Day 1203 – ABO | February 20, 2012

The funniest statistic I read about is when President Obama’s approval rating increases to 50%. This is the absolute minimum for an incumbent to gain reelection and it represents a whopping 25% decline in three years. Plus, this is the middle of Republican self-abuse season. What will presidential approval be line when the GOP has a united front?

I think there’s a good 50% of anybody but Obama out there. Some people aren’t going to like Romney or Santorum or Newt or whomever else, but they really can’t stand Obama. I might have to shut my eyes and just wait for the convention.

  1. I hear you and I feel the same way. We’ve already voted here in my state so I’m just waiting until August and I’ll support the eventual nominee. I wish I had a fast forward button though, LOL!

    An interesting little story to share. My eldest daughter was part of a focus group this past weekend. The focus group was trying out advertising campaigns for a non-profit. One image they had was HOPE and it was reminiscent of Obama’s 2008 campaign. This was a mixed group as far as ethnicity and age.

    As they were shown all the various images, different people would speak up. However, when the HOPE image appeared there was silence. Finally a young AA man broke the silence. He said it reminded him too much of Obama’s 2008 campaign and therefore it was an immediate turn off to him…….he wanted nothing to do with Obama ever again. His comment opened the flood gates and my daughter said everyone in the room agreed and had very negative things to say about Obama…….across ethnic lines and 3 generations age wise.

    Now that gave me HOPE, LOL!!

  2. Given the experience of Someboy’s daughter (or even without it), I m cOmpelled to as, Who the hell ran the poll that showed the bastard so popular, MSNBC?

    I hope Reptubs don’t do what they did in 2008–whine about the Repub. nominee by voting for obama or noy voting at all–which latter is, in effect, a vote for the incumbent.

  4. It’s a head scratcher to find the reasoning behind Obama’s higher approvals. All he’s done is go to fundraisers this past week, and his bride’s joined the 1%ers in Aspen for fun and frolic over the holiday weekend.

    They’re just not that into us.

  5. Actually I just read something about these poll numbers. It seems that in large blue states he’s polling better than ever. So he may well win by even larger margins in California, New York…..etc.

    Winning by larger margins in those states will not net him any additional electoral votes.

    The article I read seemed to indicate that the wider margin in blue states was pumping his nationwide poll numbers higher, but that it’s deceiving as far as the implication for the election. Looking at polls in known swing states shows a different story.
