Wow, 1,000 days! Time sure does go by fast.

Gallup:

Approve: 42% +2

Disapprove: 50% -2

Still seems to be fluctuating on his lows on Gallup.

It makes me happy Republicans will never be able to say they defeated Obama. Never ever.

I'm looking to see if Obama starts tracking consistently below 40% on Gallup.

I doubt it will happen. There are plenty of pro-recession Republicans around here who will push his approval ratings up should we double dip.

We already had it over the summer.  If it occurs within a year of the election, it is probably fatal.

The real scandal in Washington is not the bribery, corruption, or sex. It is how poorly we are governed. That has begun to change with the election Donald Trump.

Wow.. a tad volatile, even for Gallup Smiley

Gallup works best with a 30 day rolling average.. which says +41/-51 => -10 or so.

Looks like Gallup is a huge outlier ...

I guess around 20% of Americans will disapprove of Obama instinctively (just as they approved of Bush til the bitter end..) and 20% are pretty much committed to him (or are Democratic partisans).

That leaves 20% of people who are right of center, more likely to  disapprove but possible to win over; 20% of people who are left of center, who approve of Obama generally; and 20% who are really centrist swing voters.

Right now, Obama is not doing too well with the center, and certainly not well with  the  center-right. We'll see what happens in a year, though.

I find it rather sad that Obama's approval is so mediocre and yet, Republicans haven't been able to catch him.  I guess it speaks volumes about the quality of the candidates this time around.  Oh well.

"Strongly Approve" is at 19%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 42%, +1.

Since March, Obama's strongly approved numbers have declined rather strongly.  They were low, but they got lower.  Right now, they are running 6-10 points the pre-midterm numbers of a year ago.

So, should we start checking to see if Obama's disapproval can stay below 50%? Wink

Just for reference, when did President Reagan's approval ratings start increasing enough to ensure his reelection?
