That's important, and that's who makes elections, not partisan voters who are swayed by hysteria or averaged annual poll numbers.
I agree. They're starting to sound desperate already, aren't they?

Well that's the thing. The OP is taking an average and using that as a means to ignore the current poll numbers which are quiet favorable towards the President. That's a disingenuous argument and should be pointed out. I have a feeling that the entire point of the thread was to try and deflate the recent positive numbers for Obama.

"Yes it's sunny today, but if you look at the average, it wasn't sunny too often this year."

This may be a true statement, but that doesn't take away from the fact that it's sunny outside today.

I am a registered independent. Generally, I end up voting for the lesser of two evils. From my perspective, and at this moment in time, the GOP do not have a viable candidate who can attract my vote.

Absolutely. The Obama-haters are angry about his recent poll numbers, and they'll do whatever it takes to deflect from this news.

Not so, AUM. I would have been glad to take part indicating that Resmussen shows TheWon at -6 today and the same yesterday. However, I have been banned till this evening so I couldn't get in. l go along with you about what they are saying but I promised myself that when he gets below that -6 on Rasmussen I would stop reading their results. The-6 two days in a row tell me that his jump from the speech the other day that was delivered 4 days late has started to rebound. i bet he is over -7 tomorrow.

Do you know how Rasmussen comes by those numbers? I bet not although they explain it all every day.

It will only get worse for the GOP as they continue with their petty antics. In fact I think the GOP in charge of Congress ultimately will lock Obama in for 2012.

RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval


Like I said, no one gets a second term with anything less than a 53% approval rating.

49.9% just ain't gonna cut it.

I didn't know we ever had a President named Carry. Hmmm, do you know something I don't?
