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]
