How can this be? Richardson has a 54% approval rating -- I disapprove of him 100% of the time. Is this polling group located in King County, WA?

Notice that Republicans tend to have stinky approval ratings, while the RATS have good ratings. I suspect that the RAT base has been overstated in these polls.

When we get a legit Governor in Washington his poll numbers will be much better.

Looks like the boys in the Dakotas are doing a heck of a job while Mr. Taft of Ohio is in serious jeopardy.

I was very pleased to see my Rat governor, Blago, with a 36% approval rating, he's up for reelection next year too.

Taft's got a 74% rating?

Granholm's up to 57%? That's the highest I've seen, although I have seen an over 55% rating of "Would consider someone else at the next election."

Taft is retiring IIRC.

The Republican Sec of State Ken Blackwell will run for his seat and will probably win.

Blago's approval ratings have been souring among IL voters. But I feel that he will survive re-election. The Il GOP can't rally around a good candidate to oust him.

And Arizona's Napolitano has an even higher rating at 59% -- must of surveyed all the illegal ailens to get that high a number.

How in the world can Ed Rendull (Big City Union Thug) have an approval rating of 48%?

90% of that must come from his Philly mafia goons...

Survey USA's ratings are to be taken with a grain of salt.

In the 2004 election, one of the phones at GOP headquarters in Lansing was called. I was right there when it happened. We had fun with that one.

Survey USA typically has pretty accurate STATE poll numbers - (if I am recalling correctly). They are one of the polling places to watch for STATE polls during Presidential election years -

Possibly, but the MSM local press probably has a lot to do with it by editorializing against everything a Pub wants to accomplish and praising to high heavens the Rat agendas.

Lots of interesting numbers here .... looks good for Hoeven running for Senate in 2006 .... hopefully Rounds vs. Johnson in 2008.

Some ratings didn't seem easily explained: Matt Blunt??!? And I knew Granholm's #s were down but that's pretty bad.
