North Carolina (PPP)Sad

49% Approve
44% Disapprove

PPP surveyed 767 North Carolina voters from July 10th to 12th. The survey’s margin of error is +/-3.5%. Other factors, such as refusal to be interviewed and weighting, may introduce additional error that is more difficult to quantify.

This is actually partially true. The image of Obama touring the world, instead of focusing on domestic issues probably has hurt him. If he makes a few grandiose speeches on economic policy and the direction of the country his approval should bump up a little.

... and still close. I thought that the Lyceum poll was an outlier.

Face it: if Obama is close in Texas in 2012, the GOP nominee is in deep trouble. I can think of at least one of whom many now tout as a likely challenger for the nomination (Barbour) who would probably lose.  Gingrich probably also loses Texas.

this map must be independent not partisan. ANd BTW the matchup was against Romney who has -at the moment- no appeal in texas. If it was against Huckabee it might be between +5 and +10 for huckabee ...

No. Their final poll on Nov. 3 had it 50-45 for Obama and they got the Congress about right.

According to Rasmussen, who got the '08 election correct, Obama has a 52% Approval, 47% Disapproval rating. But this is likely voters, all adults give him a higher rating.

Also, more people strongly disapprove then strongly approve of him, acccording to the poll.

On a side note, it says Bob McDonnell has a very narrow lead over Creigh Deeds.

EDIT, it also says the GOP leads on the Generic Congressional Ballot, 40%-37%

His approval ratings are looking good in the Northeast.

Given the New Jersey polls over the last few months and trying to excuse personal observation, I would say he is late 50's here, with the likely voter support in the mid 50s. NJ got hit hard, economically, with Corzine not helping matters, so that is pretty much why he isn't in the 60's.

I don't think his approvals will get much lower here, aside from further economic troubles or something blowing up in Obama's face. It will probably rebound, even.

Well see, now you've given Ford one poll to cling onto above all others and beat everyone over the head with. What have you done?

I'd say his approval rating is in between the Gallup and Rasmussen numbers.
