Wow, 1,000 days! Time sure does go by fast.

Gallup:

Approve: 42% +2

Disapprove: 50% -2

Still seems to be fluctuating on his lows on Gallup.

I'm looking to see if Obama starts tracking consistently below 40% on Gallup.

I doubt it will happen. There are plenty of pro-recession Republicans around here who will push his approval ratings up should we double dip.

We already had it over the summer.  If it occurs within a year of the election, it is probably fatal.

-4 and +4, respectively.

As I said, I'm waiting for it to consistently be below 40%.

Wow.. a tad volatile, even for Gallup Smiley

Gallup works best with a 30 day rolling average.. which says +41/-51 => -10 or so.

"Strongly Approve" is at 19%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 41%, u.



I guess around 20% of Americans will disapprove of Obama instinctively (just as they approved of Bush til the bitter end..) and 20% are pretty much committed to him (or are Democratic partisans).

That leaves 20% of people who are right of center, more likely to  disapprove but possible to win over; 20% of people who are left of center, who approve of Obama generally; and 20% who are really centrist swing voters.

Right now, Obama is not doing too well with the center, and certainly not well with  the  center-right. We'll see what happens in a year, though.

I find it rather sad that Obama's approval is so mediocre and yet, Republicans haven't been able to catch him.  I guess it speaks volumes about the quality of the candidates this time around.  Oh well.

"Strongly Approve" is at 19%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 42%, +1.

Since March, Obama's strongly approved numbers have declined rather strongly.  They were low, but they got lower.  Right now, they are running 6-10 points the pre-midterm numbers of a year ago.

So, should we start checking to see if Obama's disapproval can stay below 50%? Wink

Just for reference, when did President Reagan's approval ratings start increasing enough to ensure his reelection?
