Why weren't these people more vocal back in 2007 or 2008, when Obama's health care plan was first proposed?

Obama had a health care plan in 2007 or 2008?  Actually, Obama has a health care plan now?  Must've missed something.

I'm not going to necessarily brag about what I've said for many years, but it is the truth and gets proven "more truthier" every day.

Health care is to the Democrats what immigration reform is to Republicans - an issue that can be campaigned on, but must never be legislated on, otherwise it ends up destroying you.

This is so mainly because the polls lie.  Everyone says they want "universal health care" but the moment when you get into the specifics as to what is required, the people (and your base) turn against it and you.
Yeah, passing and prtecting Medicare has been a pain for Democrats to run on the last 40 years.

Medicare?  You have to go back that far for a reference.  You do realize my comparison issue - immigration reform - was not really on Republican radar screens until the last 15-20 years or so.  So, my comment is really not intended to go back that far.

Also, the comment refers to passing legislation, not protecting or whatever euphemistic term you want to come up with.  Which reminds me, the present legislation in front of Congress does not protect Medicare one bit.  Go read it.

Btw, if we're going to get real technical about it, LBJ signed Medicare into law in 1965.  And then examine how Democrats performed in the 1966 or 1968 or 1970 or 1972 elections.  Not that it was about Medicare, but I'm really growing tired of the stupidity around here.

Anyway, here's what I think the map for Obama approval ratings are right now.



Red is approve
Blue is disapprove
Grey is tied

States that are close to 5050: Virginia, Colorado, New Mexico, Nevada, Ohio, Florida

I agree with your analysis Darius, except I think Florida may lean a bit more to the GOP then 50/50, and Ohio a bit more to the Dems.

My TOP SECRET SOURCE informed me this morning that Rasmussen Reports is going to show President Obama at 46% approval-his LOWEST. APPROVAL. EVER.

I have to be dramatic because my source is almost never wrong.  They are reliable 90% of the time.  I wish I could tell you my source but I can't!  It's a SUPER BIG SECRET.

But take my word for it!  Obama will be at 46% approval when Rasmussen Reports releases their daily tracking poll at 930 AM EDT.

"Overall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Thatís the lowest level of total approval yet measured for Obama. 53% now disapprove.

81% of Democrats approve while 83% of Republicans disapprove. As for those not affiliated with either major party, 66% disapprove."

Bad numbers for Obama given it is "adults", but what's up with Kansas having the same numbers like IA and WI ?

Iowa changed dramtically because they found a lot more Republicans this time, and a lot less Democrats, so that change is probably solely because of party ID.

Wisconsin actually had a more favorable party ID for the Dems, but the fact that Obama is down 35/61 among Indies is what is dragging him there.

HAH! 

I KNEW that's was coming!  Ok I didnt know but I suspected it.  Seriously.  Anytime rasmussen moves into unchartered territory, Gallup always seems to counter it purposely by jumping up a bit.

What's with that?

Democrats have a serious choice to make.  Will they simply cut Obama off from them much like they did to Carter in 1978 and blur the differences between themselves and Republican on most issues, or will they tie themselves to him, hoping that he recovers?

Roll Eyes

It's still three years to re-election. We don't have to start sweating until after Midterm elections. What approval ratings are this early in a presidential term is quite irrelevant on election day. In September 2001 Bush had 90 % approval, yet he didn't win a landslide re-election.

So yeah, we're tying ourselves to him hoping he recovers. Not a serious or tough choice at all.

The midterm elections are what I am talking about.  If Democrats lose the House in 2010, Obama is basically a dead duck.  He will probably get reelected, but he will run so far to the right that it wont matter.

Oh well then I understand.

I however strongly doubt that the Democrats will loose the house. The Republicans will probably make gains (relativly big gains if  Obama is unpoular in 2010) but not enough to conquer congress agian. The Republicans approval ratings are not raising when Obama's falls after all.
