Gallup notes today that many people who took sides during the Transition have moved into "Undecided"-mode in past cycles. Maybe we witness the same here.

Rasmussen's national tracking for example showed 98% of those polled having an opinion about Obama until a few days ago. Today it's just 93% ...

Rasmussen has released polls for Texas and Tennessee:

Texas

62% approve (41% strongly) / 35% disapprove (19% strongly)

Tennessee

60% approve (39% strongly) / 35% disapprove (21% strongly)

Dave

It should be noted that the TX and TN polls were taken Jan. 14, when Obama had a 65-33 rating nationally ...

SUSA has a ridiculously gigantic Republican bias in Minnesota for some reason.

Very True ...

According to Gallup, Obama starts with a 68-12 approval rating (Jan. 21-23).

That's better than Clinton (58-20) and Bush (57-25) and comparable with Eisenhower (68-7), Kennedy (72-6) and Carter (66-8).

Well, according to Gallup he's in better shape today:

69% Approve (+1)
13% Disapprove (+1)

Don't know really why there's such a big difference between the 2 institutes, but if SUSA showed Obama with a 60% approval rating in Alabama, I tend to trust Gallup more ...

It`s about 65% right now if we average Rasmussen and Gallup and assign the Undecideds.

It`s probably not 70% because a few Conservatives who previously were undecided or mildly approving were scared away by Obama's abortion orders and big spending plans ...
