    Obviously not if this poll says differently.

    You have consistent polling data showing this?

    What issues, and by what margin?

    Re: What They Told Us: Reviewing Last Week’s Key Polls

    obama's negatives are consistently over 40%

    that's always been suicide

    it's why his own party is ditching him

    rockefeller and wyden each introduced amendments to baucus last week trying to revive the public option

    baucus abruptly cancelled committee the next day, citing yom kippur

    the gatekeeper didn't know by thursday that atonement starts today?

    health care is dead

    today, on the sunday talks, NOT A WORD about the impossible issue

    today was FOREIGN POLICY SUNDAY, and it was a disaster

    not one voice today could call obama's foreign policy a success

    afghanistan---he's been sitting on a secret assessment for a month, misleading the public by saying he's waiting for his top-to-bottom review (which bob woodward outed on monday), saying he's not yet been asked for more troops (the worst kept secret in washington), he's publicly pressuring his generals to hold off on their reports cuz he doesn't want to be boxed in, his call for a new strategy contradicts his proclamation on march 27 which he called his "comprehensive new strategy," the pentagon's press secty admits either gates or obama requested mcchrystal and petraeus "scrub" their assessments clean...

    no one believes him---stephanopoulos, woodward, friedman, carville...

    iran---he tried to pass off his no-nukes poetry on thursday in the security council while he's known all along since inauguration day about qom, he's counting on the russians and chinese bailing him out, his policy of personal diplomacy with ahmedinejad is a joke, on march 21 he blew the iranians a kiss for nowruz even while he was at the time in full knowledge of the existence of qom...

    gitmo---nuff said

    domestic terror plots---obama sounds like bush on the need to empower our intel gathering capabilities, his reversals on the patriot act, he sounds like bush in his readiness to swallow (suddenly) what the cia has to say...

    no one believes him

    gregory, matthews, odonnell, williams...

    FOREIGN POLICY SUNDAY was a disaster for the president

    his negatives appear permanently above 40%

    no national politician has ever survived such

    It doesn't matter how high is negative is if his approval rating is 51%.

    I would say that Obama's policies include the expansion of government. Though a majority say that is/would be a bad thing.

    Americans More Likely to Say Government Doing Too Much

    Obama's pet money-for-free-plan, seen as a failure.

    36% Say Stimulus Plan Has Helped Economy - Rasmussen Reports

    Missle shield.

    31% Agree With Decision To Halt Anti-Missile Shield, 38% Disagree - Rasmussen Reports

    Health-care.

    Health Care Reform - Rasmussen Reports

    (Highest number, to be fair - I think WSJ/NBC found a 51% disapproval rate?)

    I accept your apology.

    My mistake... Hadn't seen the last poll. Republicans are trusted on 7 of 10, with health care being tied.

    Republicans are trusted more on Taxes, The Economy, Nat'l Security, Iraq, Abortion, Gov't Ethics and Immigration. Democrats are trusted more on Education and Social Security.

    See for yourself:

    You need to look at your source more carefully... 36% say the stimulus was a success while 32% thinks it hasn't, that's good for Obama if more people think it's a success than those who think it failed! duh.

    If 45% of people thinks theres too much government regulation in business what about the other 55%?

    Missiles shields aren't an important issue right now and I doubt many Americans have any knowledge about it.

    How can people have an opinion on Health Care Reform if there is no final bill!

    because they know what's in 3200 and baucus

    1. mandates for individuals to buy for themselves insurance they can't afford up to 13% of their incomes

    2. fines and punishments for those caught uncovered

    3. massive cuts to medicare and medicaid

    4. bogus claims to pay for all these jovian ambitions by cutting out waste, fraud and abuse---why wait?

    5. the "mother of unfunded mandates" being pushed onto the states

    6. the bending of the cost curve the wrong way

    7. unreliable enforcement against the inclusion of illegals

    8. ambiguous language concerning the funding of abortion which baucus is working his butt off to clean up

    9. scary savings in end of life costs

    10. taxing benefit packages, particularly pissing off unions

    11. taxing small biz

    12. surcharging upper earners

    13. deadly adjustments to medicare advantage

    why did baucus abruptly call off his debate last week?

    why is cbo so uncooperative?

    why are the governors up in arms?

    why are feinstein and reid?

    why did wyden throw such a hissy?

    why did rockefeller say no way?

    why won't the bluedogs play?

    why won't the freshmen?

    why didn't the sunday talks today devote a single minute to the topic?

    because the prez is so popular?

    LOLOL!
