Now of course, Obama could, in theory, do something to temporarily bring those numbers up, but as time and new information yield new perspective, I believe history will continue to view Bush more and more favorably, while Obama has already, I think, performed so abysmally, and done so much damage, that he will eventually be generally recognized as one of the worst if not the worst presidents in history. Though he still could do something to eke out an edge over Carter.
Only time will tell. But, in the meantime, to our Bush-Hitler-Chimpy-McHalliburton “progressive” friends — stick that in your bongs and smoke it! :)
Update: Other Interesting Poll Results:
In another poll of 15,000 adults, Rasmussen finds that for the first time ever, more Americans identify themselves with Republicans than with the Democrat party by 36 to 34.7 percent. This is big. Even in the Republican landslide of 1994, Democrats still led the GOP in party identification. Politicians would do well to not fool themselves — Americans are really, really angry at what Obama and the Democrats have done.
Keep this poll in mind when you read other poll results in the near future. If the percentages of Republicans vs Democrats in their samples are not close to these numbers, you will know the poll is biased, and by how much.
Still another poll shows that nearly HALF of Democrats think the government should control the entire economy. Not going to be hearing much about THAT poll from the Ministry of Truth, aka the “mainstream” media, as it makes it much harder to argue that the Democrat party is not controlled by socialists. It is.
And lastly, when Barack Obama wins election by 53%, it’s portrayed by the Ministry of Truth as a landslide, giving Obama a mandate to change whatever he damn well wants. Yet when 54% of Americans say Obama’s ban on offshore drilling is going to drive up the cost of gas, the activist media calls it a “slim majority”.
This is why I have given up the term “media bias” — it’s not a strong enough term. It connotes an almost unintentional air. The truth is we have an activist media, conscientiously trying to help Democrats and hurt Republicans.

Obama hits new low: 41% approve, 58% disapprove.
64% say country is headed in the wrong direction.
Generic Ballot Average: Republicans 48% Democrats 40%.
68% support smaller government, lower taxes.
Democrats abandoning Obama on tax hikes.
Rubio 43%, Crist 29%, Meeks 23%. (Keep in mind, however, that I fully expect Democrats to abandon Meeks and support Crist if these numbers don’t change soon.)
Virginia Democrat: “If you don’t tie our hands, we’ll keep stealing.”
But don’t get cocky! Get involved! Democrats have a long documented record of convictions of vote fraud, registration fraud, voter intimidation, campaign finance violation, violence, vandalism, lies, ballot box stuffing, October surprises and every other dirty trick in the book. I fully expect this year and 2012 to be worse than ever before.
If we want to undo the damage Democrats have done, we have to win every single race we can at both the federal and state level. And when Democrats are such dirty cheats, that means we have to win BIG. As someone said, “if it isn’t close, they can’t steal it.” And a great many of these races will be close.
If you haven’t been already, now is the time to donate and volunteer for the candidates/party you support.

Cruising for the 30′s. Naturally, Gallup tries to hide that fact by burying it in the 5th paragraph. Indeed, the author is so intent on protecting Obama that you have to go to Real Clear Politics to learn that Obama’s disapproval is up to 53% in this poll.
Keep in mind, this isn’t a poll of registered voters or likely voters, but all adults — the group most likely to support Obama.
In response, MSNBC is now charging that Gallup is racist.

Turns out Americans are increasingly deciding they don’t care for Obama’s “whether you like it or not” presidency:
President Obama’s overall job approval rating has fallen to an all-time low of 44 percent, down five points from late March…
…When it comes to health care, the President’s approval rating is even lower — and is also a new all-time low. Only 34 percent approved, while 55 percent said they disapproved…
… Just 42 percent said they approved of how President Obama is handling the economy, only one point above January’s all-time low. Half of the public disapproves. [read more]
And that’s from CBS, the journalistic equivalent of the royal wipers from Coming to America. When even CBS can no longer hide the decline, you know the Obama presidency is in real trouble.

Many Republicans are fretting over recent polling (RCP average Obama +5.9) in the presidential election, fearing, as some pundit on CNN declared, “the election is over”. Liberals, on the other hand, are quite cocky.
But let’s hold on for just a second and put things in persepective. A quick google search indicates things may not be as dire as Republicans fear and liberals, and the media (redundant, I know) would have us believe. Let’s take a little trip back in the time machine:
Newsweek Sept 30-Oct 2, 2004: Kerry 49 Bush 46
AP/Ipsos October 4-6, 2004: Kerry 50 Bush 46
Reuters/Zogby October 6-8, 2004: Kerry 46 Bush 45
Gallup Sept 30-Oct 2, 2000: Gore: 47 Bush 39
And there is more reason for optimism. As HotAir reports, the McCain campaign is saying it’s going to take the gloves off and start calling attention to Obama’s nefarious associations with criminals and radicals since the MSM won’t.
If they also start pointing the finger at Obama and Democrats for the financial crisis, and drawing attention to the big bucks and advisers Obama got from Fannie Mae, then things might actually turn around.

