Obama Now Underwater In Every Bush-State He Flipped to Blue in 2008

I got a little pissed at myself last week for posting poll-post after poll-post. I wrote to Laura my funk is caused by their being less genuine news lately -- health care is basically now like Iran, as they busily continue building the bomb and we seem unable to stop them. And sort of have to just trust they're not completely insane.

I don't post stuff about Iran anymore because nothing has changed in this basic dynamic since the war in Iraq went sour and it became clear the American public had little appetite for any further warfare.

Anyway, health care sort of became like that. I thought the reconciliation thing was pure fan-service for the nutroots. Now I think they're really going to try it, with a real effort to actually succeed. (As opposed to "trying" with the starting intention of failing and saying, "Hey, we tried.")

Polling is sort of like that too. But here's a somewhat interesting if somewhat predictable twist on the polls:

Barack Obama now has a negative approval rating in every state he flipped from the Bush column to his in 2008. In each of those places his level of support is now in the 44-46% range. Itís probably a good thing he doesnít have to run for reelection this year. He can only hope things start turning around for him once the midterms are in the rear view mirror, much as they did for Bill Clinton.
