Who did they poll? Baby killers? Asshats? Terrorist lovers? I give Zero the grad of zero.

Back when I was in school, 68% was failing.

Oh well, inflation is everywhere.

Wait until the digging is done, and voters discover there’s no pony in the box.

I don't know how Politico could miss "the Bent One", but here's their numbers:
John F. Kennedy, 72 percent
Dwight Eisenhower, 68 percent
Jimmy Carter, 66 percent
Richard Nixon, 59 percent
George W. Bush, 57 percent
Ronald Regan, 51 percent
George H.W. Bush, 51 percent

The amazing thing is that The One is only at 68 percent with all of the positive media attention he has gotten for the past two years.

Dropped 11 point in a month. (they’re probably trying to lowball it anyway).

CNN/Opinion Research had him at 79% a month ago. He must be screwing up big time.

I was wondering the same thing about why his numbers weren’t higher after all, he is “THE ONE”.

And if it had been Bush, the headline would read:

President’s approval rating plummets after less than a week in office.

This must have been before the “I won.” and Rush comments. His immaturity is showing through the cracks early.

Carter, 66 percent

History doesn’t repeat, but it does rhyme.

Yes siree, the Zero had a fantastic week making sure more unborn babies die and setting the table for terrorists to run amok.

Death and destruction will follow in the wake of the great messiah.

And when he gets hid massive pork bridge to nowhere stimulus passed we can have economic collapse as well.

The anti-Bush protest voters (many of them Republican) will peel away first. Once peeled away, they will not return.

I prefer the way Scott Rasmussen, a conservative pollster and Fox News contributor does his Presidential approval index which subtracts only the strongly disapprove from the strongly approve.

Basically what they did for the last 8 years. The difference here being is that GWB couldn't care less and for BHO it's the only thing he has going ;-)

A poll reported on radio the day of inauguration (immaculation?) said Zero was at 80% approval. Even though it’s not the same poll, I like the idea of a 12% drop in less than a week as people realize they put a turkey in the WH.

Gee. And the Obama devotees expected it to be unanimous approval - after all he was approved of by 80% of Americans prior to the coronation inauguration.

DUH1 was suppose to be kind of like Kim Jung Ill - 100% approval by the people and hit an 18 on his first round of golf.

Yup. He ain't goining nowhere but down unless he performs a miracle which he can't. He is nothing but a Chicago pol with incredible luck and a traitorous presstitution racket keeping the hype up as long as they can. The trouble for them is the same with the marketers for Pet Rocks. That mindless sheeple move on thingy....

LOL - Both true and accurate, if paraphrased.
