    Congress is spending money like a drunken sailor. making bills in secret behind closed doors. Obama has slim margin here to make errors with Congress. When he gains more leverage he will clamp down on their spending ... I hope and I think he will. all cannot be blamed on Obama. He has made mistakes IMO but overall I give him a "B" so far. If he has some of the successes of Clinton and Reagan he'll be fine.

    "It's the bailouts stupid"

    The bailouts have truly pissed people off like I've never seen. No matter who you talk to, or what political persuasion they may be, they hate the bailouts. At least the vast majority do. Obama better be careful. If the economy doesn't straighten out a little, the deficit continues to rise, and he ends up raising taxes, the public will turn on him. Dick Morris said over a month ago that Obama would be at 30% next year. Morris is wrong far more than he's right, but you're beginning to at least see where it's possible. Unlikely, but possible.

    Your post here could also go into the Pelosi thread ... Obama still needs to politically cap Pelosi.

    interesting

    but hey, why not just take the word of someone who could give a flying flunk about honesty when we've got a picture of what we wished were true?

    Game, set and match!

    Thank you.

    All you have to do to understand why Rassmussen is such an outlier is to look at the content of the ads and testimonies on its website. A veritable who's who of the neo-Con movement.

    Funny, not too long ago they were running a poll that was directly from the perspective of the liberal point of view :rolleyes:

    Doesn't mean that Rasmussen supports Socialism at all. They could be trying to use the poll to claim that Americans' moral values are being ruined by Obama.

    Look up Scott Rasmussen - - he received $95k in compensation from the RNC in 2004 and $45k from the W. Bush campaign that same year. Look at his website and the ads all around it - - a veritable who's who of the Neo Conservative movement.

    Look at sdaniels' link with all the other pollsters (including FoxNews with its 60-30% approval-disapproval measurement for Obama).

    It's more than a little obvious.

    If it walks like a duck, quacks like a duck, swims like a duck- it's a duck.

    You wanted a left wing oriented poll, you got one :rolleyes:

    obama's poll numbers are marginally OK. They are right around what is typical at this point which is actually bad given how desperate his voters were for him to succeed. It's too early for them to give up on their "too big to fail" loser president.

    60-30 (Fox) is "marginally OK"?

    Granted the 54-46 from Rasmussen is "marginally OK", but as shown in sdaniels' comprehensive rundown from RealClearPolitics.com - - Rasmussen is the far outlier amongst 12+ major pollsters.

    I saw a graph with obama and other presidents at this point in their terms and he was slightly above average in comparison, basically right in the middle.

    I understood that he meant historically low for obama, which admittedly is a short history.

    If you look at Sdaniels link, and open it up for Obama's complete history of his approval rating, you can see he's trending downward. He's at an average of +25, so look at his past months and see where his numbers are mostly sitting, versus now. Furthermore, click on the individual polls, and see where his numbers are trending there as well. In each, his disaproval rating has mostly risen by double. Historically speaking, presidents always enjoy good ratings early in their presidency. I'd venture to guess that Obama will get a longer leesh than most, considering both the times, and the histroical significance of his election. Picking one poll out of 10 is cherry picking. So I think looking at the trends more fluidly, will give you a better idea of what's going on. Either way, it's a poll, and we all know what I think of those.
