A poll is a poll?

Not really. Junk is junk.

The reference was to the poll in Alabama commissioned by a teachers' union.

Oh ok, the way you wrote it, it read as if you was talking about the Rassy poll.

I think it might be potentially a good thing for obama's presidency that his poll numbers have fallen back down to earth, it might keep  him from  getting a big head about his presidency hopefully it stop him from believing all the hype about him being the next FDR, JFK and Democratic Reagan all rolled into one and he can just get back worrying about effective manger of the country.

 a classic example of this would be when Clinton tanked in 1994, the Conservatives over reached and then Clinton came back stronger then ever in 1996.   
 
just something to ponder.

It should also be remembered that most President's approval ratings drop during the early part of their presidency.    Reagan's approval ratings dropped to something like 40%  as the economy tanked in his first two years.

YAWN

The state of the economy in 2012 will determine whether or not Obama is re-elected, not the health care reform debate of 2009.
True, BUT Obama's approval ratings in 2009 will effect the outcome of the 2009 health care debate, which in turn will effect the 2010 Congressional elections.

ARG seems to have copied PPP's numbers:

Adults:

52% Approve
42% Disapprove

Registered Voters:

52% Approve
42% Disapprove

Among Republicans (26% of adults registered to vote in the survey and 23% of all adults in the survey), 6% approve of the way Obama is handling his job and 94% disapprove. Among Democrats (44% of adults registered to vote in the survey and 40% of all adults in the survey), 86% approve and 8% disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job. Among independents (30% of adults registered to vote in the survey and 27% of all adults in the survey), 41% approve and 48% disapprove of the way Obama is handling his job as president.

The results presented here are based on 1,100 completed telephone interviews conducted among a nationwide random sample of adults 18 years and older. The interviews were completed August 16 through 19, 2009. The theoretical margin of error for the total sample is plus or minus 2.6 percentage points, 95% of the time, on questions where opinion is evenly split.

As of January 1993, Reagan was at 35% approval in Gallup. Of course, the economy rebounded and unemployment sharply fell between then and November 1984. The supply side tax cuts of 1981 were projected, by computer simulation, to see the economy grow by 5% in 1982, but it contracted by 2.2%. Keynesian economists, no doubt, would credit deficit spending with the recovery

I think it's safe to say that Obama's approval rating is between 50-52%.

Based off the current polls, this is my prediction for 2012.

DEM: 276
REP: 251

Look for Obama's approval rating to lower more then steady.

These numbers aren't even believable going by Rasmussen's own suspect national numbers. I'm sure he'll have a nice, saliva filled discussion with Hannity over them though.

Even if you account for Rasmussen's deviation from the average, disapproves still outnumber approves (I think).

Don't even bother arguing. If a poll isn't to a liberals liking, it's skewed...

Zogby (INTERNET POLL)Sad

45% Approve
51% Disapprove

43% Excellent/Good
56% Fair/Poor

While this latest poll shows Democrats continue to overwhelmingly approve of Obama's job performance (84%), just 6% of Republicans say the same. Most independents (59%) now disapprove of the job the President is doing.

The Zogby Interactive survey of 2,530 likely voters nationwide was conducted Aug. 18-20, 2009, and carries a margin of error of +/- 2.0 percentage points.

Yeah for some reason I doubt that Obama has higher approval ratings in Georgia than Florida...

Twitters about the PPP Arkansas poll, currently in the field:

"Ark. poll is looking brutal for Democrats, but Mike Beebe still looks to have the highest approval of anyone we've polled on nationally this year.

Arkansas is definitely the birtherest state to date...it's been fun but I think we'll stop asking about it after this poll

Public Policy Polling (D) is currently in the field in the state that gave us Bill Clinton, and their survey includes this question: "Between Rush Limbaugh and Barack Obama, who do you think has the better vision for America?"

So far, PPP communications director Tom Jensen tells me, Limbaugh is winning by about ten points. The numbers could potentially narrow between now and when the survey is finished over the weekend, but Jensen is sure that Limbaugh will end up winning."

Right. President Obama  has discovered to his surprise that the GOP/Hard Right neither rolls over and plays dead nor plays by Queensbury rules. His election and later events have not convinced those who voted against him that he is a suitable President.  Special interests consider any change in the so-called American way of delivering and paying for health care a threat unless such guarantees higher profits. Just because he likes a civil debate and rational discussion of the issues that allows a workable compromise does not mean that the Other Side wants such. The Other Side might want instead to turn up the invective as its best chance to undo the "damage" of the 2008 election.

BAHAHAHAHA! That's hilarious!

The sad thing is, a pollster asked that question in Oklahoma a couple of months ago, and they actually favored Limbaugh. Seriously.
