None of this matters.  Elections are not decided based on national approval ratings or national popular votes.  It is only electoral votes that matters and given current polling in the 12 states that matter, Romney has only a 16% chance of getting enough electoral votes to win.  NerdWallet's presidential election statistics page does the math very clearly: Romney has 181 safe votes & Obama has 201 so Romney needs 89 of 156 that are left and probably can't get them.  Approval ratings do not matter.

They become less important closer to the election, but they are still a good historical measure.

If Obama gets reelected how will his approval ratings look on the day of his 2nd swearing in?

Probably, again for historical comparisons, and if Rasmussen still publishes them.

If Romney is elected, I expect the a new thread on him.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/124922/Presidential-Job-Approval-Center.aspx

Approve: 43% u

Disapprove: 47% -1

It looks like the approve number has dropped over the past week, even if this is a bad sample.

Probably not until mid week.  It's a holiday weekend, so I don't know if the 'bots will be calling.

Long weekend polling is always a bit of a "funky" matter, Even if the 'Bots are going full bore, not quite sure I trust what they generate anyway....

Approve 48%, -1.

Disapprove 52%, +1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 25%, -1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  41%, +1.

It could be random, or beginning to catch a bounce.

Random, though the horse race poll is capturing a bounce.

I'd still like to wait a day or so for Gallup.  It's tracking poll showed a slump for Obama in terms of approval.
