Something doesnt add up, by reading posts from the right wing nut jobs on this board you would think Obama is at Bush levels of 25% approval and 71% disapproval

Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

Must we constantly rehash "daily" numbers while ignoring the real measure? Trend is where it's at. Sorry to rain on your parade.

Finger on the scale.

Just look at all the other polls that show the same trend.

RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval

Rasmussen is the only outLIAR as usual. They have Obama at 50%. Predictable.

Poll: Less faith in Obama's economic abilities - USATODAY.com

Quote:
WASHINGTON — The public's confidence in President Obama's ability to handle the economy is eroding amid concern about higher federal spending and expanding government power, a USA TODAY/Gallup Poll finds — a development that could complicate his efforts to push a health care plan through Congress in the next few weeks.

In the survey, taken Friday through Sunday, Americans by 49%-47% disapprove of his handling of the economy, and by 44%-50% disapprove of his handling of health care.


His overall approval rating was 55%, the lowest of his young presidency. That puts Obama 10th among the 12 post-World War II presidents at this point in their tenures. When he took office, he ranked 7th.
10th!! USAToday/GALLUP poll.

They must not have included this one either - USA/Gallup @ 55%.

The actual number is not as relevant as the trend in a majority of the polls.
