Also, Texas Approval Ratings for Obama by PPP:

45% Approve
46% Disapprove

PPP polled 1,409 likely voters from February 18th to 20th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-2.6%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Seems to be the first poll that shows a negative rating for Obama ...

Biggest ones left: Michigan, Georgia, Arizona, Indiana, Maryland, and Colorado.   

Maybe sooner or later we'll get a Georgia poll by Strategic Vision and an Arizona poll by BRC or KAET, but I think it's unlikely that we'll see a poll from the other states, allthough there's a slight chance that Selzer may poll Michigan for the Detroit Free Press.

Selzer is really good; it got Indiana and Missouri right in 2008. Strategic Vision has a GOP bias, so I would have to give it a grain of salt as I gave PPP with its Democratic bias... 

Heck, Montana would be interesting because it was a swing state.
Approval ratings just came in for Georgia, a swing state into which Obama put much effort until September (when the GOP gave a scare):



... and we get new numbers, if no 'new' states polled Declines, largely, but not huge ones or where one wouldn't expect them.

It looks as the GOP has its work cut out for itself if it is to achieve anything in the 2012 election. Note that Obama barely won Florida, and his approval rating in Florida approaches 70%. Right now it seems that any Republican who had to challenge Obama today for the Presidency would be the new Alf Landon... with apologies to Landon in case the personalities aren't the same.

Mercifully for the GOP, the election still isn't being held today. 


Adjustments made. Yellow indicates approval under 50%.

Obama has a net +10 improvement in two days, says Gallup.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/113980/Gallup-Daily-Obama-Job-Approval.aspx

Approve: 65%
Disapprove: 21%
Don't Know: 14%

Clearly, Obama should just give a fancy prime time speech every month, and he'll be popular forever.

Latest DailyKos/R2000 weekly update:

71% Favorable
25% Unfavorable

A total of 2400 adults nationally were interviewed by telephone. A cross-section of calls was made into each state in the country in order to reflect the adult population nationally. The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 2% percentage points.

This guy is so popular, it's insane.  I was reading some of the comments on his decision not to withdraw from Iraq at CNN and the same people who were praising him for opposing the war are now calling Pelosi names for disagreeing with the Chosen One.  I'm so glad now I didn't vote for this liar (I voted for Nader).

He's ending the war and its spending by August 2010 and all troops will be out by 2011, is CNN spinning this or something?

Well Pelosi and other congressional leaders believe it should happen earlier, something I agree with (and something Obama based much of his campaign on as well).

http://politicalticker.blogs.cnn.com/2009/02/27/democrats-voice-concerns-on-obamas-iraq-drawdown-plan/

As you can see most of the people making comments are saying things like "I LUUVV da PrezidenT" and are asking for Pelosi's head.

Obama always made it clear that he would listen to the generals, and get out as carefully as we carelessly got in.

Are you seriously posting verbatim lines from Obama campaign speeches as your argument?

All Obama's Iraq plan does is abide by the SOFA signed before he ever took office.  The Iraq stuff is the least interesting news story of the month unless you've been paying literally no attention all this time.

Just for the heck of it (and I know I'm going to get lambasted for it) this Tennesseean will tell the racist joke he heard about Obama:

Why is Obama afraid to go to sleep?


Because the last N***a who had a dream got shot.

That's the first one I heard too! Actually, it was my latino boyfriend who told me, and he's the biggest Obama supporter ever, so I can't really say making racist jokes about Obama means you dislike him.

Right. Because so many polls have him higher than 60%. I guess you want to add a few to the NBC/WSJ poll too. What about the Cook Political Report? Why not even Gallup while you're at it? Give me a break dude. Obama is at 60%.
