I don't think anyone, even the biggest partisan, plans on Barack being competitive in Texas, at least for the near future.  It just isn't going to happen.

Texas not competitive; Missouri has dropped to the fringe of competitiveness (if not dropping a category). New Hampshire makes a marginal change but drops a category.

LOL, I'm not really sure how Ohio and New Hampshire can have even approval ratings when Obama is -10 in Pennsylvania, but okay.

Do you see any particular reason for states to be trending away from Obama?

I have a feeling that Obama's bottomed out (for now) more green will crop up.

Not much is getting done and his proposals have been angering independents. Also, unemployment bites.

On Rasmussen's national poll, Obama's numbers have been reasonably stable.  Even taking into  account the SOTU bounce, his numbers have been within a 7 point range.

As I said before, there's a lot of congestion between his 2008 number 53% and the mid-40s (this translates slightly higher in an adults poll FWIW). 

It ain't gonna be taken down overnight - though the fact that the 53% was sliced through so easily last year is not the greatest sign for the long-term.

I suspect Minnesota or Oregon. New Mexico has a large Hispanic population, which hasn't trended away from Obama as fast as whites, so it could be, but I doubt it.

In few states does unemployment bite so hard as in Michigan. The Governorship is up for grabs because of the wretched economy.  Michigan is one of those that I was most looking for, and the result is a surprise. I would have expected Michigan to go the same direction as Pennsylvania.




A comment on Texas: late in 2009, states seemed  to be reverting toward a mean as polarization of approval ratings seemed to be approaching a mean. Texas and Michigan could be showing that when President Obama gets much exposure as a speaker, he demonstrates why people voted so decisively for him in Michigan and so decisively against him in Texas in 2008.  





Key:


<40% with Disapproval Higher: 70% Yellow (90% if 60% or higher disapproval)
40-44% with Disapproval Higher: 50% Yellow  
45-49% with Disapproval Higher: 30% Yellow
<50% with Approval Equal: 10% Yellow (really white)

<50%  Approval greater: 30% Green
50-55%: 40% Green
56-60%: 60% Green
>60%: 80% Green


Months:

A -  January     G -  July
B -  February   H -  August
C -  March        I -  September
D -  April          J  -  October
E -  May           K -  November
F -   June         L -   December

S - suspect poll (examples for such a qualification: strange crosstabs, likely inversion of the report (for inversions, only for polls above 55% or below 45%...  let's say Vermont 35% approval or Oklahoma 65% approval), and more than 10% undecided. Anyone who suggests that a poll is suspect must explain why it is suspect.

Z- no recent poll (maximum 180 days) before December 1, 2009 except Montana (November 2009), which rarely gets polled.

Who doesn't know about Michigan's unemployment? The problem with them is that many are unapologetically liberal. I hardly call 53% overwhelming support.

Some speculation on why President Obama isn't doing so well in polls in Pennsylvania:

The state has a contested Democratic primary for a US Senate seat. President Obama has nothing to gain and much to lose by choosing one Democratic candidate for the Senate over the other, and has stayed away from the state so that he can stay out of the race. Once the nomination is decided, President Obama will appear on occasion in Pennsylvania with the Democratic nominee for the Senate, and as Pennsylvanians see Obama the campaigner again, his approval rating will go back over 50%.

Rasmussen's Obama numbers:

Approve:

47%
   
Disapprove:

52%

Basically, since August 2, 2009, Obama's numbers have been 47% to 52.5%, +/- 3.5 points, on Rasmussen.

Excepting the SOTU bounce, and a slump right before Christmas, his numbers have been within a 47% to 53% within a +/- 3.0 point range since November 17, 2008, on Rasmussen.

I'd call that very stable, and say that they are very close to today's numbers.
