I'd expect a bounce for Obama after Friday's economic numbers. CNBC was having an orgasm proclaiming "America is back!" and "the new bull market!" all because we only lost 200,000 jobs. The media is now pushing this narrative.
CNBC was pretty much saying the economy was fine tell Lehman bros went under so this shouldnt come as a surprise.

Colorado (PPP)Sad

49% Approve
47% Disapprove

PPP surveyed 969 Colorado voters from August 14th to 16th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-3.2%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

Pretty close to his national numbers and also a improvement over the previous ppp poll of CO or is that wrong?

I don't see how it could be much worse. That is about the amount of people that voted for Obama, it makes sense.
Its actually a few points better, but probably within the margin of error.

Taking the Age Wave into account, Obama should still be competitive in NE-02, and will get around 42-45% statewide.

You've bought into the ludicrous "age wave" theory? I'm not so sure I buy it considering I saw a poll on Facebook today with 70% of respondents (258,000) saying they would not want Obama reelected. Small snap shot, I know, but still.

I'm still going to go with the old age theory of approval ratings. If Obama has less than a 50% approval rating in a state, he probably will lose it. If his approvals are 36% in Nebraska, I have no idea why you'd think he'd get 42%-45% or so statewide. The old method has been true in the past, and I am not going to buy these age wave theories until they actually are proven to be true.
facebook polls are really crappy and completely unrepresentative please do not bring them up.

As for the age wave, i wouldnt buy into it either as you said people generally get about the same percent that approve give or take a few points. Though tmth may be going on the fact that the neb poll showed him doing about 5% better among younger age group than the other age groups.

Thats better than ppp's last poll isnt it? Though, ppp i think had higher undecideds so they might actually be about the same.

Is that just likely voters in this falls election? it would seem very odd to me if obama had a lower approval rating in NJ than CO.

Interesting, though not unexpected, that Obama is losing ground in the mountain west far faster than in the rest of the country. Wisconsin is a surprise as well.
His numbers improved over last month in Wisconsin. all in all SUSA's monthly poll is very erratic so i would really like another reputable poster to confirm before i make conclusions. But so far susa and maybe a republican internal are all that have polled here.
