in the 11 states CNN has surveyed this fall,” [CNN Director Keating]Holland said. “That’s not saying much — Obama’s approval rating among Georgia likely voters is only 44%. But that’s still better than the high-30s he gets in states like Iowa and new Hampshire, not to mention the low 30s in Kansas and Alaska.”

http://www.cnn.com/2014/10/24/politics/cnn-poll-georgia/index.html

Despite it falling dramatically in almost all battleground states and most others as well, Obama's approval rating remains virtually untouched in Georgia, of all places. Thanks, growing black electorate! If Georgia weren't so inelastic, I bet Obama would be down here campaigning for Nunn and Carter. He's literally been phoning it in though, by calling into black radio stations in ATL to support them.

It is pretty cool that the Democrats could lose a 1984-esque landslide these days and still win 100 electoral votes.

Indeed.

Indeed.

Incumbents usually gain about 6% in vote share from their early approval ratings if they run for re-election. They usually campaign to get re-elected unless they are have approval ratings well below 40%.

He'd still lose 47-53 or something.

I can see that happening to Hillary in 2016 if things remain about the same as they do today.

Shed probably get 45 or 46 in Colorado,New Hampshire, Nevada and Iowa, like 42 to 45 in states like Arkansas, Missouri and W Virginia. Shed get like 47 in N Carolina, Georgia, Florida and Ohio and barely lose Virginia, Pennsylvania and Minnesota. Shed pull off NM and MI though. Thatd put her between McCain and Romney.

No, it doesn't work that way for open seats. McCain won 46% of the vote even when Bush was at 25% approval.
