Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 49%, +1.

Disapprove 50%, -1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 28%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  42%, -1.

Head to head is tied at 46/48 Obama, and with leaners 47/49.

 On 10/1, Rasmussen will start including leaners in their head to head numbers.  http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll

http://www.gallup.com/poll/124922/Presidential-Job-Approval-Center.aspx

Approve: 48%, -2


Disapprove: 46%, +2

This is probably due to the drop off of the post 47% comment.

Head to head, is still Obama 50% (u), Romney 44% (u).  Let's see if it closes by Tuesday.

Probably Gallup has a bad Obama sample inside (too much disapproval).

Why would the 47% comment effect Obama job approval.  "Oh, look my opponent said something dumb, therefore I am doing a better job."  It doesn't fit.  47% would drive up Romney's unfavorables as a candidate, not Obama's approval!

As for approval, I think the uptick has more to do with the Dow going from 13,000 to 13,500 than any gaffes or conventions.  We'll see if things stabilize here with the bad econ data this week...

Actually it does fit.  People do make the comparison with the alternative.

But the QE3 rally coming to an end also fits the timing here.  Historically, gaffes don't fundamentally move a race in polling.  Bitter clingers didn't in 2008, for example.  By contrast, the stock market is highly correlated.

Well, not really.  The market has not improved greatly since QE 3 was announced, though it has improved.

I still maintain that perceptions about the economy are behind Obama's better standing this month than last.  The favorability gap is roughly the same as it has always been but approval is up.  We're  well out of convention bounce range now, so it can't be that.  Consider that Obama and Romney are now in a statistical tie on "handling of the economy" in most polls and that the direction of the country numbers have also closed from 65-30 to about 55-40.  You're right that the economy isn't doing anything amazing, but the markets and consumer confidence are up at the margins.  It's mainly psychological.  It seems like the "this would be 1932 without me" Obama narrative is finally winning over the middle 10%.

Gallup goes LV tomorrow, so that will surely close the margin a bit.  I still think it's the relatively bad econ news this week.  Or the end of a small "rally around the leader" related to Libya.

I gather that you think the economy is pretty baked in now, barring something crazy like +350K or net job losses in September?

Yes and no.  The right track numbers peaked after the DNC and then have bobbed slightly lower.
