    He gives a speech, his numbers go up.

    Amazing. Forget his earlier speeches are just that...speeches. The American public so TV affected, wanting to believe what they hear.

    The false prophet was so tired last night....McDonnell did an excellent job in rebuttal now...there is a potential 2012 candidate from my great state of Virginia.
    It was the Austrasians, that hewed on bravely through the thick of the fight, it was they who found and cut down the Saracen King.

    Only in your mind

    Unless the economy has an even worse crash than '08, or we get attacked on our home soil, the man is going to easily win a second term. You have to remember, people vote based on their savings account and wallet. If you have as much or more money in them than before (during the previous term), its almost guaranteed.

    It is not very unreasonable that the rich should contribute to the public expense, not only in proportion to their revenue, but something more than in that proportion.

    Yep. That's pretty much how Reagan won. He asked if you were better off than you were before. We have 3 years to go, as the saying goes, that's forever in political time.

    PBO has:

    Pushed an agenda that is obviously being rejected.

    Pushing the lie that is global warming.

    Killed jobs.

    Further wrecked the economy.

    People are worse off now than they were a year ago.

    and you think he has a snowball's chance in hell of getting re-elected?...

    Overall, 46% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the President's performance. Fifty-four percent (54%) disapprove. These updates are based upon nightly telephone interviews and reported on a three-day rolling average basis. The overwhelming majority of interviews for todayís update were completed before the Presidentís speech last night.

    Climate, changes. It takes a particularly uneducated population to buy into the idea that it's their fault climate is changing and further political solutions can fix it.

    Given your lack of knowledge on the subject, ill take this opinion with a grain of salt.

    Consumer sentiment is at a 16 month high.

    The banking system has been stabilized.

    There have been no tax increases.

    I can line simple sentences too! The fact of the matter is, your opinion is grounded in ideology (and nothing more).

    I don't see how this is relevant, but it looks like their approval numbers are running with the pack. I do find it strange that they have no margin for people who have no opinion though. That's unusual.

    Their disapproval is higher than average, but given Rasmussen's reputation, I don't find that incredible.

    What's the unemployment rate doing now? What about that 17% dump in house sales? Yeah, your boy's doing a fiiiine job at fixing the economy. Now, he wants a jobs bill? How many billions will that cost, with no return?

    What's the reaction to Obamacare?

    And all you have are insults and an undocumented stat that doesn't mean **** anyway?

    Well the last one worked perfectly. $800B of political patronage was a dream come true for Obama. Forget about the unemployment rate, it doesn't mean anything, even though 7 million jobs were lost, we actually created 2 million. Why wouldn't we do that again?

    I am curious about the results of the rest of the polls but it looks like they haven't been published yet.
    Polls taken after SOTU speeches don't count. Even Bush had great approval ratings after his SOTU speeches.

    NOTE: Why do presidents' approval ratings go up after SOTU speeches? Because the nation really does want to come together, and this is the best time to show that. In actual practice, though, it never really happens, so Obama's ratings will come back down to earth very soon, just as Bush's did.
