After two days on the job, 25 percent of Kentuckians already disapprove. Honeymoon over?

No, I'd say the honeymoon is over because the press is already giving him a hard time over something silly (not letting enough reporters/cameras in on that second swearing in).  Tongue

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...

The other major party was considerably less popular though, so that isn't terribly relevant to the current situation.

And the Reoublicans aren't in power now. So, yes, for the time being, it doesn't help their electability argument but if Obama continues to slip and if the Dems in Congress remain unpopular, watch as the GOP ratings go up.

Huh. Obama might yet win Utah in 2012 after all.

(provided he wins in a Reagan- or LBJ-esque fashion, before the Republicans jump down my throat)

Give us Kansas, Lief. Come on.

I find it really funny when anyone thinks Alcon is being a hack for either side.

Well, I sort of agree. He plays both sides so frequently that he can't be established as a hack for just one side.

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

DEMINT/CANTOR 2012

...

So you're being just as idiotic as the people saying he's guaranteed to lose?

We're barely a month into his Presidency, folks. It's not time for anyone to get cocky.

When did I say he was guaranteed to win? I was just making fun of the hacks who think Obama's approvals are collapsing or that the stimulus/his economic policies are unpopular.

Well, maybe you haven't said it out right but you've implied it and haven't once corrected these ridiculous maps that have him practically sweeping the nation.

Anything is possible, as you so like to say. A Reagan/Nixon/LBJ-re-election-esque victory is a distinct possibility.

Sure it is but at the same time you say that, you laugh off the possibility of a Republican landslide. Consistency problem? Absolutely.

New International Herald Tribune/Harris Interactive poll:

Italy: 86% Good, 5% Poor (+81)

Phil can't be too pleased about those numbers. Smiley

Oh, boy. The same country that adores Berlusconi. They just love their celebrities.

Italy is consistently one of Obama's "best countries," by the way. It's also one of the most right wing countries in all of Europe. Does that smell funny to anyone else?

I have to agree that "likely voters" aren't a factor at this point.

This thread will be amusing when unemployment hits 12%.

That won't happen, silly. You see, America hates the GOP so much that they won't ever disapprove of Obama because they know the alternative!

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.

NYT/CBS News Poll:

49% Approve
39% Disapprove

Pretty bad numbers from a pollster that leans Dem.

+10 is bad.....you guys are getting pretty desperate.

Oh Phil... you do crack me up sometimes.

Simply stating that the numbers seem too positive for the opposition from two polls that usually lean the other way.

He should probably kill Gaddafi.

Yeah, he should definitely kill him because the jobs report was bad.

While we're on that type of subject, I think I just found a good excuse for why we went into Iraq...

I anticipate the lower the markets continue to slide, the lower his numbers will drop.

Excellent analysis.
