Old numbers!

Only Rasmussen and Gallup are new today, and only Rasmussen polls "likely voters" vs. Gallup's "all adults". "All adults" don't vote.


The 2008 contest was a 7 point margin. Easy enough to see which poll favors Democrats and which is spot on.

RealClearPolitics - Election 2008 - General Election: McCain vs. Obama

The 60% approval rating the AP poll is showing is complete BS. This moron has Jimmy Carter written all over him.

I'm curious how you come by that conclusion.

Rasmussen @ 48% is closer to Gallup @ 51%, Reuters @ 49%, Pew @ 50%, NBC @ 52%, Quinn @ 52%, Newsweek @ 48% THAN the AP poll @ 60%.

Now, which one is the outlier?

I rest my case.

Ras is way out in left field with a 52% disapproval...

You're both assuming what was true last week is true this week.

I understand he got a shot in the arm from UBL's untimely demise, but that was then.


The other poll which came out yesterday (Reuters/Ipsos) essentially agrees with Rasmussen, although I don't think all "adults" should be counted.


The 60% approval AP poll has been debunked already.

47% of Americans are Democrats and 29% Republicans, since when?


Take out the BS AP poll and the three new polls all agree he's at about 49% and headed south.

It sure beats taking your polling sample from a union hall or welfare line.
