    Well, anyone who can ignore high gas prices, high food prices, inflation, high unemployment and a bunch of other problems he would be a shoe in.

    Here's the thing.

    People always think the country is "headed in the wrong direction". Just like Congress always has a terrible approval rating as a whole, while individual Congressmen have high approval ratings from their constituents.

    Just like Rasmussen's "Approval Index" is meaningless as well.


    Polling is a tool for political operatives. It's not an indicator of what's going to happen in a year and a half on election day, and it's meaningless if you don't understand how polling works.

    I realize that half the people on this site cream their jeans when Obama's poll numbers drop a point or two, and the other half cream their jeans when his numbers go up, but you're all deluding yourselves.

    Although this thread doesn't offer any real substance what would you prefer to discuss on a political forum? Palin perhaps?

    His disapproval is higher in the poll you quoted, what's your point? It's close? He is toast as long as Unemployment is above 8.5%, they will beat him like a drum with that alone....

    The Post OBL effect is falling fast....

    The first Socialist that the DNC elected is FAILING BAD, I know it must SUCK....

    What Sarah G(angrenous), the certified LIEberrhoidal stooge, can't get thru her brainwashed skull is that there is such a thing as REALITY !!!

    This Obamarrhoidal whackjob, Sarah G(angrenous), is somewhere in outer space.
