Remember, polls are only important when Rasmussen says his "trends" are down not the actual approval number. Gotta play by conservatives rules or they wont play.

There are different polls using different methods of calculating PJA. RCP averages polls and helps to correct poll biased since some, like Rasmussen, are typically low and some, like Gallup, are typically high. The only problem with the RCP average is that it incorporates old data. In the case of a president whose numbers are moving, the old polls distort the current mood of the nation. I like to use RCP to get an overall opinion of what America thinks and I use Rasmussen to gage movement since they publish daily. The movement since January has been consistently downward with larger change coming from the total disapprove column than the total approve.

And when you consider the number of problems he's handling, the constant
barrage of negative attacks from the GOP and the fact that he's only been in office for 6 months, those numbers look pretty darn good. Thanks for the post...love getting good news!
