South Dakota (Research 2000/DailyKos):

47% Favorable
45% Unfavorable

The Research 2000 South Dakota Poll was conducted from March 30 through April 1, 2009. A total of 600 likely voters who vote regularly in state elections were interviewed statewide by telephone.

http://www.dailykos.com/statepoll/2009/4/1/SD/280

I've just seen this on DKos now, i'm pretty suprised that Obama only have a net +2 in South Dakota. I know it went to McCain by +10 points, but still.

Now add South Dakota, with 3EV. 

The biggest states in electoral votes for which there are no polls are Maryland, Indiana, Colorado, Louisiana, and Oklahoma.

Well, actually there was a Maryland poll, but it was conducted January 5-9, before Obama was sworn in as President.

The results from this Gonzales Research survey:

Do you approve or disapprove of the way President-elect Barack Obama is handling his transition?

80% Approve
11% Disapprove

That's what an 80% approval rating looks like in Maryland. Of course I figure that Maryland would be about 70%, and I don't qualify as a pollster. But I still have to go with this:



What people predict about the baseball season around April Fool's Day will mean nothing during the World Series.

I doubt Hitler's approval ratings were ever as high as Obama's. The most the Nazi Party ever got was like 44%.

Germans are gullible people.  Remember, these are the people that elected Hitler.

Yep, and German-Americans voted overwhelmingly for Willkie and Dewey to protest the war against Germany. Kind of sad and scary at the same time.

Hitler's approvals at the peak of his popularity, 1935-6, were probably well into the upper 80s. Not that anybody polled, of course.

Germans are gullible people.  Remember, these are the people that elected Hitler.

They aren't so gullible as they were seventy years ago. They aren't the psychological primitives that Sigmund Freud exposed -- the sorts of people who couldn't recognize what a fraud Hitler was -- anymore. They are no longer the people that one can most lead with a manual that might as well have been titled "How to control people through deception and misplaced pride".  

I'd be more scared of the Germans if they admired Dubya and loathed Obama. Wouldn't you?

"I had hoped for more from Obama" 12% say yes
"Obama's policies are the same as Bush's" 7% say yes.

Fitting.

American Jews voted heavily for Obama. What's wrong with Judaism, anyway?

(No, I am not Jewish, but I certainly respect Jews for their achievements and their comparatively-few pathologies. For one thing, Jews never persecuted my Quaker, Huguenot, Mennonite, or Moravian ancestors. For another, they were the white people most likely to support the Civil Rights Movement and did not participate in segregationist politics.

I'm not black, either, by the way).

I dont think Rasmussen can poll Hispanics very well. He has Obama at 28/72 approval among them. LOL

They also were for the Union and voted for LaFollete. Wink

But yeah mostly I dislike German-American political views.

Yeah, it's only the nazi-loving Germans that approve of Obama by 9-1.

And not the Italian, the French, the British or Spanish or even the fascist Canadians ...

Arizona (WestGroup Research, never heard of it ...):

41% Approve
29% Disapprove

The poll has a 5 percent margin of error.

http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/stories/2009/03/30/daily77.html

Newsweek/Princeton Research (April 1-2):

61% Approve
27% Disapprove

Hardly a surprise. Even the Republicans, of the non-Michelle-Bachmann variety, admit that his European trip has been a success until now.
