    *shrugs* it appears that his recent week of press conferences and involvement in the debt. ceiling process may not be helping and yes the unemployment report which came out on July 8th may not have helped either.

    If he were 'winning' the debate I would expect a higher approval or at the very least flat numbers...(?)

    The Gallup disapproval at -8 has not been this high since mid April.

    I think a big issue for Obama is many people compare Obama to Bush as a way to say "Look who is worse." What people don't seem to realize if that in order to make Obama not seem so bad, let me say that again... *In order to not make Obama seem so bad* they have to compare him to a president (Bush) that even Republicans didn't like.

    I really do wonder if Obama has what it takes to win in the GE.

    If things continue then come November would be the time for a Democrat to challenge him.

    I have no doubt that "Billary" is waiting in the wings

    Aug 14, 2011 - President Obama hit a dubious milestone today, sinking below a 40% approval rating in the Gallup daily tracking poll.

    I thought he was just awful in the debt ceiling debate.

    It was after then when I started to look at the Republican candidates more seriously.

    well, here we are;)

    from Real Clear today August 23-

    RCP Average 8/2 - 8/22 -- 43.3 50.8 -7.5

    Gallup 8/20 - 8/22 1500 A 38 54 -16
    Rasmussen Reports 8/20 - 8/22 1500 LV 44 56 -12
    the chart at rthe end of the verbiage shows the downturn and the timing...

    June 14-17 he was at 47-47 the next 6 weeks were the Thunderdome weeks, the debt. ceiling debates, and Obamas 4 or was it 5 appearances on national Television….I have gone back and googled, looking for any other events of consequence that may have had a factor in this, but lets face it, that was the donnybrook of donnybrooks.

    It’s funny, the media tells us that though Obama didn’t exactly cover himself with glory, the TP and reps etc. are to blame for a bad deal and the S&P downgrade, people are mad…some random thoughts are;

    ……. the media is in a bubble, the media is trying to provide cover fire, it doesn’t matter who is to blame, even if the reps are to blame obama is not unscathed, in fact, this may have been a turning point that puts him under 40 and settles him in the 30's:eusa_eh:

    ....what got me about that polling from gallup is his gallup negatives…and looking back at gallups negatives, 6 was the high since the election, since the debt deal its fallen and stayed at 12-14-16.

    Rasmussen the ' right wing hate' outfit had him at what Gallup had him inching up tothis level or near ahead of gallup, and now even gallup has surpassed them by 4 points…*shrugs*.............................when Maureen Dowd quotes a dem operative she has spoken with as having alluded to Obama as Carter, something has shifted, though people ‘personally’ like him, that ‘like’ paradigm may have has shifted from I like him and am pulling for him too, I like him. But…..well, he aint exactly making it work……..:doubt:

    (According to the professor, Obama's digging his own grave. Taking the debt deal, then running off to his scheduled $35,800 per couple birthday bash, then off to MVY is leaving a sour taste in more than a few mouths.)

    "I was right about taking the debt deal

    Posted by William A. Jacobson Tuesday, August 23, 2011 at 1:50pm

    I was right when I said Republicans should take the debt deal, as bad as it was, because otherwise any negative consequences would provide Obama an excuse for his own failures.

    This decline is not written in stone, and surely Team Obama (Axelplouffe and MSM) will keep trying to blame everyone else. But taking the deal kept the nation focused on the shortcomings of Obama’s policies by not precipitating a crisis which only would have served as a diversion.

    Oddly enough, freeing Obama up run off to fundraisers and lavish vacations in August while the rest of the nation suffered has solidified the (correct) perception of an administration out of touch and out of control."
