ABC-Washington Post:

Approval 49%
Disapproval 47%

To some extent, Griffin was in many ways elected as a War time President because he viewed, not as the guy you want a beer with, but the guy you would go to a bar fight with.

I'm not crazy by the way.

This should scare Republicans:

Note that this is among likely voters in the Republican caucuses in Iowa:


Quote
Q25 Do you have a favorable or unfavorable opinion
of the Republican establishment?

Favorable........................................................ 34%
Unfavorable .................................................... 34%
Not sure .......................................................... 31%

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/2011/PPP_Release_IA_1218925.pdf

It shouldn't scare them because we all should know by now that those Tea Party crazies hate any form of establishment (but, ironically, remain loyal Republican voters).

Teaparty folk support the Constitution with vigor, for instance. Your statement makes no sense. Their objection to the Republican "establishment" is not that it exists, but, rather, that its values are antithetical to Teaparty values.

The new CBS poll has

47% Approve
44% Disapprove

...

That would bring his RCP approval rating to 46.6-48.9.

If we include the Reason poll from above, then it would be 46.9-48.6

The word "establishment" only gets 34% disapproval among members of a group built around being against the establishment.  I don't see anything remotely troublesome for the GOP there.

So after two days on the job...

After two days on the job, 25 percent of Kentuckians already disapprove. Honeymoon over?

No, I'd say the honeymoon is over because the press is already giving him a hard time over something silly (not letting enough reporters/cameras in on that second swearing in).  Tongue

lol, nice.

Meh. Up by two points, down by two points. Gallup is tetchy enough that I wouldn't read that much into it.

Sorta. People with strong family structures tend to be more Republican, and, as a result, travel away from home more often during the Christmas season.
