Why is Gallup so different from Rasmussen?  Is it the Adult vs. Likely voters thing?

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

Gallup is showing higher than just about everyone else. They are the highest on the current RCP by 3 points.

Ras numbers are LV, so that's why they are low. The disapproval rating is higher from the machine polling, as well. I know it's been said before, but for some reason people keep forgetting.

51-49 seems way too low for Obama's approval rating.  I'd say it's around 55-45 right but that's probably a very inaccurate guess on my part.

It might be just noise, guys.

Nevertheless, until Obama starts becoming fiscally responsible, I can't see his approval rating going up.

Does anyone know whether they polled likely, registered, or adult voters?

Is RV the most accurate of methods at the moment?

It seems as if LVs are the least favorable toward Obama, RVs are kind of middle of the road, and Adult Voters favor Obama.  Am I correct in my assessment.

RAS had Mccain gaining In PA last fall.They had people supporting Drill Baby Drill.How well
did that go.As a rule I Ignore RAS untill we are In General Elections then they can be taken
seriously.As for CBS/NYTimes polls calling them liberal orginazations are a joke.The New York
Times buried the surveilance programs till 2005.And If you think CBS Is proObama that Is
news to the Democratic base.

Not really.  His final poll (if I'm not mistaken) showed Obama+8.

NYT/CBS polls: LIBERAL SOURCE, LOLOL.
Rasmussen polls: Completely accurate and fair.

Also, since Republicans have engaged in tactics of organized disinformation, disruption, and outright lying, this should hardly be surprising.

Just like Democrats did with social security reform in 2005. Grin

Oh, we hang congressmen in effigy and brought guns to protests?

Silly me, you know my memory.

No, you just hung bush in effigy and burned him too while you were at it. And last I checked, it's not illegal to carry a gun.

Don't forget that someone hung Sarah Palin and McCain in effigy in West Hollywood during the campaign.

Yikes:

8/12/09:
48% approve
52% disapprove

I still don't understand why Rasmussen doesn't have a registered voter model.

This poll is even more exaggerated than Gallup, which is a little exaggerated as it is.

At this point, I think Obama's approval is somewhere in between Rasmussen and Gallup, tilting a little bit to Gallup....say, around Obama+7

I think Florida probably wont go for Obama again in 2012.  Florida, North Carolina, and Virginia were all probably a one time deal for Obama. 
It depends on who is nominated and how much the economy recovers. If it is Huckabee vs. Obama, then prepare for a ridiculous blowout in Virginia and Florida.

If Obama's approval will be in the mid-low forties by 2012, there won't be a "ridiculous blowout" by any means.

Gallup drops again today:

Approve 52%(-1)
Disapprove 41%(+1)

I really think we should ignore these numbers unless there is some really important news.  They fluctuate.

Obama undeniably got a bounce.  We'll see how long it holds...
