The most recent poll for Alabama shows a 58% approval rating. That may be counter-intuitive.

I love how liberals hate Reagan, but always want to compare themselves to him.

You mean the same way conservative politicians compare themselves with FDR, Truman and JFK?

Can't seem to find a poll like that. There was a poll with Obama at 60% approval of Alabama once, but that was right around inauguration day. The newest poll I found was 48% app, 49% disapproval, which I figure is probably the one actually shown in your map.

Here is the poll, like it or not. I am not familiar with the polling agency, but until someone discredits it I go with it, just as I go with some polls that suggest that Colorado is weak in support for Obama:

Alabama (Anzalone-Liszt Research (D) for Artur Davis, 600 LV, May 5-9)Sad

"58 percent of voters approve of Obama's performance, including 46 percent of white voters.  In addition, 87 percent of white Democrats and 57 percent of independents approve of Obama’s performance."

http://www.arturdavis2010.com/release_details.asp?id=65

Interesting, because the last Alabama poll by SUSA (600 adults) had Obama at only 48%.

http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=c643766a-9eb3-42a5-a1ce-38215e0aa02b

It's almost a month old, but one poll a month from Alabama is about the most that anyone can expect.

Artur Davis is running for a Congressional seat in 2010 as a Democrat.

Actually, he currently holds a Congressional seat. He's running for Governor.

It's still a poll.
I don't know your standard for including polls here, and care not whether it is included or not, but his statement appears to have been correct. You might admit as much, too.

Well, if we're going to be cross-comparing pollsters, indiscriminately suborning uni polls, and juxtaposing polls conducted months apart as if it were a current snapshot...what the hell, Artur Davis's polling team can come on board too! Tongue

Transport workers is kind of surprising, since bus/subway/taxi drivers would generally be working class and/or minority, I'd think.

There was a SurveyUSA Alabama poll which would obviously be more credible than a published "internal" poll.

It would be interesting to see some more polls for Southern states.

Arizona is bizarre. Was the poll an outlier? Is the abnormally conservative Phoenix the reason? Or is there bitterness over McCain's defeat?

Another surprise is Colorado. As a resident, I can see Obama having these approvals, but I don't think it's likely.

Those approval ratings are getting old, and they surprise me even more than do the astonishingly-high approval ratings for Obama in much of the South. The state most similar to either of them in politics (Nevada) gives a strong positive approval for Obama.

Obama would probably lose Colorado with a 50-50 split of the popular vote, but win Arizona, which McCain won by a margin smaller than the usual benefit of a Favorite Son effect.

That 59% from Quinnipiac was nationally, not in NJ.

And people think Obama can win over Arizona in 2012 and hold onto Colorado?  Doubt that, I think Obama will flip Missouri and South Dakota before the other two according to the polls.

Yes, because of one approval rating poll, Obama will lose Colorado.

Stop overanalyzing the approval ratings. You're not helping yourselves become decent political analysts; you're just looking like fools.

That one Colorado poll was also highly questionable.  Do you think only 23% of Hispanics really approve of Obama there?
