Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 48%, -2.

Disapprove 51%, +2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 28%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  41%, +1.

Wow, Bain, it is avalanche, in reverse, or it's just the bounce dropping out.

Or just a bad sample. Or just old Rasmussen doing his thing again.

It really makes no difference, since we are looking at changes in the same poll across time.  Any bias will be in a "good" Obama sample verses a "bad" Obama sample.

I'd be waiting for Gallup to see it the "avalanche" is still rolling uphill

IIRC, their September sample is R+4 while their previous samples were reasonable.

Again, it should not make a difference internally to the polls.  I'm also not sure about any +4.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 49%, +1

Disapprove 50%, -2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 29%, +1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  42%, u.

The uphill avalanche might have stopped as well.

(I'll be photographing a parade this afternoon, so could someone else get Gallup's numbers.)

50% in both tracking polls, not bad.

I guess we have to see over the next few days if it sticks. If it does, Romney is in huge trouble.

Actually, it is not great.  This is about 7-10 days after the DNC and there was no holding of the bounce.

Anyway, your election rules already say that Romney has lost, so I don't know why we even need this thread anymore.

The corollary to J. J.'s First Rule is:  Never trust just one poll.  Trust several and remember that the electorate changes its mind quickly.

I'm looking at trending.

Oh so the rule doesn't count if the candidate you support says he doesn't look at/trust the polls. Gotcha.

Sorry J.J., but all I'm objectively seeing in the approval ratings and polls is a decent bounce that has only slightly eroded.

Well, by using the standard you used yesterday, Romney just won.  Roll Eyes
