Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 46%, +4.

Disapprove 57%, -3.

"Strongly Approve" is at 30%, +3.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 43%, -3.


A bad sample has dropped out.

103% ?

It´s 46-54 (+4, -3).

Gallup is at 46-46 (+2, -2) today.

Some wild swings lately ...

Maybe something related to 9/11 remembrance?

9/11 is still a GOP "day". In view of the 9/12 Tea Party rallies, so is 9/12.

Hardly. 9/11 is an emotional day. Much more likely that Obama's approval goes up slightly in the wake of his speech.

I didn't know of any speeches today. If 2008 is any indication, the more that people hear President Obama, the more they like him.

Question: does he have any coattails?

Colorado Survey of 750 Likely Voters
Conducted September 12, 2010
By Rasmussen Reports

1* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

    29% Strongly approve
    16% Somewhat approve
       7% Somewhat disapprove
    46% Strongly disapprove
       1% Not sure

Nevada State Survey of 750 Likely Voters

Conducted September 13, 2010

By Rasmussen Reports

 

1* How would you rate the job Barack Obama has been doing as President… do you strongly approve, somewhat approve, somewhat disapprove, or strongly disapprove of the job he’s been doing?

34% Strongly approve
12% Somewhat approve
  5% Somewhat disapprove
46% Strongly disapprove
  3% Not sure






Key:


<40% with Disapproval Higher: 40% Orange (50% if 60%-69% or higher disapproval, 90% if >70%); 90% red if >70%
40-43% with Disapproval Higher: 50% Yellow  
44% with Disapproval Higher: 40% Yellow  
45-49% with Disapproval Higher: 30% Yellow  
<50% with Approval Equal: 10% Yellow (really white)

<50%  Approval greater: 30% Green
50-55%: 40% Green
56-59%: 60% Green
60%+: 80% Green
DC, what else could you expect?


Months (All polls are from 2010):

A -  January     G -  July
B -  February   H -  August
C -  March        I -  September
D -  April          J  -  October
E -  May           K -  November
F -   June         L -   December

 

S - suspect poll (examples for such a qualification: strange crosstabs, likely inversion of the report (for inversions, only for polls above 55% or below 45%...  let's say Vermont 35% approval or Oklahoma 65% approval), or more than 10% undecided. Anyone who suggests that a poll is suspect must explain why it is suspect.

Partisan polls and polls for special interests (trade associations, labor unions, ethnic associations) are excluded.

Z- no recent poll

MY CURRENT PREDICTION OF THE 2012 PRESIDENTIAL ELECTION:




District of Columbia, assumed to be about a 90% win for Obama, 3                  
deep red                  Obama 10% margin or greater  156
medium red              Obama, 5-9.9% margin   52
pale red                   Obama, margin under 5%  119
white                        too close to call  17
pale blue                  Republican  under 5%   23
medium blue             Republican  5-9.9% margin  52
deep blue                 Republican over 10%   114  



44% approval is roughly the break-even  point (50/50) for an incumbent's win.  I add 6% for approval between 40% and 46%, 5% at 46%, 4% between 47% and 50%, 3% for 51%, 2% for 52% or 53%, 1% for 54% and nothing above 55% or below 40% for an estimate of the vote.

 This model applies only to incumbents, who have plenty of advantages but not enough to rescue an unqualified failure.

Pbrower, You'll use a Geoprgia poll that is very unusualy high, but not one that is on par with the region, and close to what older polls had shown it at?

SurveyUSA is way out of line with Rasmussen.

But that last poll kinda seemed way out of line with how the state had been trending in the polls and you still used it.

Handel would've been much better than Deal.  That, and she's an "in the closest" supporter of the homosexuals.  I voted for her in the primary.  Now that she's lost, (never thought I'd say this), my vote is most likely going to Barnes.  Deal is too risky.

PPP Released a National Poll:  Obama is 47-49 Approval

Interesting numbers include a Rebound for Obama with older voters, winning them 55-40 along with Young voters 61-34, but he gets crushed with the Boomers, 42-56.  Older Voters also approve of Obamacare by 48-40, so it's probably a bad sample.  Also, Hispanics only approve of Obamacare 50-45, which also might be a bad sample.
