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

I wonder how McCain would do now ...

Mid-40s ?

It'd be split about 50-50.

Did anyone watch O' Reilly in Late October? I remember one of Zogby's polls was being publicized because it said more Americans like McCain better on the economy then Obama. Then, they had Dick Morris on, and he infamously said: "The tide is turning. This is just the tip of the iceberg." LOL. Hilarious. Zogby is SO horrible.

According to Rasmussen, who got the '08 election correct, Obama has a 52% Approval, 47% Disapproval rating. But this is likely voters, all adults give him a higher rating.

Also, more people strongly disapprove then strongly approve of him, acccording to the poll.

On a side note, it says Bob McDonnell has a very narrow lead over Creigh Deeds.

EDIT, it also says the GOP leads on the Generic Congressional Ballot, 40%-37%

I'd say his approval rating is in between the Gallup and Rasmussen numbers.

Yeah, i'd agree with that.

It says on Pollster.com (which combines all polls) that he has a 51.1% approval rating, and a 45% disapproval rating, in the most sensitive version. It also says he has a 47.6% approval/46.9 disapproval on the economy, 55.2 approval/35.4 disapproval on foreign policy, and a 46.2 approval/43.9 disapproval on health care.

Is that approval or favorability for the governors there?

The republicans are current favorability across the nation. Obama's is his job approval as president.

EDIT: I see it's favorability. That's basically if you like the candidate as a person.

Obama's is currently 56.1% - 34.4%.

Yes, I saw that poll I didn't know which one post.

Wow, I'm surprised to see that nobody here has thrown out the idea of a "Kennedy bump" yet...

I actually was thinking about that. I think that'll help the dems in their version of Healthcare reform.

I agree with your analysis Darius, except I think Florida may lean a bit more to the GOP then 50/50, and Ohio a bit more to the Dems.

Obama will probably end up getting his public option anyway.

Today's trackers:

Gallup - 52/41
Rass - 50/49

Finally things are back to normal. Gallup should always be higher then Ras.

Pbrower has been proficent at predictions in current trends, but I feel he lacks in long term trends.


I believe he posted information about his prediction back in '01 after 9/11, and it was something like Bush winning 400+ electoral votes.

Get used to it. Sometimes I think he is a robot, created by the DNC, to try and get people to think Obama is unbeatable in 2012, in the hopes that many Republicans won't even vote.

I don't understand why he is the one running this thread. I see a clear bias and he uses favorability instead of approval, I've noticed! Can't we find someone else to make the fancy little map?

Anyone can make the maps, no one else besides PBrower chooses to, though.

I wonder what kind of bounce he'll get if/when HC passes.

But it won't pass...

Meh, Bachmann's poll was an outlier, methinks.

I'd think it was the Fort Hood speech, maybe a bit about his Asia trip mixed in.

The idea that Obama was going to end partisanship seems ridiculous in itself. I'm fairly confident that as of now, Obama will win re-election. It seems inevitable that whatever he does will attract hatred, even if the economy is able to recover. The Right has sprung into action, and Obama is beginning to have a fierce hatred that will come close to the feelings that the Doves felt back in 2003 & 2004. I think that this decade will be the paramount of polarization.

Approval and disapproval for the President can be extremely volatile. We are likely to see some more polls that corroborate or contradict this one.  Let's remember -- poor whites and poor blacks have much the same economic problems, and if any group of people has potential as pick-ups for Obama in 2012, it is poor whites. He can't do much good for poor blacks if he doesn't also do good for poor whites, too. If the "scariness" factor goes away and Obama achieves his promises, then the 2012 election should be an Obama landslide.

So how is making things worse for both poor blacks and poor whites going to affect Obama's re-election performance?

How is he making things worse? He promised to start undoing the damage of the previous Administration and he is making good on his promises. Unemployment is high, but such reflects damage done before he became President.   

Trying taking the blinders off, first.

I can't wait to see Pbrower's reaction if a republican wins in 2012.
