California actuallybeing below the national average is as likely as Wyoming voting for Obama in 2012.

University polls are never the best.

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

I wonder how McCain would do now ...

Mid-40s ?

I'd guess around 50%. Lower than Obama anyway. And Palin would've made a good few blunders by now.

So TN is only 4% more anti-Obama than the nation as a whole?

Okay Rasmussen... Roll Eyes

All of Rasmussen approval polls have seemed... odd compared to polls from other firms.

Image Link ZOGBY: OBAMA MOST UNPOPULAR PRESIDENT SINCE GEORGE W. BUSH Image Link

The actual numbers are:

49% Excellent/Good
50% Fair/Poor

LOL !

Zogby International conducted an online survey of 4523 voters.

A sampling of Zogby International's online panel, which is representative of the adult population of the US, was invited to participate. Slight weights were added region, party, age, race, religion, gender, education to more accurately reflect the population. The margin of error is +/- 1.5 percentage points. Margins of error are higher in sub-groups.

Surely even the most far-right Republican could see that those numbers are botched.

Hillary Clinton (Secretary of State) - CNN/Opinion Research, March 12-15:

71% Approve
23% Disapprove

http://www.boston.com/news/politics/politicalintelligence/2009/03/clinton_has_rob.html

I would've thought Hillary's approval would be closer to Obama's than that.

Gallup Down:

Approve 59(-1)
Disapprove 30(nc)

Seems to me that Rasmussen must have a clear outlier if these two have the same approval as Gallup has been traditionally a few points higher than Rasmussen.

First Gallup under 60? :/

South Dakota (Research 2000/DailyKos):

47% Favorable
45% Unfavorable

The Research 2000 South Dakota Poll was conducted from March 30 through April 1, 2009. A total of 600 likely voters who vote regularly in state elections were interviewed statewide by telephone.

http://www.dailykos.com/statepoll/2009/4/1/SD/280

I've just seen this on DKos now, i'm pretty suprised that Obama only have a net +2 in South Dakota. I know it went to McCain by +10 points, but still.

"With Obama as President, the US is on the right way again":

89% Yes

"Im happy that Obama visits Germany":

82% Yes

"With Obama as President, the US is a country that we can trust":

78% Yes

"Obama's first months in office have surprised me in a positive way":

72% Yes

http://www.tagesschau.de/inland/deutschlandtrend592.html

"Would you want Obama to father your daughter's child?"

94% Yes

"Do you approve of Obama's blond hair and blue eyes?"

88% Yes

Germans are gullible people.  Remember, these are the people that elected Hitler.

I'd be more scared of the Germans if they admired Dubya and loathed Obama. Wouldn't you?

Most definitely!

Gallup's back up to 63-27, after 59-30 a few days ago.

Hardly a surprise. Even the Republicans, of the non-Michelle-Bachmann variety, admit that his European trip has been a success until now.

Except for the part where he blames America for everything.

Your clock is about 20 years behind.

I DARE him to come back on American soil and call America "arrogant." Let's see what kind of reaction he would get. He'd be lucky not to get a shoe thrown at him. Instead he plays right into the hands of the Anti-American Europeans.

Alot have only became anti-American because of George W Bush. I don't know about the rest of Europe, but here in the UK, generally, there's been more respect for America since November 4th.

I know that's really high, but I really think it should be higher for the UK.

That one is pretty questionable, but I suppose you can still disapprove of the job Obama is doing, but still find him "favourable".

PPP National

Approve 53%
Disapprove 41%

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/PPP_Release_National_423.pdf

Geez an approval even lower than the Republican hack Rasmussen?Huh??

And Pew has him at 63-26 and AP/GfK at 64-30.
So apparently PPP is the odd one here.

Weren't Democrats criticizing AP late in the 2008 presidential race when it showed Obama only up by 2 points?

A poll for an election is different to a poll for approval though.

Both Rasmussen and Gallup show Obama's numbers improving again:

Gallup: 66-27 (+1, -1)
Rasmussen: 56-43 (+1, -1)

The the first piece of real movement in ages on Rassmussen...

Gallup is insane. They were awful in the 2008 election.

True, they had 2 or 3 different daily trackers didn't they, and the USA Today/Gallup polls and they still didn't get it right.

I think this will close any assumptions that Kansas could vote for Obama under a good term.
