That was more the Democrats fault for losing by nominating a bad candidate tied too much to Carter; it would be like the GOP nominating Dick Cheneya.  Mondale actually had a lead in the January Gallup polls.  Gary Hart might have beaten Reagan, extramarital affair aside (or at least made it a close race).

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 49%, -1.

Disapprove 51%, +2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 30%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 45%, +3.

There is still a bad sample in there; it should be totally out by tomorrow.

A bad good sample is what he means.  I'm not too sure that 49-51 is wrong.  I would bet more on 46-47 in reality, but Obama's been campaigning and typically that is a good thing for him.

Nobody could have beaten Reagan in 1984. The country had rebounded strongly from a recession and he had strong approval ratings.

Considering the cnn exit polls and assuming the fact the republican candidate is a good one (not sarah palin...), obama would have losen if presidential election was yesterday.

Rasmussen in month before election consistently showed Republicans 3-4 points stronger than they ended up.

To be expected, I suspect the President's approval numbers will not approach 50% until after the State of the Union address.

There is some variability, as seen in the past week, so I thing a 50% mark may be hit again.  He won't hold it beyond a three day period.

The last time that Obama had numbers at or above 50% over a more than three day period was September 27, 2009.  Even the last State of the Union did not produce it.

Nearly every single pollster had the Republicans up by 3-4 points.  It wasn't just Rasmussen.  What's your point?

He's referring to the fact that Rasmussen polls overestimated the Republicans by 3-4 points. Consistently.

No, I believe a 50 mark will be hit again - certainly. His work with the now much more Republican congress will improve his numbers, so I would expect to see modest improvement above his current numbers after the first "major" legislative achievement of this new congress. Next spring perhaps. The state of the union this year could potentially improve his numbers I believe, if he shows some humility, responsibility, and confidence to fix the unemployment numbers. If his state of the union is reminiscent of the 2008 Barack Obama, and not the 2010 Barack Obama, I believe it could help him out a lot.

The American people did not elect either Barack Obama or John Boehner to repeal heathcare reform.  Only around 10-15% of the electorate thought that healthcare was a major issue this year. The American people elected John Boehner and the Republicans because the economy hasn't recovered yet - not because they are angry with a healthcare law that won't go into effect until the next midterm elections.

If John Boehner puts his effort into repealing "Obamacare" I would expect a swing back to the Democrats in 2012.

Nate Silver has SurveyUSA at #1.

So even if you want to slam Rasmussen, SurveyUSA's numbers were worse for Obama because they polled his favorable rating.  Of course, some of the Republican hacks here don't like SurveyUSA.
