Comparing his ratings to Bush II (not immediately after 9/11 as that would be unfair) is pretty reasonable given that the two were not separated by much in terms of time and the similarities in their political environments.

Comparisons to Reagan and Bush I are just way too old and from a different political era.

Dear lord...

Nobody is comparing him to Bush I, but the comparisons between Reagan and Clinton are perfectly apt. In Clinton's case it was an angry right-wing populist movement that carried away the Dem majorities in 1994.

You simply won't accept ANY ideas that suggest that Obama could win in 2012. What is comes down to is what happens to the economy (and I know you want it to continue to flounder, for more homes to foreclosed upon and jobs lost) and who the Republicans put up. An angry protest movement will NOT send a Republican to the White House in 2013.

AND... I really hope that reasonable Republicans out there realise that there is a chance to win here, but you want to keep listening to the Tea Party and Glen Beck (and his John Birch Society buddies) and nominate someone whose only quality is that they're angry... YOU WILL LOSE.

Btw - I apologise if anyone is offended by this, but it's really unbelievably getting on my nerves.

There is a major difference, however.  Both Clinton and Reagan started out with relatively low poll numbers.  Carter, and GHW Bush had higher start numbers.

Just for comparison:

George W. Bush's favorable rating in the final CBS/NY Times poll taken right before the 2004 election was 48/42

http://www.cbsnews.com/stories/2007/10/12/politics/main3362530.shtml

So Obama's polling behind Bush in favorability right now, two years before his prospective re-election.  Two years after Bush posted a 48/42 favorable/unfavorable, he was down to 34/52.

The problem for Obama is that Obama is not polling well enough personally after only two years in office.  He hasn't even experienced the inevitable decline since most voters say they don't blame him primarily for the economic decline.  They have decided to dislike him personally even without blaming him.

Bush was quite a bit below that in the fall of 2003, and earlier in 2004. Job approval ratings always converge with voting intentions in Presidential campaigns. Hence why Carter saw his go up in 1980 despite losing. Of course he was starting from a very low base.

Rasmussen Obama (National)

Approve 44%, -2.

Disapprove 55%, +1.

"Strongly Approve" is at 25%, -2.  "Strongly Disapprove" is at 45%, u.

Strongly Disapprove is the lowest since the second week of September, during the low week.

It could be a bad sample, but Obama's numbers have declined from two weeks ago.  If it is a bad sample, we should know by Halloween (trick or treat, everyone).

The GOP smear campaign ends on November 2, when the Orwellian ads give way to ads touting Christmas shopping. Then things can be more normal.

yes... that looks like an objective website... lol

Obama is not going to drop out... deal with it.

...if Hillary is going to be president (and I highly doubt it) it'll be in 2017 and no earlier.

Call me naive but I'm still amazed at how angry and rude people get on these political message boards.

As for Obama's approval at 37%, it's not true.  That poll is laughable.

Also, hey poster Andrew Cuomo!

Yes, that poll is laughable.

So is any poll showing his  approval  rating positive.

The newsweek poll is an obvious outlier, Mr. Cuomo.

Favorable/unfavorable in Indiana:

38/57

http://www.epicmra.com/press/Indiana_Oct2010_Media_Freq.pdf

That 37% poll is bs but he's not far too off from that number if these state numbers are correct.

I certainly am an outlier here, Mr. Cuomo.  Have you taken a look at the endorsement map on the homepage of Atlas?  It's dominated by Democratic endorsements.  Simply being a Republican makes me an outlier on this left wing dominated site.

But that's not the only thing.  Not being a person who tracks someone's every move on Atlas every second (literally) using the Online Activity board also makes me an outlier from posters like yourself and others.

You seem be confused as to what the term "left wing" means.

Fox's polling outlet (which is done through other firms) is not at all unreasonable.
