It's astonishing that the number of traitors (2%) is already this high.

What's Hitler's approval rating in Germany? 2%?

Let's remember that the superb German intelligence services stated clearly that Saddam Hussein had no WMD programs and had no connection to international terrorism before Dubya invaded Iraq. Also, George W. Bush put his hands on Chancellor Angela Merkel once, behavior best described as repugnant.

I figure that Dubya was (and remains) extremely unpopular in Germany -- and Obama has a huge reservoir of good will.

Rasmussen Reports and pollster.com shows Obama's approval dipping to his lowest yet.  Unsurprisingly, this thread has been relatively quiet today.

Here is a handy-dandy chart:

Obama is now less popular than Eisenhower, Kennedy, Nixon, Carter, Bush 41, and Bush 43 at this point in their Presidencies.

Go Obama go!

Yes I know that this is fairly old, but I decided to make a graph of Obama's approval ratings in his first month (January 20 to February 19 2009 inclusively) according to Rasmussen Reports:

Img


It shows net approval (total approve minus total disapprove), and the information was collected from http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/obama_approval_index_history.

Also interesting is this article (which has a link to the previously mentioned Web page): http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll.

No statistical significance. One can say nothing, so one might as well remain quiet.

What are you talking about, 'no statistical significance'?  It's inherently statistically significant because it's a statistic!

I could shut up about the whole thing.  But then, why have the thread at all?

I look at the curve, look at the wild scatter of data points, I look at the regression line and I find the regression line over roughly 50 days more precise than the data suggest. In effect I see no cause to believe that Obama has been gaining or losing popularity (which I think is your point), although I see significant difference in popularity at a similar time between Obama and either Ronald Reagan or John F. Kennedy.

No, I don't have the tools for an analysis of regression at my disposal now because I don't have the raw data and I don't have the computer program available for it. But I have seen plenty of random scatters, and very few of them give an exactly flat line of regression.

There is no reason to believe that the support for Obama is anything other than flat. Over time there will be more data and there will be less randomness. There is plenty of time between now and November 2012 for events and deeds to shape the regression "line".

Ipsos/McClatchy:

65% Approve
29% Disapprove

Obama's approval rating, for example, is 89 percent among Democrats and 25 percent among Republicans. Among independents, his approval rating is 58 percent.

These are some of the findings of a McClatchy-Ipsos poll conducted last Thursday through Monday. For the survey, Ipsos interviewed a nationally representative, randomly selected sample of 1,070 people 18 and older across the United States. With a sample of this size, the results are considered accurate within 3.04 percentage points, 19 times out of 20, of what they would have been had the entire adult population in the U.S. been polled.

Delaware (Public Policy Polling):

63% Approve
31% Disapprove

His reviews are pretty polarized along party lines with 89% of Democrats but only 25% of Republicans expressing support for the job hes doing. Independents are pretty much divided, with 49% giving him good marks compared to 43% who are not.

PPP surveyed 782 Delaware voters between March 5th and 8th. The surveys margin of error is +/-3.5%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.
