Very strong numbers in Virginia.  It's interesting to see him at 41-38 among conservatives, and 47-34 among Evangelicals.  The only group that disapproves of him are Republicans, and even then it's only a -13, with 25% unsure.  He's actually above 50% with most groups, which is a good sign.  I'm a little surprised he's the same with men and women, though.

North Carolina must be off.  PPP probably flipped some numbers around.

That seems hard to believe.

The gap between Rasmussen and Gallup widened today:

Rasmussen:

55% Approve (nc)
44% Disapprove (+1)

Gallup:

64% Approve (+2)
26% Disapprove (-1)

I'd guess Obama is probaby at about 60% right now.

And yes, I do admire my country. I live in the greatest country on Earth.

That doesn't mean you cannot criticize America.  I'm certainly not member of the "Blame America first crowd" (partly because it doesn't exist); America has made a lot of mistakes, especially in the way it has handled the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan.  It is foolish to think that America is infallible, because it isn't.

So Obama's probably at around 60% nationally.  Good numbers for May.

Do you seriously think Obama would get 65% in an election in North Carolina?

Roll Eyes

Absolutely not. 55%, tops. An approval rating does not translate smoothly into voting.

More like 52%.  The last Democrat to break 55% in NC was Carter in 1976.  Only 1 Democrat has broken 45% since then, and that was Obama last year.

A new Mason-Dixon Nevada poll will be out soon.

But I don't know how reliable Mason-Dixon is after showing only a 4-point Obama win in Nevada, when he really won it by 13% ...

In all fairness, did anyone get NV right? I remember PPP also had a 4 point spread.

Zogby had a 10 point lead on 11/3.

Why do people care what avatar he has?  He has a Romney banner in his sig, for pete's sake.  It really doesn't matter.

even Deeds.

Obama's still doing well in Virginia.  I also don't think Deeds is tied too closely to Obama for it to hurt him unless Obama falls into the 40's.

I'd say his approval rating is in between the Gallup and Rasmussen numbers.

Yeah, i'd agree with that.

Thirded, but that isn't exactly a surprise.

Actually the Iraq War would have went much smoother had the left not kept getting in the way of Bush's actions and constantly criticizing him.

Really?  Was it the Left's fault that Rumsfeld badly mismanaged the War, or that Bush didn't have a plan for the post Hussein era?

Virginia (Washington Post)Sad

57% Approve
41% Disapprove

This Washington Post poll was conducted by telephone August 11-14, 2009, among a random sample of 1,002 adults in the Commonwealth of Virginia including users of both conventional and cellular phones. The results from the full survey have a margin of sampling error of plus or minus three percentage points. Sampling, data collection and tabulation by TNS of Horsham, Pa.

And yet it has McDonnell leading Deeds by 7-15 points.  Roll Eyes

Why is Romney so low?

Because the youth of today don't want to vote for Pure Evil.

One thing seems reasonably certain: Obama is not about to get a spike in his approval ratings analogous to that of Dubya eight years ago!

Let us hope so.

Very surprising, but good.  New Jersey is also incredibly odd; any explanations?

I wish Dave could set up a map like he did for the election polling; so that we can see an unbiased view of the whole.

40.4% Disapprove

Good to see, but inaccurate.  Plus, it's all adults, not even just registered voters.
