Only America would elect George W. There is just a special breed of people here who simply cannot stand the thought of their president being more intelligent than they are.

Just have to stay above 55%. No way we can lose as long as we keep that goal in place.

And you consider religious bigotry worse than racist bigotry?

Intelligent people find it very hard not to look down on overly religious types, and I have said nothing about Christians that isn't true.

You are nothing more than a pathetic, venomous slime that constantly tries to draw attention and start fires with outrageous comments.

pbrower must be a climate change scientist.

I am not a scientist, but I appreciate the compliment.

The science behind climate change is far better than that of the denialists, thank you. Double-blind tests and peer review are the ways in which to establish credibility in science. Political predictions? There's far more statistical noise.   

Climate change deniers, creationists, or any other of the conserative sects of the science community do not know what a peer review is. Therefore, your criticism is irrelavent.

It's about time somebody cut a map based on the random states provided in this thread so far

Look at what you did. Angry

Yes, damn you Joe Republic for creating this monster.

Excellent/Good and Fair/Poor aren't the same as approval and disapproval and should not be included.

Why are you talking to him as if he has standards?

I think Obama will lose Michigan in 2012. 

If he loses Michigan, then it's a pretty easy win for the Republican whoever it is.

We all know who it is.

Did anyone notice the crosstabs in that PPP poll on North Carolina?  
47% D, 34% R is questionable, but the poll favors the president, so let it be.  

Ignore him and his absurd map.

If I recall, Obama was behind McCain in Michigan into about July of 2008. Should Obama lose Michigan he would have to pick up states in which he did badly in 2008.

Michigan's economy has been a wreck for almost 40 years now. It has toyed with the Right only to find non-solutions. Governors over the last forty years have thought that they could turn the state around, and they seem invariably to fail whether R or D. Michigan has long depended upon "heavy consumer goods" like automobiles and appliances that used to be the cutting edge of technology and very profitable. Now they are not so profitable. What new technology can one put into a washing machine?

Yes, but Mccain was at around 40-43%. He never even reached Bush's 2000 result. I can't help but think that a lot of that vote was going to break for Obama regardless.

I still can't believe someone with even the smallest insight into basic politics would include favorability in with approval. And no, he does not deserve to be given the benefit of the doubt, he has proven time and again he only uses the results he likes.

He is completely in denial about being fired, it's best to just leave him alone for now.

I'll be honest: I do like the coloring of Pbrower's map a little better than the new one we all cooked up. 

I like the lighter shading as opposed to the solid red, green, and pink in the new one. 

As long as pbrower continues (starts?) adding to it with the polls posted, it should be fine.  Also, I totally agree with nik, that we can just color the obvious states that aren't polled in their specific color.  They aren't polled for a reason: it's obvious which way they lean. 

His maps are filled with lies, he includes what should not be included.

Favorability should never be included in a map measuring approval. There shouldn't even be a debate about this.

If trends due continue, Texas will be gone for the GOP by 2025. I don't think it will though, the Hispanic community hasn't been dumbed down enough to fall into that partisan trap.

I know it's far out, but Obama 2012 is looking more and more like Bush 2004. The polarization is just ridiculous. I think the best thing for the Democrats would be for the GOP take Congress this year, right now they are viewed as the 'government party' and it's definately hurting them.

Yeah, the country is going to embrace this beyond mediocre president and he will win by the same amount. Where's that "era of good feelings" you were predicting pbrower?

What is wrong with Gallup? Their erratic numbers are really unprofessional.

Interesting that VA would mirror the nation as a whole, assuming that poll is worth something (and I'm not).
