He gave himself a B+ grade on his performance so far. I guess he was grading on the curve.

I was adressing the daily fluctuations, not the trend downward. You know if Harry Reid grabs a microphone and starts squeaking on TV when Obama is, for the most part, silent that day, I think it could cause a big daily change in approval for Obama. I'm not so sure this President/House/Senate control of everything is working out for them like they thought it would.

Except that ALL the polls are within a point or two of each other.

RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

I hear he's going down to 44% in the Rasmussen poll.

How about Gallup? 48% Marist & Qiunnipiac? 46% CNN? 48%

Conveniently ignoring your hero Dick Cheney's response to polls?


SO?

Yeah that just cracked me up. Astounding.
Maybe he actually believes his own hype?

Now for those who don't know how this comes about please try to realize that only 23% of the people who were polled rated Obama very strong approval and 42% rated him very strongly poor. I think that surely tomorrow will find him a bit higher since his speech in Norway the other day wasn't bad and the daily polls are usually about three days behind good things.

A record setter two days in a row is really something.

Stopped paying attention to Rasmussen's polls when I realized they either couldn't add or had no conception of what 'percent' meant.

Gosh thanks.
