Connecticut (Quinnipiac University)Sad

63% Approve
32% Disapprove

Obama gets a 93 - 6 percent approval from Democrats and a 61 - 31 percent thumbs up from independent voters. Republicans disapprove 75 - 19 percent.

From July 16 - 20, Quinnipiac University surveyed 1,499 Connecticut registered voters with a margin of error of +/- 2.5 percentage points. The survey includes 612 Democrats with a margin of error of +/- 4 percentage points and 384 Republicans with a margin of error of +/- 5 percentage points.

For now, I'm Smiley with any poll that shows the president either ahead of, or thereabouts, the % of the popular vote in the states that he carried. I'm not too concerned about the McCain states though I will say the latest Strategic Vision for Georgia is disappointing. Wonder if the demographics were realistic?

PPP Louisiana:

Obama: 44% approve, 50% disapprove
74% of Dems approve, 30% of indeps approve, 12% of Reps approve
91% of AA's approve, 25% of whites approve

Landrieu: 43% approve, 43% disapprove

Jindal: 55% approve

Palin: 46% favorable, 42% unfavorable

Jindal vs Obama: Jindal 54, Obama 40

Palin vs Obama: Palin 49, Obama 42

http://www.publicpolicypolling.com/pdf/PPP_Release_Louisiana_722.pdf

Bad numbers for Palin considering it's Louisiana, one of the few states that swung GOP in '08. Obama's numbers are better than what I expected here.

Yes, I was pleasantly surprised to see his approval rating as high as 44% in Louisiana

According to www.realclearpolitics.com , which averages out 6 recent polls to determine President Obama's job approval, his approval rating is at it's worst, and his disapproval rating is at it's highest, going over 40% for the first time. The President's approval rating has dropped 5 points in July alone. If this rate continues (which is unlikely), Obama's approval rating will be below 50% by mid-August.

For the record, Bush Jr's approvals on Gallup on  7/19-22/01 were 56/33 and Clinton's on 7/19-21/93 were 41/49. Obama's not doing disastrously bad by comparison, although President Bush's numbers held up through August and then, as we all know, shot up after 9/11.

True, but there wasn't the huge drop with Bush that there has been with Obama. That's why it's getting more attention.

Screenshot comparisons are always bad. You have to look at the entire pictures.

If Rasmussen was one-sided, he would be in the low 40's. It's only a few points lower than the national average.

Rasmussen always had Obama behind in the approval ratings then all the other polls.

If it was 1993 you would have been saying the same thing about Bill Clinton, and look what happened In 1996. It's still to early to predict who's going to win.

As of January 1983, Ronald Reagan looked like he was going to be one termer too given that he was riding in at 35% approval according to Gallup

No desparation here. I've always said that Obama will be held to a high standard, such is the ideological nature of America. As for Reagan's approvals, as of January 1983, I'm merely stating a fact

Yes, President Obama will never get re-elected if his approvals keep sliding. It's not like the election is 3 years away and anything can change before then, including a recession ending followed by a recovery. Obama's approvals will be in the 20s by October, obviously.

Considering how badly George W. Botch messed things up, making things far more dangerous for America, it is necessary that President Obama be held to a higher standard than his predecessor.

I almost think that he welcomes a higher standard.

I agree that the President of the United States should be held to a high standard, irrespective of whether they are a Democrat or a Republican but I still think the ideological make-up means Democrats have less margin for error

The sooner this economy shows tangible signs of turning a corner, the better Smiley. Didn't you know that the deficit is all Obama's fault?

I think Republicans need to step back and see how things play out.  Obama's still very early on in his first term and there's more than enough time for him to make these falling numbers go back up again before the next election.  I personally hope they just keep getting lower and lower, because I think everything about him is scary and anti-American and I'm glad my fellow citizens are starting to wise up to his act, but Republicans need to take all of this with a grain of salt or else they'll appear as even bigger fools than they've been acting like for the past six or seven months.
