Gallup released their annual state-by-state presidential approval numbers yesterday, and the results should have 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue very worried. If President Obama carries only those states where he had a net positive approval rating in 2011 (e.g. Michigan where he is up 48 percent to 44 percent), Obama would lose the 2012 election to the Republican nominee 323 electoral votes to 215.
Gallup adds:
Overall, Obama averaged 44% job approval in his third year in office, down from 47% in his second year. His approval rating declined from 2010 to 2011 in most states, with Wyoming, Connecticut, and Maine showing a marginal increase, and Massachusetts, Wisconsin, Minnesota, New Jersey, Arizona, West Virginia, Michigan, and Georgia showing declines of less than a full percentage point. The greatest declines were in Hawaii, South Dakota, Nebraska, and New Mexico.

The OP's poll link is going solely off of approval numbers which isn't an accurate assessment. Hell even Karl Rove has Obama dominating Willard

That's misleading to go by approval. If that were an accurate indicator, Bush would have lost to Kerry by a substantial margin. Approval also includes people from the left who dislike Obama for pandering to the right and people who personally hate Obama but are more scared of the GOP.

I believe it will still be a close election with the nation ideologicaly divided right down the middle. However, Obama has definitely hurt himself with his support of gays. He has lost a lot of Democrats with that bone-headed move. He is unwise. We need a president with wisdom and good judgment.

I have to say, the Romney campaign strategy to send volunteers (henceforth known as the 101st Keyboard Kommandos) out to spam right wing circle jerk forums is probably the most forward-thinking tech-based strategy any GOP candidate has had since the days of Richard Viguerie.
