Update:

Rasmussen:

62% Approve
36% Disapprove

Gallup:

65% Approve
20% Disapprove

CBS News:

62% Approve
15% Disapprove

Well, it's obvious that the Obama presidency has failed.
How long till the RNC puts up a clock ticking to his resignation?

Just under three weeks...

Because we know those historically low approval ratings for the Democrats in Congress over the past two years really hurt them and prevented them from picking up eight seats in the Senate and plenty more in the House...

No. Bacause the Congressional Republicans approval ratings were even worse.

They are hanging it all on this stimulus. If it fails, heads will roll. The media will still push the narrative of Obama, though.

The same media where during the Stimulus debate the 2/3 of their guests were Republicans?
the same media where Michael Steele says that the Government has NEVER created jobs and Wolf Blitzer says nothing?

Yeah, totaly in the tank for Obama.

I still don't understand the euphoria about Obama's approval ratings.  It's called a honeymoon you morons.  And Obama's approval rating has gone consistently down.  There is nothing to celebrate here.  Call me back at the end of the year.

In fact, his approval is tanking in the Rasmussen poll, down to 57% today.

I give him one month before he gets impeached.

Obama should resign. It's clear that the American people have rejected his socialist, possibly Muslim, agenda.

DEMINT/CANTOR 2012

No way a leftist Jew faggot like Cantor will be on the ticket.

DeMint/Coburn!
And just in case that doesn't work, Santorum/Limbaugh.

Latest DailyKos/R2000 weekly update:

71% Favorable
25% Unfavorable

A total of 2400 adults nationally were interviewed by telephone. A cross-section of calls was made into each state in the country in order to reflect the adult population nationally. The margin for error, according to standards customarily used by statisticians, is no more than plus or minus 2% percentage points.

Has the RNC installed the ''Countdown to impeachment'' clock yet?

But a registered voter poll is a million times better than an adult poll which is useless.

The problem is that many of them won't be around to vote in 2012, while younger people who will be able to vote by then aren't polled.
So to use registered, or even worse likely, voters screen NOW is completely useless.

Wait, so you are saying people like Gallup are polling kids? LOL. They are polls ofadults. That means everyone is at least 18, which means that registered voters are a better gauge of a poll of a people that actually matter. If you don't vote, you don't matter.

No, you got it completely backwards.
I am saying that there are adults who just became (or will soon become) eligible to vote, but they haven't registered yet (something normal, we are years away from the next election).
So, these people aren't polled, even though in 2010 and 2012 they will vote, thus their opinion matters.

"The honeymoon is over, a national poll will signal today as President Obama’s job approval stumbles to about 50 percent over the lack of improvement with the crippled economy.

Pollster John Zogby said his poll out today will show Americans split on the president’s performance. He said the score factors out to “about 50-50.”

Some polls show Obama coasting with a 65 percent job approval, but not in Zogby’s tally.

“The numbers are going down,” Zogby told the Herald. “It’s not because of the gaffes, but a combination of high expectations and that things aren’t moving fast enough with the economy.”

That's good news for John McCain.

Now add South Carolina, where Obama has more approval than does the Governor, someone supposedly having a chance to be a Presidential or VP nominee.

SurveyUSA now supports the Crantford & Associates poll:

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Mark Sanford is doing as Governor?

41% Approve
55% Disapprove

http://www.surveyusa.com/client/PollReport.aspx?g=fa7fe67e-60d1-4167-999c-fc2f6dbda8cd

Not so hot numbers for the "great Republican rising star in 2012" ...

Wow! The citizens of South Carolina who suffer through a recession actually prefer help from the federal goverment, rather than political grandstanding from their governor.

Knock me down with a feather.

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

There are people like that.
They are called Israelis.

Don't worry, px75.  I don't like Jews either.

I said Israelis dickhead. Not Jews.

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.

Arrogant is too mild a word to describe George W. Bush's America.

If you want to live into a fantasy world where your country invades a sovereign nation under false pretenses, ignores and belittles its allies and precipitates the worst financial crisis since the Great Depression, and yet you admire it, then be my guest.

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.

I think the upcoming immigration debate will cost him a few points (~5%) as well ...

Losing a few points temporarily, but possibly locking in the Democratic camp the fastest-growing minority group. That sounds a pretty fair deal.
Carl Rove was no dummy when he insisted that Bush and the Republicans MUST pass immigration reform in order to remain relevant in the future.

Colorado- PPP

Approve 49%
Disapprove 45%

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/PPP_Release_CO_421.pdf

That seems pretty strange. It makes me interested in seeing some more polls out of Colorado.

The numbers for Mark Udall are even stranger. He is in negative territory (41%-46% ), even though he hasn't done anything controversial, not to mention it's just a few months since he was sworn in.

Don't be shocked if the Democrat's approvals don't remain sky high forever. Remember, the Republicans had a lot of negative approvals for congressional candidates who had done nothing controversial as well. If Obama is not particularly popular in Colorado, then it's no surprise that the Democratic senator is running behind him.

The Republican candidates were dragged down by Bush's horrible numbers and a tarnished party brand. And even then it took a while for their numbers to go south. 
That doesn't apply here. Obama still has a positive rating and the Democratic party has consistently high ratings. And of course Udall just got elected rather comfortably.

Hard to believe that Obama is more popular in Georgia than in Colorado.

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.
