You are talking about 15-16 year olds? They are very democratic.

Somewhat true, but a lot of teens are only democrat because Obama was running. Most teens don't know what the difference between a Republican and  a Democrat. I think the GOP needs to show teens the principles of the party.

Here's how most teens figure politics:
George Bush = Bad = Republican
Obama = God = Democrat

So most teens think since they like Obama then they are a democrat. When they mature, they will figure it out and become more conservative.

What a disturbing piece of work the Right wingers have made, I'm sure that's going to get them In the White House!

Kind of like this photo got the dems in the white house.
Yep, it's Bush.


Oh wait, what about this one, it's a real hitter.

There needs to be more Florida polls conducted. I'm interested to see current approvals.

What do people think in your part of Florida?

Well I think most people are against the healthcare reform stuff. As seen in the Tampa/Kathy Castor protest. Especially most seniors are worried.

Well considering he was under 50 approval before the healthcare debate it doesn't surprise me.
He basically lost most seniors with healthcare. Sucks for him.

These numbers aren't even believable going by Rasmussen's own suspect national numbers. I'm sure he'll have a nice, saliva filled discussion with Hannity over them though.

Even if you account for Rasmussen's deviation from the average, disapproves still outnumber approves (I think).

Don't even bother arguing. If a poll isn't to a liberals liking, it's skewed...

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
I'm not surprised Huckabee is doing so well among the youth.

And, according to PPP, Obama would carry them against Huckabee (51-40); Gingrich (53-40); Romney (58-28); and Palin (60-28)

Why is Romney so low?

Nope. Kentucky is R+23, New Jersey is D+8

Actually Kentucky is R+11 and New Jersey is D+7. I got these from wiki so they could be wrong.

I can't find the pollster's version of the poll but it is in this article:

FLORIDA APPROVAL:

"President Obama also earns weak job approval marks from Florida voters, with 46 percent saying he is doing a good or excellent job and 51 percent calling it fair or poor. The voters who delivered Florida's 27 electoral votes independents have turned on him, with nearly 6 in 10 negatively assessing Obama's performance."

Approval 46/51

Disaster for the GOP in Georgia (if genuine -- as I found nothing at Rasmussen):



Georgia is less R than such states as Kentucky, Louisiana, and Tennessee which have shown polls suggesting nearly-even approval and disapproval for Obama.

Even if the Rasmussen poll is an inverse of reality, the GOP will be unable to win the 2012 election unless it can win Georgia by more than 2%. Obama support is now not only positive, but also above 50%, in two states that he lost in 2008: Georgia and Missouri.  

I love how with disapproval majority polls your have to "average" them in. But with polls such as Georgia, they are just accepted.  Nice map troll.

Did anyone notice the crosstabs in that PPP poll on North Carolina? 
47% D, 34% R is questionable, but the poll favors the president, so let it be. 

Wow, almost half democrats and favorability is only 1 point ahead... not good for Barack.

Massachusettes (Suffolk University)Sad

48% Approve
43% Disapprove

The statewide survey of 500 Massachusetts registered voters was conducted Jan. 11-13, 2010. The margin of error is +/- 4.38 percent at a 95 percent level of confidence.

http://www.suffolk.edu/39994.html

This poll shouldn't be included because it is for likely voters that are voting in the special election Jan 19th. Not all likely voters...

Does Obama deserve to be reelected?

yes 44%
no 52%


Those types of questions are redundant. Only match-ups with actual people matter.

Not really, I'm sure some people who disapprove of the way he is doing would still vote for him and vice versa.
