Gallup: New High for Disaproval, New Low for Net Approval

Dum-Dum just asked if I was running out of polls. Well no, as it turns out. Thanks for the tip, Dummy.

Yesterday or so I goofed on Gallup for boosting Obama by stating that he was still in the double-digits regarding net approval (approve minus disapprove). I wondered if they'd make hay out of that same artificial boundary now that he's fallen into single-digit net approval, or if they would instead start saying "Obama retains a net approval exceeding the 'Lucky 7' cushion."

Well, he's actually at net-seven now, as it turns out. Approve 51%, disapprove 44%.

With adults, I remind everyone.

Rasmussen's poll of likely voters has him at negative one again, 49-50.

The Obama Effect: Blanche Lincoln, a Democratic Senator in red-state Arkansas, is now trailing a couple of relative-unknowns in polls.

Not by a lot, but the rule generally is that if you're an incumbent at less than 50%, you're vulnerable, and if you're at 40%, as Lincoln is, you're in grave peril.

For some cowbell, here's Jennifer Connelly riding a toy pony in the movie Career Opportunities. No one saw it and no one remembers it, but this image, from the commercial campaign, is seared, seared into my memory.
