New polls in California:



"Adults" would give a borderline "7", and the other two average 60% one for Registered Voters and one for "Likely Voters", whatever the latter is.

I must say I'm enjoying the rationalizations for his dropping numbers more than this thread couple months ago - a circle jerk over how high his numbers are.

With that said I'm sure his approvals will rebound sometime over the next 3 years...maybe.

There's something simplistic asking job approval.  It'd be more illuminative to ask if one's opinion of the job Obama is doing has changed, let them specify why if so and categorize the answers.  I suppose one poll shows Obama's job approval among white, working class dropped in response to Obama's comments on the Gates arrest thing.  If true, that frankly seems retarded to me.

The president would have been wise to have passed over the Gates issue when it was raised at his press conference. The Right, no doubt, will be doing its damdest to fan its flames given that they have everything to gain, politically, by doing so given the extent to which their shabby record in government is threatened by this most enlightened pragmatically moderate (center-left) of presidents. Not to mention all the scaremongering coming forth on healthcare and energy. Surprising as it may seem, it's not in this president's, or his party's, political interest to make things worse for himself/themselves, his/their country or its people. The ideological nature of America obviously affords Republicans more of a pass

The House in passing pay-go, recently, has, at least, committed itself moving forward to fiscal responsibility which is more than can be said for the other lot, who should never be forgiven their whims and follies which, radically, altered the trajectory of the fiscal health, that of budget surplus, of the nation -  for the worst. That would have come in useful to combat this bad ass mother of an economic downturn. It's clearly now a matter for the Senate to pass.  At the end of the day, it all needs to paid for. The only Republican, of late, who understood that was Bush 41 - and he was effectively crucified by many on the Right. I've no beef with pragmatic conservatives, but those beholden to dogma really need incarcerating in their Ivory Towers, where they can do no harm. And they can take them "Tea-Baggers" with them

If this president succeeds it will be a triumph of rationalism Smiley

Probably due to the deficit spending and the over optimism when he sold the stimulus package.

Historically people have always been concerned about deficit spending, even when it didn't make sense compared to other things they supported, no matter what happened. Polls going back to FDR's terms in office showed America "concerned about the deficit" despite the fact that they elected FDR four times.

Just wanted to get that out there.

Probably due to the deficit spending and the over optimism when he sold the stimulus package.

One minute the president was being damned for being pessimistic, the next he's dammed for being optimistic. When it comes to deficits, the Republicans cannot take the high ground. Certainly not when you consider that Bush was bequeathed a robust economy that had created 23 million jobs along with a trajectory that projected a growing surplus only to bequeath the 'Great Recession' and an economy losing jobs at a rate not since that of 1981/82

Any rationalist understands that deficit reduction isn't a short-term option. It is something that will, of course, inevitability have to be confronted

Capitalism needs to be as much premised on security as it is liberty. The role of government is to, effectively, enhance positive, but restrain negative, freedom

I dread to think of the consequences of the major financial institutions being allowed to collapse even if bailing-out errant behaviour does look like rewarding said behaviour. But doing nothing isn't an option. Not when there are millions of livelihoods and families; indeed, communities, at risk. And when I hear the likes of Palin championing the freedom to fail, it doesn't inspire confidence in Republicans if they are of that mindset

RAS today:

50/49 Approval

30/38 Strongly Approve/Strongly Disapprove

The crosstabs don’t look much different than yesterday, so I am going to assume that the change in party ID was more favorable to Democrats.

Even though people think he's doing bad on the Economy, Health care and the deficit people say they would rather have Obama doing the job then the Republicans.