This is the first time McCain has enjoyed even a statistically insignificant advantage of any sort since Obama clinched the Democratic nomination on June 3…
A week ago today, Obama had a three-percentage point lead and the candidates were even among unaffiliated voters. Today, McCain leads 52% to 37% among unaffiliateds. [read more]

The McCain camp has launched a new ad mocking the Obamessiah, clearly inspired by this brilliant piece in the (London) Times Online.
I think it’s a great ad: I hope we see a lot more like it. And unlike some other conservatives, I think it will be highly effective. The Obama campaign is very long on style, and has arrogance in abundant supply, but is astoundingly short on substance. Mockery is the best way to point it out.
We shall see.
Whatever bump Obama might have had after his “See how Presidential I look” tour of Europe is gone. The race is now literally tied according to the latest Gallup polls. I don’t see how that can be good news for Obama. We’ll see which direction the polls go.

Time magazine joins Gallup and Rasmussen in showing a virtual dead heat between McCain and Obama. Gone, if it ever existed, is any “bump” Obama got from clinching the nomination.
This should be particularly disturbing to the Obama camp considering news analysis shows that Obama-only stories outnumber McCain-only stories by 4 to 1.
But not only is Obama losing ground to McCain, he has lost the Iraq issue, with voters trusting McCain more to deal with it best, and McCain leads Obama by 20 points when voters are asked who will best protect the country.
As Ed Morrissey at Hot air notes, the more people see of Obama, the less they seem to like him.

Obama-McCain Race Reverts to Virtual Tie
Voters are closely divided between Barack Obama and John McCain in Gallup Poll Daily tracking conducted June 12-14, with 44% of national registered voters favoring Obama for president and 42% backing McCain.
Obama had led by as many as seven percentage points in the first few days following Hillary Clinton’s departure from the race…Although the margin between Obama and McCain is now similar to what it was in the last few weeks of the Democratic primary race, the structure of the race looks slightly different than at any other time this year as a result of the relatively high percentage of voters — 15% — not favoring either major-party candidate.
This election will be decided by those “none of the above” voters, and that is good news for John McCain. There is no question the left is very happy with their candidate. Why shouldn’t they be? He is easily the most radical liberal to win the Democrat nomination since at least George McGovern.
So who, then, are these “none of the above” voters? Easy. Moderates of both parties, and conservative Republicans. And while McCain and Obama will split the former — Obama will get none of the latter, they will either vote for McCain, a third party, or no one.
And it looks as though McCain may finally be learning that the way to win is to move right and distinguish himself from Obama rather than trying to move towards the center and out-liberal him. In just one week McCain has done just that on two important issues, first condemning the deplorable Boumediene decision in no uncertain terms, and calling for an end to the moratorium on coastal drilling. Both issues that will go over very well with everyone but the far left.
I wouldn’t be surprised if McCain overtakes Obama in the next round of polling.

August 15, 2007 — A surprising 94 percent of Americans say they are satisfied with their lives …The Harris Poll of more than 1,000 people reported the overall “satisfaction” level, defined as people who said they were either very or somewhat satisfied with their lot, was up 4 percentage points, from 90 percent two years ago. [read more]
This poll and others like it have been overwhelmingly positive for years now. The vast majority of Americans not only say they’re satisfied with their lives, but doing well financially to boot.
Home ownership is at an all time high, especially among minorities, wages are up, inflation and unemployment are historically low…worst possible thing anyone could do is vote Democrat.
New Quinnepiac polls in the battleground states of Florida, Ohio and Pennsylvania show that the “endorsement of gay rights groups hurts a candidate much more than it helps.”
“Quinnipiac University polls…found voters by large margins more likely to see the endorsement of a gay rights group as a reason to vote against, rather than for, a candidate.
That is especially the case among independent voters —often the key to winning these critical states —and much more so among men than women and Republicans than Democrats.
No one has won the White House since 1960 without carrying two of those three states.”
And since there isn’t a chance in hell the reflexively Democratic HRC, GLAAD, Lambda, etc… are going to endorse anyone but the Democrat candidate, this will in turn help the Republicans. And with the current state of the Democrat party, anything that helps them lose, and Republicans win—even unwittingly so—is good for all Americans—gay or straight.
