I expected him to stay in the high 60s-low 70s for at least a month or longer.

any polls that don't have him in the mid 60s are obviously bogus

Gallup's at 60/31 today, probably the closest it's ever been to Rasmussen.

When did you become an independent?  Are the mean Republicans purging moderates again? Sad

It's just odd how your whole schtick is that Republicans can only win with "moderates" when you were a big Michele Bachmann fan not too long ago. Romney/Bachmann '12!!!  The Utah debate is a little absurd too.

People tend to exaggerate how far out of the mainstream people like Huckabee and Palin are, especially when your beloved Romney is forced to pathetically pander to the type of voter they appeal to. But whatever. If you're at your rebellious teenage stage I'm sure we'll see the red avatar emerge by the 2010 elections. Wink

Gallup is showing their highest disapproval and lowest approval to date.  They're also getting closer and closer to Rasmussen

Gallup:

Approve 59%
Disapprove 34%


Rasmussen:

Approve 57%
Disapprove 42%

That approval is exactly the same as Rasmussen's from today.

PPP:

Obama's Decline with Independents
It's been seven weeks now since we put out any poll- national or state level- that showed Barack Obama's approval rating over 50% with independents. Tomorrow's Virginia release on politician approvals in the state finds Obama with just 38% of voters in that group giving him good marks to 52% disapproving.

Here's how Obama fared among independents in our last eight polls, listed in reverse chronological order:


Virginia
38/52

New Jersey   
43/46

Ohio
49/39

North Carolina
49/43

National
46/49

Wisconsin
49/45

Alabama
40/49

West Virginia
33/53

I must say I'm enjoying the rationalizations for his dropping numbers more than this thread couple months ago - a circle jerk over how high his numbers are.

With that said I'm sure his approvals will rebound sometime over the next 3 years...maybe.

If you look at the Gallup graph, his overall decline started around his 100th day in office almost to the exact date. I never bought in to the 100 day honeymoon thing, but maybe it is true in this case.

Quinnipiac:
Quote
President Barack Obama's job approval rating is 48 - 42 percent, the first time he has slipped below the 50 percent threshold nationally, according to a Quinnipiac University poll released today. Support for the war in Afghanistan and approval of President Obama's handling of the war also is down in the last month, and Republican support for the war is more than twice as strong as Democratic support.

 Rasmussen:
Quote
The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 26% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as President. Forty percent (40%) Strongly Disapprove giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -14. That matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet recorded for this President

Rasmussen and Gallup had equal approval ratings today - 48%. Is that a first?
