The new Pew poll looks likely to push Obama over the 50% approval barrier at RCP.

It hasn't because they're hacks...

Or maybe it's because Pew is at best a mediocre pollster.

That doesn't change the fact that RCP is a hack website...

RCP is fine, but a number of these polls are garbage.

I agree that a number of these polls are garbage including all Rassy, Gallup and ARG trolljobs, but RCP is a right-wing hack website and you should look at their article headlines to get a better idea of where they stand...

According to Mondale84 (who still wants a recount), all polls are wrong.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 51%, +2.

Disapprove 48%, -2.

"Strongly Approve" is at 31%, +1.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at  40%, -2.


It could be tied to Romney's 47% comment.  Tracking shows 47%/45% Obama in the horse race poll.

No, those people who still want a recount of 1984 have no respect for democracy.

Approve: 46%, -2


Disapprove: 48%, +2

I would be tempted to ask Leif if he was referring Obama, but I won't.

Gallup has a 6 day cycle, so a lot of that is before the 47% comment.  It might either a reaction to the Islamic world situation or a response to the unemployment numbers.

Who is Leif? And why would he be stupid enough to think that Obama was done for when he has healthy leads in all the swing states and solid national leads in all but a few outlier polls that aren't very good?

Ah, he's this guy:


Apparently, he didn't realize he was channeling Ann Richards.

I suspect they will.  He's made for that kind of thing, and I wouldn't be surprised if Romney gaffed.

Which means RCP will today show 50% approval for Obama for a very long time.

(Unless they remove every poll from their average, except for Gallup and Rasmussen ... Tongue)

The updated RCP average will be 50.0-46.9 approval for Obama.

This is the first time since June 7, 2011 that Obama has 50% approval in the RCP average.

Approve: 51%, +4


Disapprove: 43%, -3

Head to head, Obama 48% (+1), Romney 46% (-1).


Probably the shift coming off the 47% remark.  If Rasmussen is correct, it will be ephemeral.

Can anyone please tell them to throw out their 7-day (!!!) rolling average of registered (!!!) voters, with only 6 weeks until the election ?
