America is starting to realize why we elected Republicans- they didn't screw things up.

Ahem...



I think that would be more impressive if the Obama numbers didn't go off the chart.

America is starting to realize why we elected Republicans- they didn't screw things up. Obama is a disaster, even by liberal standards. The (dis)approval ratings are starting to reflect that. I wouldn't be surprised if he reached Truman levels of unpopularity.

So why did George W. Bush reach levels of unpopularity not known since Herbert Hoover?

Let's see...

1. He drew the right conclusions from intel available before 9/11.

2. He told us unvarnished truth about the weapons programs of Saddam Hussein and his regime's connections to the 9/11 attack.

3. He diverted troops from  Afghanistan for a brilliant adventure in Iraq.

4. He pulled an impressive stunt of "flying" onto an aircraft carrier to a banner reading "MISSION ACCOMPLISHED" even if the mission was far from accomplished.

5. He used formulations like "Healthy Forests" to describe a situation (clear-cutting) that would ensure that there would be no forest.

6. He promoted solid economic growth based on wild speculation and subprime lending.

7. He delegated powers to the Vice-President that nobody realized existed in the Constitution (because they did not exist).

8. He competently managed the relief effort for Hurricane Katrina.

9. In 2006, he successfully convinced American voters that he needed more political support through the election of Republican members of the House and Senate to vote out Democrats.

10. He let Karl Rove exercise some powers of government limited by the Constitution  to government employees who can be fired for malfeasance of duty, elected officials, and persons appointed by  the President and subject to Congressional approval, thus allowing a Party Boss to be a de facto branch of government.

(Irony intended).

OK -- in all seriousness -- Dubya was the WRONG Republican in 2000.

The 'bots now give Obama 44% approval and 55% disapproval. Gallup has it 49%/44%.


BTW, pbrower2a, while Bush had the highest disapproval on record (in Gallup), his approval rating were higher than Truman's, both at the low points and when each left office.  Obama's disapproval numbers the highest on record (in Gallup) of any elected president at this point.

Of course, if those charts were the other way around, Democrats would be complaining that the rich shareholders were the only ones benefiting from the Bush Administration...

Probably, but it's a stupid measure of success either way.

Rasmussen:  44% Approve, 56% Disapprove

Gallup:  50% Approve, 43% Disapprove

The 'bots give Obama the highest disapproval numbers since December.  The December numbers improved after three days, so that looks like in just might have been a bad sample.

The bounce was essentially technical. Come bak to the reality.

I know this has been observed before, namely during last year's campaign, but the past couple of weeks provide further evidence for another pet theory of mine.

Rasmussen's polls lead in movement (whether up or down), Gallup follows usually a few days after.

New polls, Colrorado, Nevada, and Ohio:




No category changes, but consistent with roughly 50/50 nationwide.

Michigan and Virginia would be very welcome.

Don't forget that the GOP "brand" is still poison on economic matters:

How often is Obama approval stronger in Ohio than in Pennsylvania?

RAS changed the link. He accidentally posted the general election numbers there last night. I think they'll be out in the morning.

Rasmussen Obama Numbers:

Approve

48%
   
Disapprove

51%

It looks like Obama might have improved fractionally in January.  However, since November, his numbers have been exceptionally stable.

If someone actually posted today's Rasmussen poll of Democratic voters alone as a measure of Obama support, then one would get this result:



75% support anywhere other than DC would be spurious.

This, of course, is the right one, although 44% approval in Pennsylvania seems low:
