That is if Americans approve of him "as a person".

Don't ask me what the difference between this and the 61% favorable rating is though ...

Aren't favourable/unfavourable polls asking whether you like him "as a person"?

Yeah of course, that's why I said "Don't ask me what the difference is" ... Tongue

Maybe people are more inclined to think about the job he's doing when asked about favorability, rather than just the black/white definition if Obama's a good or bad person ...

So, "Favorability" could be a mixture of his personality and job approval.

New Jersey (PPP)Sad

53% Approve
39% Disapprove

PPP surveyed 552 New Jersey voters from July 24th to 27th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-4.2%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

I still think Obama will be a popular president. I'm also thinking that his lowest rate may be 45 pc but he will, like every president before, regain popularity. I think that he's calculating what he's doing and BTW he is smarter than Bush or Clinton.
He has and will always have a strong popularity among Blacks and Liberals, having 2/3 or at least 1/2 of the latino support and at least 40 pc of the White support.
American Electoral Landscape is changing and the only descent republican for the future is Charlie Crist

I whole heartedly agree with that. Future Senator Crist should run in 2016.

Why so His scandals can become national and destroy any chances for the GOP to win  in 2016 or 2020?

Crist has too many skeletons in the closet.

That, believe it or not, is 1-point net approval gain Smiley on PPP's last NJ poll (July 1, 2009)

This poll is encouraging re-healthcare and energy. The pollsters offered respondents a choice between the Democrat and the Republican "message" on healthcare and energy, as to which they most agreed with, and Democrats win the debate on healthcare (51-42) and energy (52-40)

Interestingly, while the Democratic Party edges out the Republican Party in terms of who is doing a good job (4.4-3.9), Republicans lead 42-43 on the generic ballot

I'm pretty impressed with the high personal favorability of the president because likeability, at that level, were it to hold through his presidency, will be a huge electoral asset, especially if his Republican opponent were to have a deficit on that score

Average them and you get something impressive nationally for Obama (54-44 or the like).  The strong disapproval ratings suggest that America itself is as polarized late in July 2009 as it was in November 2008, suggesting that those who thought him a very poor choice in November 2008 still think him such.
