What was Obamas approval in Rasmussen tho? Seems to me like fuzzy math to use a Gallup poll for one state, and a Rasmussen poll (Rasmussen is a pretty conservative polling agency in its results).


Are you surprised that Deeds did so well with Democrats and blacks? McDonnell even ran behind Bush among black voters in Virginia.Deeds outperformed Obama among Democrats if Im not mistaken. He did so because he outperformed Obama among white Democrats.


@ anonymous said:Deeds outperformed Obama among Democrats if Im not mistaken. He did so because he outperformed Obama among white Democrats.If you define outperformed as a greater percentage of cast votes, then perhaps. But the under 30 vote in 2009 was half of what it was in 2008. Clearly, Obamas supporters were not motivated to turn out for Deeds. I would not consider that outperforming.


I think it is a rising tide of frustration against politicians in general, by republicans and a majority of independents == enough to make a difference if it continues. It is not directed squarely at Obama but at his policies and his congress that effects those policies. It heads all the way down to a cultural divide, and that is dangerous for any president if it continues on this slippery slope. 2010 will certainly be a downward slide, although I think democrats will keep the majority in both houses; 2012 will be swung at Obamas head, unless the economy turns quickly, Obama veers center with a noticeable effect and Mike Huckabee (Obamas only formidible candidate) doesnt win the nomination.

PPP is best known for putting out highly accurate polling on key political races across the country, but we also do affordable private research for candidates and organizations.  Why pay tens of thousands of dollars for a survey when one of the most reliable companies in the nation can do it for less?"
