These numbers prove Obama will lose California in 2012 hands down.

http://www.gallup.com/poll/124922/Presidential-Approval-Center.aspx

Let's just say that Gallup is a pretty favorable poll for Obama in the sense that it polls a ton of minorities.  The white vote more than likely isn't 70% of the sample in Gallup.

I cannot wait to watch Pbrower scream racisim when Palin is running up to 60% of the white vote on election day in 2012.


Yeah....totally...

Florida Survey of 750 Likely Voters

Conducted August 25, 2010

By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

  

28% Strongly approve

    18% Somewhat approve

      7% Somewhat disapprove

    46% Strongly disapprove

      1% Not sure

It changes nothing, so no new map.


So, I'm going to take a wild guess and say that would translate to 46-53?

Except numbers to go up next week, he's unveiling another economic recovery package.



I doubt. people don"t trust Obama anymore. It's the second time that Obama is strongly down after a speech.

It's the poor economic numbers that have come out that are hurting him, his speech isn't going to help him out so much. I can see his numbers start to rebound once he does his tour and announces this new "recovery package".

What makes you so sure that after his last "recovery package", voters are going to give him the benefit of the doubt?  I for one think that anything he says now is purely political in nature and will almost certainly not be directed at the midterms rather than actually creating a recovery.

People aren't just going to arbitrarily hate Obama because he announces a recovery package. The GOP will, but normal voters are going to welcome it. People are pissed at him because he has been focusing on Health Care and the war and not paying much attention to the economy. His numbers were through the roof when the stimulus packages were signed.  

What the "normal voters" want is not another failed stimulus package that will coast us billions of dollars that we don't have to spend. What they want is for Obama to keep the Bush tax cuts for the time being and for the Government to stop spending money we don't have.

The stimulus actually helped quite a lot, just not enough. The idea is good, there just wasn't enough added to actually help in the long run. People are actually starting to see that, though Republicans will continue to deny it and filibuster any chance of some recovery taking the floor.  For the record, whatever you posted isn't necessarily what "normal voters" want, it's what you want.

Even if he pushes some kind of recovery through Congress, it wouldn't be enough to take effect before the midterms and give him any kind of bounce.

Also, The same can be said about Republicans filibustering everything thrown at them due to midterms...rather than actually creating some kind of recovery. It's can be two sided.

+3.3% on RCP avg. The economy is still in shatters, unemployment is still above 9%....this HAS to be a mini rally effect from last weekend - and his resulting speech. There's really no other way to explain this.

I expect his numbers to tank again within 2 weeks - should nothing else of not happen.


Don't sound too excited now.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 44%, --2.

Disapprove 55%, +2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 26%, u.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 40%, +2.

This could just be a bad Obama sample moving through.




Is Rasmussen the only pollster showing a dip in Obama's numbers?

Obama's speech may be another instance why the media narrative is completely unsupported by polling.

The person who nailed the Obama speech completely was liberal Kirsten Powers.  I think her reaction is the one that was felt by most non-partisan,  non-political people.

http://www.thedailybeast.com/blogs-and-stories/2011-01-12/obama-arizona-speech-missed-an-opportunity/

Rasmussen and Gallup seem to back up her point.


That whole article complains about how Obama's mission should have been to tell everyone that it wasn't Palin's fault or the right-wing ect, when thats not what the President was there to speak about.

OK, can someone explain to me what are the reasons behind Obama's spectacular rise?
It's not like something fundamental changed in a month or so to see his numbers surge so dramatically.


Id love to hear Poundingtherock's take on this as well.

I wonder how the situation in Egypt will effect, if at all, his numbers.

Disapprove 59%, -1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 29%, +1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 36%, u.

My guess is that Egypt is what drove the numbers down.

?!

I would hope not...

He won't win re-election because he killed OBL. It's not a campaign issue. It's not something the electorate cares about enough.

I love how now its not a campaign issue anymore, despite the fact he was the mastermind behind 9/11 and we have been hunting the bastard for a decade. The electorate doesnt care anymore? The millions who celebrated his death and have been waiting for this moment for years would like to have a word with you.
