What a disturbing piece of work the Right wingers have made, I'm sure that's going to get them In the White House!

Approve .......................................................... 42%

Not Sure.......................................................... 7%

That poll tells me more about the appalling mindset of many Virginia Republicans and conservatives given the findings on that whole "Birther" nonsense

The center is holding nicely in favor of the president. Moderates Smiley approve by 61-31

Compare and contrast the party and ideological base of this poll with the 2008 exit polls:

Party identification PPP [2008 exits]

Democrat 32 [39]; Republican 35 [33]; Independent 33 [27]

In this poll, Democrats approve 92/4; Republicans 3/92; Independents 34/54. Applying the 2008 exit poll base:

Approval rating: Dem 35.88 + Rep 0.99 + Ind 9.18 = 46.05%

Disapproval rating: Dem 1.56 + Rep 30.36 + Ind 14.58 = 46.50%

Ideology PPP [2008 exits]

Liberal 14 [19]; Moderate 41 [46]; Conservative 45 [33]

In this poll, Liberals approve 87/7; Moderates 61/31; Conservatives 10/84. Applying the 2008 exit poll base:

Approval rating: Liberal 16.53 + Moderate 28.06 + Conservative 3.80 = 48.39%

Disapproval rating: Liberal 1.33 + Moderate 13.02 + Conservative 31.92 = 46.27%

Quoting from the PPP release:

Itís important to note that if this poll was of the 2008 electorate Obamaís
approval would be a positive 50/44, but his low numbers among likely voters for this
fallís election reflects Democratic disinterest in the race.


More highlights from this poll:
- Only 53% of Virginia voters believe that Obama was born in the United States, while
24% think he was not and 24% are unsure.
-Only 3% of Republicans approve of his job performance.

I know Republicans disapprove, but 3% approval still seems way to low.

I know Republicans disapprove, but 3% approval still seems way to low.

That's among those likely to vote in this year's gubernatorial election. In 2008, according to the exit poll, 8% of Virginia Republicans cast ballots for Obama

According to Gallup's most recent weekly data, 20% of Republicans, nationally, approve of Obama (33% among liberal/moderate Republicans but only 12% among conservative Republicans)

So, yes, I'm minded to agree that 3% is too low

What a disturbing piece of work the Right wingers have made, I'm sure that's going to get them In the White House!

The right wingers clearly know jack sh**t about socialism; indeed, Michael Lind, a progressive populist in the 'New Deal' tradition, argues that Obama is prisoner to the cult of neoliberalism

I'm tired of hearing democrats whine, If your going tobeat the s*** out of our president when he's in office, then we "Right WINGZ MORALFAGS, TERROSIRTZZZZ" have the same right to do to your president.


First with Conservatives being a threat ot HLS, Now GOPhers hiring mobs to make Specter, Sebelius and other democrats cry.

I mean, Come on. I know osme one will say that the GOP is no better with the stupid birther thing. It's BS

But guess what, I'm one of those 42% of GOPhers who think Obama was born in America.

I am pretty sure that Obama carrying Virginia in 2012 is very unlikely.  It was probably a one time thing.

Nah, I am thinking there is a very good chance he will take it again. It all depends on the margin of victory. NOVA should continue to go strong for him, that's for sure.

One observation from the PPP Virginia poll:

Quote
You must be logged in to read this quote.

Barack H. Obama   Joseph R. Biden, Jr.   Democratic     1,959,532     53%   13
   John S. McCain, III   Sarah Palin   Republican    1,725,005    46%   0

Probably unrelated, but i'm just saying.

But the Dems seem to have selective outrage. It's okay to mock Bush, but not okay to mock Obama.

Mockery of George W. Bush began early when many questioned whether he had been elected fair-and-square. That faded on 9/11. It began anew as reports emerged that the basis of the invasion of Iraq was specious, and intensified after the bungled response to Hurricane Katrina.

Anyone who fouls up as badly as Dubya did, and not only for holding the "wrong" ideology, deserves mockery. But even the great ones (except perhaps Washington) get mockery. Lincoln did, and FDR did.  

Question: is the mockery valid?

If it's funny, I really couldn't care less about mocking. It's when you get into the area of disrespect, then it gets sketchy.

By this standard, it would be okay to mock Obama for botching his swearing in. I can only imagine what it would have been like if Bush had done that.

"Both measures of job performance have improved over a Zogby Interactive survey of 4,470 likely voters nationwide conducted July 21-24. Then, 48% approved and 49% disapproved. In the same poll, on the four-point scale, 47% gave Obama excellent or good grades, and 53% chose fair or poor."
