It's about time somebody cut a map based on the random states provided in this thread so far:

Thx. For what it's worth, here's the latest NC Obama Approval Rating by Civitas:

60% Approve
6% Disapprove
34% Undecided

http://www.nccivitas.org/media/poll-results/january-2009-monthly-poll

6%? LOL.

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.

What a joke. Even Fox has 60%.

Yeah, call the most accurate pollster in 2008 a joke. See what there gets you.

That doesn't stop his approval rating polls from being some serious outliers. Toss out the 2 biggest outliers (Rasmussen and CNN), and it's clear that his approval rating is in the 60s.

Those polls are outdated.

Hardly. The 3 most recent from there:
CNN 2/18-19 67%
Fox 2/17-18 60%
AP 2/12-17 67%

Also, Research 2000 2/16-19 69%

Obama's Approval Rating in Germany, according to the monthly "Deutschlandtrend" by Infratest-dimap for the TV station ARD (1000 Germans interviewed, March 2-3):

74% Approve
2% Disapprove
24% Undecided

http://www.infratest-dimap.de/download/dt0902.pdf

Quite impressive.

It's astonishing that the number of traitors (2%) is already this high.

What's Hitler's approval rating in Germany? 2%?

ZOGBY: OBAMA MOST UNPOPULAR PRESIDENT SINCE GEORGE W. BUSH

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.

http://www.zogby.com/news/ReadNews.cfm?ID=1686

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

I don't know about that, but it is pretty obvious.

The 47-51 in Texas looks more ominous for Obama than it is, but such are the rules:




So, Florida disapproves of Obama while Utah approves? That's interesting.

Strategic Vision is back !

Georgia:

37% Approve
50% Disapprove

The results are based on telephone interviews with 800 likely voters in Georgia, aged 18+, and conducted March 5-8, 2010 by telephone. The margin of sampling error is 3.5 percentage points.

http://www.strategicvision.biz/political/georgia_poll_031510.htm

7 is the 2nd most likely digit for them to end with, while 0 is the 5th most likely. 1 is the rarest, so they weren't so likely to give him a 51% disapproval rating.

The truth of the comic in my signature has become more and more obvious. Obama may have a JD from Harvard, but his Presidency has shown that he's a moron.

Nate Silver has SurveyUSA at #1.

So even if you want to slam Rasmussen, SurveyUSA's numbers were worse for Obama because they polled his favorable rating.  Of course, some of the Republican hacks here don't like SurveyUSA.

Quinnipiac actually narrowly beat them.
It's funny how PPP had a Republican bias. Of course I'm sure Republicans will still mention how they're for DailyKos.

Ha! They're still playing the "We can take Kansas" game? Wow! I remember that one from 2008. It didn't work out so well then. I have a hunch it won't happen in 2012 either.

Only people on crack thought that Kansas was in play in 2008.

The closest Obama came to McCain was in Mid-February 2008, after he had a winning streak in the primaries and even then Obama was down by 8 points.

What about that crazy talk about Obama having a chance at a Nebraska elector? Oh, wait....

From the article:

"Looking at that figure another way, roughly one in four Americans who disapprove of the president say they feel that way because he's not been liberal enough."

And approximately 0-2% of those will vote for Romney or (especially) Bachmann. And not that much more will refuse to turn out when all is said and done.



Obama is probably mad that repealing DADT wasn't enough to buy the support of those people that he's spent the last 2.5 years stabbing in the back. Damn those multi-issue voters.
