    hummmm....this was before the Q2 GDP number too. It appears, appears mind you that like stretches in the Obama care debate, his exposure may not be helping him, the reverse perhaps.

    He was 46/46 gallup just a week ago, now hes 40/50. Something is going on.

    Poll Date Sample Approve Disapprove Spread
    RCP Average 7/14 - 7/28 -- 44.9 49.8 -4.9



    Gallup 7/26 - 7/28 1500 A 40 50 -10
    Rasmussen Reports 7/26 - 7/28 1500 LV 46 54 -8
    Pew Research 7/20 - 7/24 1501 A 44 48 -4
    CNN/Opinion Research 7/18 - 7/20 1009 A 45 54 -9
    FOX News 7/17 - 7/19 904 RV 45 46 -1
    USA Today/Gallup 7/15 - 7/17 1016 A 45 50 -5
    NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl 7/14 - 7/17 1000 A 47 48 -1
    ABC News/Wash Post 7/14 - 7/17 1001 A 47 48 -1

    *Full disclosure- I have always stood by Rasmussen, they have the better overall record and use the LV vs. A ( anonymous polling sampling). However due to partisan vitriol as to their being in the tank, I have featured Gallup. Careful what you wish for people. ;)

    I don't put much stock in media polls either. So, personally, I see him at 43% splitting the difference between the 2, though that -10 from gallup is definitely an outlier and perhaps speaks to a real shit which Rasmussen has documented for quite a while as to disapproval.

    Yep Obama going down but he is still better than the 25% approval for the republican congress.

    I am suprised it's that high, the dems better think about a primary challenge, Kennedy challenged Carter , Carter won but Reagan beat him so bad that Reagan won before they could close the polls in California. I do believe he is going to be creamed by whoever runs against him. If it comes down to voting for an orange juice can or Obama, my vote goes to the orange juice can. This guy is worse than Carter.

    Why would you post a chart that doesn't distinguish between Republicans and Democrats?

    Umm that was congress not just the dems in congress.


    I do expect that the dems approval figure in congress is similar to the repubs though.
