Gallup notes today that many people who took sides during the Transition have moved into "Undecided"-mode in past cycles. Maybe we witness the same here.

Rasmussen's national tracking for example showed 98% of those polled having an opinion about Obama until a few days ago. Today it's just 93% ...

The real Alabama numbers are probably something like 62%/38%. Heh.

The 15 states above are polled almost every month for Presidential, Senatorial and Gubernatorial Approval Ratings, but some states like Indiana, Pennsylvania etc. were only polled for the General Election ...

Kentucky(Smiley) is out.

Approve: 62%
Disapprove: 25%

http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=9c74442f-6013-401f-a949-7801bbecca36

Obama only received 69% of the Democrat vote in Kentucky, I wonder what it would've looked like with 83% instead.

After two days on the job, 25 percent of Kentuckians already disapprove. Honeymoon over?

Here’s what Sarah Palin represents: being a fat fucking pig who pins “Country First” buttons on his man titties and chants “U-S-A! U-S-A!” at the top of his lungs while his kids live off credit cards and Saudis buy up all the mortgages in Kansas.

No, I'd say the honeymoon is over because the press is already giving him a hard time over something silly (not letting enough reporters/cameras in on that second swearing in).  Tongue

SUSA has a ridiculously gigantic Republican bias in Minnesota for some reason.

I'm glad to hear that even states like Kentucky and Alabama support our President (and thus do not hate America or wish ill on our soldiers fighting overseas).

Interesting numbers.
I didn't know he has accomplished that much in less than a week. People should wait a bit before automatically loving him. If I had to guess, because he won't be able to make all of his promises, in one year, he will be around 55-60%.

What was the question they were asking? Perhaps "Do you approve of Obama swearing the oath?" I don't think that's about the only thing on which to judge him one way or the other at the moment...

Well, cabinet appointments and actions over the first two days, however few of them are.

Cabinet appointments is 90% what I'm going on, currently.

Of the two days Obama has been president so far, I really could not approve more. I was very worried that he'd start triangulating and backtracking right out of the gate; so far, it seems like he's sticking to his promises, and then some.

It should be noted that the TX and TN polls were taken Jan. 14, when Obama had a 65-33 rating nationally ...

The Minnesota numbers look fine to me (the subsamples don't but they're always way off due to the extreme MoE.) Obama's at about the max approval ANYONE can have in Minnesota due to polarization. Minnesota has so many hardcore left-wingers and hardcore right-wingers that the ceiling for approval for anyone is relatively low.
