Today's poll...........47% overall approval. I am surprised it is this high!

"Overall, 47% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. That’s the lowest level of total approval yet recorded. The President’s ratings first fell below 50% just a few weeks ago on July 25. Fifty-two percent (52%) now disapprove.
Seventy-seven percent (77%) of Republicans disapprove along with 65% of those not affiliated with either party. Seventy-eight percent (78%) of Democrats offer their approval. Most women (51%) offer their approval while most men (56%) disapprove."

What republican or 33% can sit there and say they are republican and say they support him? I suspect they have no clue what a republican or conservative is.

Probably moderate women and minorities who are registered Republican, especially if they registered Republican for religious reasons, rather than economic.

It's hard to admit to making a bad decision, even in a blind poll. One of my friends feels everything Obama has done is better than anything Bush ever did. Yet, he is clueless to anything that has been or is being done, just blind support. He pisses me off, he inadvertently admitted one day he voted the way he did because he wouldn't vote another "white man" into office if there was an alternative and there was. Simple as that.:|err

Long term solution

First, we kill all the lawyers.
Second, we eliminate all political party affiliations. Rep, Dem, Ind, etc etc. We poll people as AMERICANS, period. We elect people as AMERICANS, period. We create a fast track system for recalling our elected officials, fast track as in 2 weeks after they stop representing the people that elected them. We clean house, literally, weeding out people that represent their "party" above the "people" they actually work for, US.....Pass a law that says no "bill" will pass w/o 3 months of discussion with the PEOPLE, just as the townhall meetings are going on now.

Feel free to add your .02 cents worth to this idea......Ray

PS Yeah I know the lawyer deal was first said by Socrates.....How far ahead of his time was that statement?

I wonder if that same poll was done by Newsweek or Time the results would be the same. And I wonder if they would publish the results?

These small polls are crap. 1500 "likely" voters:)sphss Hardly representative. When you look at the yahoo poll with over 2.4 mil. votes, I'd bet his approval is realistically in the 20-25% range.

The stat that jumps out at me is the 16.22% that voted for Obama, which makes me question the demographics of the poll. There must be a significant amount of Obama supporters somewhere, right? I'm still puzzled where they are. Every forum I go to, and all of the Americans I work with (mech engineer working on contract in Canada, but all coworkers are in Iowa, Nebraska, and Illinois), at LEAST 75-80% despise Obama and his policies. Granted there are always a couple token radical lefties, but not the +50% needed to win.

The Rasmussen is a scientific poll and is validated.....yes the yahoo poll has many more praticipating but it is not validated scentifically. Rasmussen has been very accurate since 2001 when he started on his own. His polls have been very acurate perdictors. check his site, www.rasmussenreports.com.

I don't see how 1500 people "+/- 4%" are indicative of rest of America. Have you ever been polled? I haven't. I'm just saying, there's a serious backlash happening and I'd put money on the fact that it's even lower than 37%. Like Snoop said, where are these polls conducted? You go somewhere like Colorado Springs, CO and I guarantee you'd get 80-90% disapproval.

I agree, I would like to see a larger validated poll. I have signed up on several sights for polls but have never been called. I agree.....I bet where I am from and Old Tex is from they are pushing the 80 mark as well.

I live in a golf course subdivision of around 2,500. I saw maybe 3 O stickers or signs and 100's of Mac/Palin.

Even among local blacks it's near 50% either way. Parts of Houston have Liberal enclaves but TX for the large part is anti-O.....You don't hear him plannig any visits down hear do ya?????:)devil SOB knows better......:|err The long legged Mac Daddy comes to Texas, you'll be spending the next 6 months listening to people arguing whether "Tar and Feathering and Run out of Town on a Rail" is really a racial act.....:)devil:)hand

One word: Montrose :)gay:(
And generally inside the loop. I tried to stay from that part of town as much as possible.
If I ever have to live in Houston again, it'd be on the North end or down in the Clear lake area
