There could be a bad sample with low "strongly approve" numbers.

I thought I'd do a comparison with January's Rasmussen numbers:

For January, 2010, the range has been:

Approve:  44-50% 

Median:  47.0%

Disapprove:  50-55%

Median:  52.5%

Strongly Approve:  24-33%

Median:  28.5%

Strongly Disapprove:  39-43%

Median:  41.0%

For February, 2010, the range has been:

Approve:  43-50% 

Median:  46.5%

Disapprove:  49-56%

Median:  52.5%

Strongly Approve:  22-35%

Median:  28.5%

Strongly Disapprove:  37-43%

Median:  40.0%

Ironically, the numbers that have shown the most variability are Obama's "Strongly Approve" rating in both months.

4. Jimmy Carter.  The weak challenger to Gerald Ford. He accomplished little as President because he was always an outsider who tried to bring Atlanta ways to Washington.  He lost to someone who exuded confidence in his own abilities and presented himself as more moderate than his early reputation.

Obama was and remains very much a political insider, and his political skills look more like those of Ronald Reagan. He has not tried to impose Chicago political ways upon Washington. Carter doesn't look like much of a comparison to Obama.



Jimmy Carter was a member of the Trilateral Commission, who had strong DC connections and populated the Executive Branch with old LBJ supporters.  Further, he ran one of the best Democratic campaigns in decades in 1976.

Yet he still refused to play by Congress' rules, which is part of the reason he had so much trouble with his agenda.

Don't confuse bad political decisions with being an outsider.

President Obama is not in campaign mode, and he does not have his political apparatus running.  He will have it ready to run at the least for two important Senate races in those two states. He owes much to Harry Byrd, and he is not going to let Harry Byrd go down without a fight.



Actually, he is.  It was reported last week.

"Strongly Approve" is at 22, unchanged.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 43%, +1.

Right now, Obama's "Total Approve," and "Strongly Approved," are tied for their lowest numbers in his presidency.  His "Total Disapproved" number is tied for the highest.

Note that "Strongly Approved" number has remained the same for three days, which could represent a bad sample.

These numbers are starting to look brutal, if they hold.

They mostly resemble Reagan`s numbers at this point, who was also at 45% in March of '82.

So nothing to worry about yet, especially considering the horrible crop of Presidential candidates the Republicans currently have.

And Carter's were higher.  I think that Reagan's disapproval numbers were lower.

Approval ratings for Congress are far lower -- and especially for the Republican Party .

Fixed.

Actually the Republicans have held a lead on the generic congressional ballot since late June of 2009.

Any challenge to President Obama from the Republican Party will come from either a current or former State governor or a US Senator.  How popular some right-wing Republican is in his own  right-leaning State will matter little a state near the middle of the spectrum (i.e., Virginia, Colorado, Ohio, Florida, Iowa... not his own)

Which has nothing to do with your claim.
