Interesting that VA would mirror the nation as a whole, assuming that poll is worth something (and I'm not).

Approve 44%, u.

Disapprove 55%, u.

"Strongly Approve" is at 20%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 42%, u.


Not much movement.

We are reaching a point where the Gallup numbers will become important.  If, beginning next week, Obama starts dropping below 40% and stays there on the weekly numbers, it is probably over.

No, there have been no October polls.

Maybe they have dropped them, because they were utterly ridiculous.

A mild Obama bump in the polls...

Doing an apples to apples comparison and taking the current RCP average versus the same poll from (about) a month ago.....

Rasmussen Reports 11/5 - 11/7 1500 LV 45 54 -9 (Unchanged at -9 versus October 1st)

Gallup 11/4 - 11/6 1500 A 43 50 -7 (Unchanged at -7 from October 1st)

NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl  44 51 -7 (unchanged at-7 net as Oct 10th poll)

ABC News/Wash Post 10/31 - 11/3 1004 A 44 53 -9 (Gain of 3 % net from October 2nd poll)

Reuters/Ipsos 10/31 - 11/3 1106 A 49 50 -1 (gain of 2% from October 10th poll)

Quinnipiac 10/25 - 10/31 2294 RV 47 49 -2 (Gain of 12% from October 3rd poll)

FOX News 10/23 - 10/25 904 RV 43 50 -7 (Gain of 1% from September 27th poll)

How does the Sesame Street song go... "One of these things, is not like the others....."

An interesting poll.

They ask the "approval question" quite deep into the survey after having presented the GOP and Dem positions on a variety of issues.

Because of this, this poll is "kinda" a very mild version of a "push poll" - I am not saying this in a negative way BTW, in campaigns it is standard procedure to present a variety of issues and see if the presentation of these issues impacts the "horse race question" as a way of testing campaign themes.

Given that it has been quite a while since Obama has a net positive approval rating in any poll, this poll suggests, at least as presented in this survey, that Obama can make up a bit of ground "on the issues" and that the policy issues , at least as framed in this poll,  are more popular than he is personally.

The President is doing fine on everything but the economy.  Of course, it is questionable that anyone can get the sort of results that most of us want... fast. Only a fool believes that the President can win re-election on  inertia alone. So there is a little good news... maybe not enough. Of course, Hoover was a fine President on about everything but economic performance.

Some Republican could offer a "secret fifteen-point plan for growing our way out of the Obama Depression", and if people are desperate enough they will fall for it. The best thing about some such plans is that there is no plan; second-best would be that it would be fifteen trivialities. The worst thing about such a plan is that there might be good reasons for keeping its contents secret. Almost nobody wants a huge reduction in living standards for himself so that someone far away and far better-off can get richer.

I think this should have been obvious by looking at how well Hillary Clinton does in head to head match ups against the Republican field. Not a lot of polls have come out with that match up though, but it's still very interesting.
