Yes I know that this is fairly old, but I decided to make a graph of Obama's approval ratings in his first month (January 20 to February 19 2009 inclusively) according to Rasmussen Reports:



It shows net approval (total approve minus total disapprove), and the information was collected from http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/obama_approval_index_history.

Also interesting is this article (which has a link to the previously mentioned Web page): http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/daily_presidential_tracking_poll.

Another graph, this time of Obama's second month (February 20 to March 19 inclusively), again acccording to Rasmussen Reports.



Again this is net approval (total approve minus total disapprove), and the information was collected from http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/obama_approval_index_history.

Oh you're part of the blame America first crowd too. Good to know.

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

How is your crowd called? Delusional, flag waving, ultra-nationalist defenders of ''Manifest Destiny''?
Or perhaps the ''White Resentment Appreciation Association''?

Grow up man! The 80's are over and Ronald Reagan is still dead.
And I hate to break it to you, but the greatest country on earth is owed by China. So get used to some ass kissing.
 
Shocked

Why are you surprised?

OBAMA IS NOT WINNING UTAH UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES. NONE. ZILCH.
Disagree
If Huckabee is the nominee, it will be close. If Obama's approval ratings are above 60%, and Huckabee is the Republican nominee, Obama will carry the state. Romney would barely get 60% under that scenario.

I'm sorry but you are wrong, dead wrong. Please try again.

I'm dead right. Mormons hate Huckabee. Many will stay home on election day. The whole southwest is trending Democrat. A strong Obama term + Huckabee as the Republican nominee = Utah going Democrat

Dude, your hate for Huckabee is blinding your judgement. Also you don't speak for mormons, you just speak for yourself. The fact is Huckabee would kill Obama in Utah and thats the bottom line.

Agree completely on this and on RowanBrandon's post.

We all know that his only reason for switching to an I avatar is to protest against Huckabee.

I love how liberals hate Reagan, but always want to compare themselves to him.

You hit the nail right on the head.

Why is Hawaii mentioned?

Hawaii is not Obama's home state.

Hawaii is not Obama's home state.

He was born there.

Biden was born in Pennsylvania, yet Pennsylvania was not mentioned as one of the home states.

Not to mention that a politician's place of birth is pretty much irrelevant. Because apparently Connecticut was a home state of Bush II, but he never won there.

Just for the record, favorables among 18-29 year olds from PPP's latest poll:

Huckabee 45/19
Romney 32/34
Gingrich 30/32
Palin 30/53

Huckabee's numbers are surprising.

Why is Romney so low?

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

You seem to be forgetting that Obama won NV by 13 points. Also, this is favorables, not approval which would be lower. And plus, it's a Kos poll.

^^^
Correct.  "Favorability" is not "job approval".  One shouldn't treat them interchangeably.  And yes, Obama won NV by ~5 points more than he won by nationally, so the GOP could certainly win without it.  Heck, post-2010 reapportionment, the GOP can win by getting all the states that Bush won twice minus Nevada.  That currently adds up to 269 274 EV, but would be ~277 EV in 2012.

I never thought that he would drop below 60% in Massachusetts.

Obama's Illinois approvals are almost as surprising as his Massachusetts numbers, and for the same reason.

He doesn't care. He is just trying to make Obama look as good as possible.

Well for one thing, New Jersey is not a tossup.

Of course it's not. There isn't even a presidential election now; this is about approval ratings.

Pbrower, what makes this NJ poll different than the NJ poll that you rejected before?

It gives Obama a net positive approval rating.

Why I disagree with rounding up:
Your map makes it appear that at least 60% of Illinois residents approve of Obama, when less than 60% does. It is deceiving.

^^^^

pbrower2a is a left wing drone who tries to make Obama approval look greater than it actually is.

pbrower2a has a valid point. It`s only 56% in "Rasmussen-World".

*facepalm*

So what if Rasmussen says it is 56%?

I bet pbrower would do this rounding up nonsense no matter who is doing the poll.

Gracias, Smiley.

What did you do to the code to get it like that?

I changed the '2008' near the beginning of the code to '1964'; one of only two election years (the other being 1968, which works the same way) in which D.C. appears, and Maine's districts don't show up.  (They started using their system from 1972 onwards.)

That is exactly what I do as well. Not bad.

Oklahoma

38% Approve
62% Disapprove

An improvement over his actual vote total, for what it's worth...

Yeah, that's kind of interesting.

The "approval rating plus six" theory is one of the funniest things I've ever seen on the forum, up there with some of Naso's stuff.

It's even funnier, how pbrower just ignores everyone else.
