How is this guys?



30-39%- Dark Dark Red
40-44%- Dark Red
45-49%- Red
Under 50% but Approval is higher than Disapproval- Pink
50-54%- Light Green
55-59%- Green
60%+- Dark Green

Let me know if you guys have any suggestions.

Pretty good.
I would say switch under 50% approval but higher than disapproval to the really light blue.

Question: Does anyone else suppose that Oregon has a lower current approval rating of Obama than Washington and California because he's not liberal enough for them?

I know that many Democrats and liberals are angry or otherwise frustrated with Obama.

I don't think so, Oregon is marginally more moderate than Washington or California. Though I would say that Oregon if anything is more 'independent' in their politics, they just don't quite fit as well into the whole left vs right debate.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 52%, +2.

Disapprove 47%, -2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 31%, +3.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 35%, -1.

This is the best Obama number since July of 2009.





Democrats again adoring Obama after feeling 'betrayed'?

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 45, u.

Disapprove 54%, u.

"Strongly Approve" is at 23%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 44%, +2.

Bad sample?

I think it's more the American public beginning to realize the seriousness of the budget cap debate... And while it's effecting Obama's approval I wouldn't be surprised if congressional dems and republicans also take dives soon. Which could mean that Obama may look artificially weak (especially when you consider the number of dems that disapprove because he has led without balls but would still vote for Obama in the next election.)

In other words people are angry but due to divided government are having a hard time directing/focusing that anger on any one player.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 43, -2.

Disapprove 56%, +1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 21%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 42%, u.

It, in theory, could be a bad sample, but I doubt it.

Agreed, I see Obama staying in this range for the next few months. It'll be hard for him to break out of the melancholy.

Awww.. I guess that's why they call it a bounce.
