The reliable republican leaning pollster Rasmussen has Obama up. Which must mean Obama is WAY up in reality.

53% Approve
45% Disapprove

Today’s figures include 34% who Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 36% who Strongly Disapprove. This gives him Presidential Approval Index rating of -2.

That’s the president’s best Approval Index rating since July 2009. It is the lowest level of Strong Disapproval since June 2011.

Dick Morris. A Brief History

by Charmed88

The latest Dick Morris 'insight' into the election.

Whether deliberately or not, the New York Times/CBS/Quinnipiac Poll is wrong! It shows Obama carrying Ohio, Florida, and Virginia.
Wow! I'm starting to worry now. Oh wait.... lets have a look at his past comments over the years. The most well know are listed here by the Guardian, but here are a few more obsure ones.

Bush will rebound from Katrina missteps

But make no mistake about it: Every day for the next year, voters will see nonstop scenes of federal relief, rebuilding, renovation and reconstruction along with the empathy, sympathy and compassion these efforts imply in the heart of George W. Bush. He may have had a terrible first week, but he will rebound big time in the months to come.
New York voters won't fall for Hillary's dodge
Hillary has a real fight on her hands. Pirro will make a very effective challenger. She will almost certainly make the race closer than the 12 points that separated Hillary from her 2000 Republican challenger. She might just beat Hillary
Fourth-place finish in Memphis shows McCain's no front-runner
He lacks the requisite enthusiasm he would need among core Republicans to cop that title. Sen. John McCain (R-Ariz.) is destined to find that his love of the Republican Party will be unrequited.
Dems head toward Clinton v. Gore
In the past six months, much has happened in the contest for the 2008 Democratic presidential nomination, but its central dynamic has gone largely unnoticed: Hillary has been dropping and Gore has been moving up. According to the latest Fox News poll, Hillary lost almost half of her lead over Gore between March and August.
GOP: Back from the Senate brink
While the Republican Party leadership in the House seems doomed to move into a well deserved minority, the GOP shows increasing signs of being able to hang on to the Senate, although perhaps by the thinnest of margins.
An extensive list of articles written by Morris is available at The Hill. Even the briefest of views of this list confirms Dick Morris' title as "Professional Bullshiter".
