So assuming that these polls are beginning to have more of a predictive value, where would we say we are at this point?

Obama is certainly off his summer 2011 lows, and the economy looks like it is going to create jobs at a better pace than it did last year as well. With jobless claims at 370,000, we are roughly at a point where job creation can be strong enough to drop the unemployment rate.

At the same time, Europe looks really unstable, and so economic collapse can never be completely ruled out.

I would say, given presidential approval in the high 40s, we're in for either a 2004 or a 2000, in which one party wins by a nose.

Those numbers don't quite make since. This does feel a lot like 2004, actually...

Rasmussen 6/2:

Romney 48% Obama 44%
Obama Approval 46% Disapproval 53%

The first day reflecting the jobs report show movement against Obama. Next two days could be interesting.

Guys when will May's poor job creation report tank Obama's approval ratings? Its been nearly a week, I'm getting a little impatient here.

I don't know, but it's getting disgusting how America just laps up anything Obama, even with reality staring them in the face.

Well this sure is interesting:

Less Than Half in U.S. See Friday's Jobs Report as Negative, according to Gallup.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/155084/Less-Half-Friday-Jobs-Report-Negative.aspx

Despite extensive news coverage of what was widely portrayed as a disappointing government jobs report last Friday, Americans are about as likely to describe it as "mixed" (40%) as to say it is "negative" (42%), with a small minority characterizing it as "positive" (9%). But Americans who view the report as negative are more likely to say it was somewhat negative rather than very negative.

Oh, I understand Obama's campaign strategy now. Be SO bad and set the bar SO low that bad news is good news and Americans start to accept a new normal. Bravo, Mr. President--you will destroy the country.

Maybe Americans are beginning to realise that the alternative is a weak, unprincipled President controlled by a party of psychotic fascist maniacs.

Sure. And this strange little world looks a lot like Earth, 2012. Where Obama has nothing to show for three and a half years in office but Americans still love the guy. It is pretty strange, isn't it?

4.5 million private sector jobs created? The unemployment rate would be a full % lower were it not for the states going all European austerity on their workforces?

A better job creation rate than Bush, who squandered surpluses and the ultimate example that tax cuts don't pay for themselves?

Hey Hagrid, now you know how Democrats felt in 2004. A president that the other side hated somehow managed to win a second term in uncertain times. Karma's a bitch aint it?

Tongue

Both weren't exactly the best incumbents. It's sort of interesting though how I percieve their personal weaknesses to be total opposites. Bush's weakness was his percieved stupidity. But I think even Republicans will agree that Obama's an intelligent guy. Obama's weaknes, though, is the percieved lack of strength in his leadership. And I actually think the leadership issue was a plus for Bush in 2004. Bush didn't seem like a waffler.

It'll be interesting to see how it plays out.

I'm not sure how I feel about a Canadian calling my President "Mr. President."
