I doubt Hitler's approval ratings were ever as high as Obama's. The most the Nazi Party ever got was like 44%.

Hitler's approvals at the peak of his popularity, 1935-6, were probably well into the upper 80s. Not that anybody polled, of course.

From the same poll

"I had hoped for more from Obama" 12% say yes
"Obama's policies are the same as Bush's" 7% say yes.

The most recent poll for Alabama shows a 58% approval rating. That may be counter-intuitive.



Link?
Can't seem to find a poll like that. There was a poll with Obama at 60% approval of Alabama once, but that was right around inauguration day. The newest poll I found was 48% app, 49% disapproval, which I figure is probably the one actually shown in your map.

Artur Davis is running for a Congressional seat in 2010 as a Democrat.
Actually, he currently holds a Congressional seat. He's running for Governor.

Here is the poll, like it or not. I am not familiar with the polling agency, but until someone discredits it I go with it, just as I go with some polls that suggest that Colorado is weak in support for Obama:

Alabama (Anzalone-Liszt Research (D) for Artur Davis, 600 LV, May 5-9)Sad

"58 percent of voters approve of Obama's performance, including 46 percent of white voters.  In addition, 87 percent of white Democrats and 57 percent of independents approve of Obama’s performance."

http://www.arturdavis2010.com/release_details.asp?id=65

Interesting, because the last Alabama poll by SUSA (600 adults) had Obama at only 48%.

http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=c643766a-9eb3-42a5-a1ce-38215e0aa02b

It's almost a month old, but one poll a month from Alabama is about the most that anyone can expect.

Artur Davis is running for a Congressional seat in 2010 as a Democrat.

That is a campagin run poll, most people don't really look at them.
It's still a poll.
I don't know your standard for including polls here, and care not whether it is included or not, but his statement appears to have been correct. You might admit as much, too.

There was a SurveyUSA Alabama poll which would obviously be more credible than a published "internal" poll.
But older.

What are you talking about? Obama is obviously just as popular in Texas as he is in New York!
The people they polled claim to have voted for McCain by five points and John Cornyn by two. IIRC that's not quite how the elections turned out.

What's with the weird "no opinion of Romney" hike?

Gallup just released 50 states, but they are from January-June polling so I have no idea what to make of it. Pretty much meaningless numbers.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/122165/Obama-Approval-Highest-D.C.-Hawaii-Vermont.aspx

I concur, so I won't make any map about these. Polls from January to June might be rich in data but they would also be obsolete.
Should be useful for that projection thingee you did. But not be confused with current polling.

Or maybe the electorate has shifted since then.

I recognize your narrative for this November will be that the reason why the Democrat Party lost was because Democrats didn't show up but the reality may very well be that there are fewer Democrats as the country has shifted since 2008.
No; the reason why the Democratic Party lost will be because such unusual numbers of Republicanarians showed up.

This is not to say that minorish shifts haven't occurred since 2008. They probably have. That's just a "return to normalcy" thing.

He made it pretty clear that he's considering the mission accomplished and looking for the next piece of America to destroy. No point rubbing it in further.
