Map update:



Yellow is for larger disapproval than approval.

What can you expect of a State that voted for Rick Perry?

I wonder what his approval rating in Hawaii is when you compound the native son and incumbency factors?

Not too bad, given that Rasmussen has Obama @ 55% nationally (-7).

But Obama got a 9-10% lower share in TX on Election Day.

They giving Obama a 48 percent approvol Is not bad for him in Texas.From how Perry Is talking you would think It would be 38 percent approval.

That one is pretty questionable, but I suppose you can still disapprove of the job Obama is doing, but still find him "favourable".

It's not actually questionable at all. Favorable numbers are always about 10% above approval numbers until you start getting really, really unpopular. Now, Kos is reporting favorable numbers instead of approval numbers because they look better and most people don't know the difference, so in that sense it's dishonest. But the numbers aren't a lie.

In case someone wants to see what an 80% approval rating looks like in a substantial state if one rounds up 75% to 80%.

It looks like an outlier, so back to what I really think it is (round 75% down to 70%):



75% is hard to get even as an outlier even for a Democrat in New York State.

That seems pretty strange. It makes me interested in seeing some more polls out of Colorado.

When you want a Colorado poll and you get it, you don't have cause to carp about it being something other than what you like.

If they dont like him then they shouldnt have voted for him in November.  They knew exactly what they were getting and if they didnt like it then they could have voted for McCain and help put him in the White House.  The attitude these days of voting for somebody and then deciding they dont like them is just shameful.  They knew what they were getting.

The numbers for Mark Udall are even stranger. He is in negative territory (41%-46% ), even though he hasn't done anything controversial, not to mention it's just a few months since he was sworn in.

Don't be shocked if the Democrat's approvals don't remain sky high forever. Remember, the Republicans had a lot of negative approvals for congressional candidates who had done nothing controversial as well. If Obama is not particularly popular in Colorado, then it's no surprise that the Democratic senator is running behind him.

Hmmm, I wasn't expecting Colorado to be so low. I know it's only one poll, but judging by it, Republicans will at least have a shot to win it back in 2012.

You should not base 2012 predictions on polls that are 44 months out. These are just for fun. Your posts will only get bumped in the future and laughed at.

He said "a shot." He didn't say that Obama would lose Colorado.

I'm not stupid. If you look at my post, I said "I know it's only one poll" and "a shot". I'm not making an predictions. I'm just going off this one poll, which I obviously know is premature. Honestly though, if the election was today, I know Colorado would vote for Obama. But if the Colorado ratings are this much lower than the national ratings, we could have a good chance, even if Obama has a 50% approval rating nationwide.
