Rassy

48/52

We've seen a 2-3 point rise on Rass and 5 points on Gallup over the past few days and RCP and Pollster graphs show a pretty noticable jump. The president's obviously had a better week than other recent ones.

I'm going to make a modification: orange is for polls that I consider indefensible because of their age  and because good evidence in surrounding states suggest that they are worthless:



Rationales:

1. South Carolina and Tennessee are much less Democratic than North Carolina and Georgia.

2. South Dakota is much less Democratic than Montana.

3. Utah is... Utah.

Hmm, he definitely seems to be getting a bit of a boost. That's good news going into this speech and whatnot.

I was reading somewhere that Obama's made a net gain of 17 on Gallup in a week. Definately some momentum building.

Yeah, I just checked. The article I was reading was obviously wrong. :/

Since the polls from August 26-28 (50/42), Obama's made a net gain of 9 points.

In my opinion, his approval ratings are recovering after the town hall protests and Republicans bashing him, if anything.

You'll see a real boost of momentum hopefully after his big health care speech.

As I recall they were about 62% positive. it's not likely that those stick. Nothing was said of NE-01 or NE-03. Nebraska was polled statewide recently, and I cut NE-02 back a little.

Close to where Bush was 8 years ago and he didn't even propose a health care plan.

One thing seems reasonably certain: Obama is not about to get a spike in his approval ratings analogous to that of Dubya eight years ago!

That's his job approval, not his favorability.  Should read:

Approve: 53% (-2)
Disapprove: 40% (+2)

I really think we should ignore these numbers unless there is some really important news.  They fluctuate.

Maybe reacting to the news (Friday) that the rate of unemployment jumped from 9.4% to 9.7%

Maybe it's because of the school speech that will be shown soon. Think of the children and how Barack Obama will mold their little feeble minds!
