I think it's the second, except for Clinton.
It has just underlined basic conservative intolerance, for me.
The left is more willing to support presidents from the right, than the right is willing to support presidents from the left.
The right is not very tolerant.

Obama job approval 55% today on Gallup.
Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval
Rasmussen looks like even more of an outlier today.
Gallup - 55%
CNN - 53%
CBS - 56%
Ipsos/McClatchy - 56%
Pew - 52%
.... Rasmussen - not even in the ballpark
Wow, now maybe it's because I have been busy at 6pm for the past week (that's when The News Hour With Jim Lerher is on), but I have no idea what is causing the sudden rise in Obama's polls. Are people actually starting to look at the facts instead of anti-Obama scare tactics?
Also, I would like to know how Rasmussen determines whether someone is likely to vote or not. Do they include people under 18 who are politically active and can vote in 2010/1012?
I live in the Universe of truth, where we look at polls that don't select their own polling groups to make Obama look worse.
I was looking at Gallup, which had him at 5 more points then about a week ago.
Their 52 week high was 69%, now it is 55% and you call that an increase? Oh, btw, look at the new demographic numbers, from your own site:I was looking at Gallup, which had him at 5 more points then about a week ago.
Obama Weekly Job Approval by Demographic Groups
I'd suggest you actually read the data, you would see he is losing every single demographic.
Neither side in an argument can find the truth when both make an absolute claim on it.
