Maybe everyone heard that he and the Mooch were vacating the White House and didn’t realize it was another vacation.
This is why you shouldn’t look at any individual poll day-to-day. The fluctuations can be wild. For example, Rasmussen had Obama +4 in favorability a couple weeks ago, defying all other polls. Realclearpolitics does a nice average of many different polls and plots the average over time, giving a good sense of how the Marxist popularity is trending. As well, this average very closely (within a percentage point) predicted the outcomes of both the 2008 and 2012 Presidential elections.
It could be that Obama hit a low ebb when he was threatening to go to war to stop ethnic Russians from joining Russia. Now that Obama’s hard at work vacationing, more recreational warmongering seems less likely.
At the same time Rasmussen is showing a 2 point swing against him.
It’s all hogwash, he sucks on stilts.
Gallup is BS. What next? “Obama has 90% approval ZOMG!”
Maybe he didn’t say something stupid today. Well, at least in public. That’s gotta be worth a few points.
Of course he’s going to show higher when he is out on the golf course than he will when he’s in the White House screwing things up.
Obama's poll numbers are plumbing new historical depths.
He had a big bounce to $^ % approval about 2 weeks ago; tax refunds going out?
Of course, he's been out of town. He is always more popular when he is on vacation and not actively doing damage at that moment.
If you take a look at the results over time, you don't see a huge change in trend:
When looking at statistics like this, as other folks have said, you should look at it from many different viewpoints (i.e., multiple polls). You should also not pay too much attention to any one individual stat, but should look at trends over time. In this case, the trend is that his disapproval is rising and his approval is shrinking. The trend is that he is upside down. You can get all caught up on whether there is a spike or a trough, but those trends are there.
Of course, not that it really matters since he's in his second term.
Why do you even follow Gallup?
The given is (and this has been true since Billy Jeff was president) that around 43% of the electorate will forever love the dimorat politician of the day. All others will be scattered around.
If O only has 43 to 45 percent approval it means he has his base......woo hoo big news
That’s because those polled heard Sarah say “end of an error...” and thought it really ended right then and there!
Its mooch’s new blonde hair dye
every hairstyle change is worth an uptick in the polls
maybe the low info voters think barry is hanging out with Beyounce
That’s why they call it statistics. If our side thinks that the liberal class and all of it’s associated grievance groups have gone away we are dreaming. Obamacare or no Obamacare. BTW, Gallup had Romney winning the election in their final poll.
Obama’s poll numbers seem to go up when he golfs instead of destroying our nation.
Got to be the laziest warmonger in world history.
Gallop is garbage
They didn’t want to pay long distance and only polled the upper west side in Manhattan.
You forget that there is a margin of error in every poll. This one happens to be fairly high, +3 or -3. So it’s something that does happen sometimes, where a 7 point swing could just have easily been a 1 point swing in reality.
I believe that Gallup made his polls irrelevant during the Gore/Bush election and has missed accurate polling ever since always leaning toward the Democrat/Liberal ideology. Gallup is nothing but a mouthpiece and justification for the left.
What you should do is look at the polls trend over weeks/months/years because day to day is just too volatile.
