Look at the trend on total approve. It’s -8, and getting more in line with the strong approve/disapprove numbers.

We also have to realize the closer it gets to Christmas and Hanukkah in full swing, people are spending less time watching//reading news. It seems the only matter people are paying attention to at all is health care.

Wait until after the holidays, his approval will start to take a steady decline once again.

Remember, the "Into the Abyss" measurement tracks overall approval versus strong disapproval. The closer it gets to zero (or even goes below zero), the more you'll see Obama getting thrown under the bus by his own. Witness Howard Dean's dumping him and even Keith Overbite.

The key thing to note here is that, no matter what he's doing, the "right direction" measurement is staying down. That pessimism can be used.

Obviously not. If America woke up he'd be polling -100%.

87% of America is still sleeping.

BAD NEWS FOR BARACK
Tune: "Limbo Rock" Original MIDI

Every lib'ral boy and girl
All the folks in Limbaugh World
Both sides bashing on Barack
All find something they can mock
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

He'll go lower now
He'll go lower now
How low can he go

First he spread the wealth around
Then he bowed down to the ground
Spend a trillion, make it three
Spend it like it grows on trees
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha
Ha ha ha ha ha ha ha

Though he started out on top
Every time the numbers drop
There's a ratings trend that shows
He will fall to record lows
Track his numbers, track his polls
Track the unemployment rolls
All the pollsters on the block
Say it's bad news for Barack

Don't move that phone book far
He needs a polling czar
How low can he go

If you really want to compare contrasting polls, you have to look at the internals and polling methods. Just looking at a bottom line number without knowing how they got there isnt enough.

Agreed. When 2010 dawns overcast and cold, with a national hangover, empty pockets, no jobs, no job prospects, degraded currency, bank overdrafts, higher utility bills and forclosures, and the US Gov and its propaganda media bleat that non-government citizens must ‘sacrifice’, pay more and higher taxes and ‘user fees’, and ‘learn to live with less’ . . .

Easy to understand. It's obviously because they poll likely yahoos -- while Rasmussen polls likely voters.

He got a little bounce from the Oprah appearance. Not surprising. It’ll be back to -18 in no time.

Ye of little faith. Elvis and his son in law Michael have already started negotiations for a recording studio in Havana and will be welcoming the first wave of American tourists with a twist on Blue Hawaii to Blue Cuba.

IT IS REMARKABLE THAT THE PRESS CAN FIND EVERY WOMAN WITH WHOM TIGER HAS HAD AN AFFAIR IN THE LAST FEW YEARS, WITH PHOTOS, TEXT MESSAGES, RECORDED PHONE CALLS, ETC. THEY KNOW NOT ONLY THE CAUSE OF THE FAMILY FIGHT, BUT THEY EVEN KNOW IT WAS A WEDGE FROM HIS GOLF BAG THAT SHE USED TO BREAK OUT THE WINDOWS IN THE ESCALADE. NOT ONLY THAT, THEY KNOW WHICH WEDGE. THIS IS THE SAME PRESS (OR IS IT?) THAT CANNOT LOCATE OBAMA’S BIRTH CERTIFICATE ... OR ANY OF HIS PAPERS WHILE IN COLLEGE OR EXPOSE WHOSE PULLING HIS STRINGS.

The MSM is going to seize on the highest poll that they can to try to prop up their "Messiah"

He's at 49% in the RCP average and his highest number in any poll released in the last 10 days is 50%, except for the AP poll which has him at 56%. Since AP is virtually an annex of the Obama White House Press Office, I don't even regard their horrendously biased polls.

What is not in dispute is that he has fallen farther and faster than any modern President. No matter whose poll you look at.

The problem with the useless KFI640 is they repeat false news every 15 minutes throughout the day. It is silly.

FWIW: Our governor is at 22% approval and our congress at the state level is now 17%.

WABC in New York and WGST in Atlanta (the two stations I've listened to the most) have the same deal.

They both have virtually all-conservative talk lineups but the news breaks are pure MSM BS.

Even Sirius Patriot is the same... the AP news breaks are a farce.

I wish the hosts would dedicate the first five minutes of their broadcasts at the top of the hour to debunking the AP’s hourly lies. Mike Church does sometimes, but that’s about it.

So 72% dont approve of what Barry Dunham-Soetoro is doing...

Another million will exhaust unemployment in January that should be a palpable blow to national morale as we hear from friends and family who are suffering his transitional economy.

Unfortunatly this is what will sweep him to re-election. The popularity poll is the gold standard.
