  •  If you support the President (0+ / 0-)

    taking comfort in 70% liberal support means you are not aware of the standard amount of base support required for a national candidate.  

    If these polls hold, regardless of the headline, they represent a very serious warning for the President's re-election chances.

    •  Well, I'm speaking relatively. (0+ / 0-)

      If I were just judging by the diaries and comments on this site and in the liberal media in general, I would guess his support among liberals was at around 50% at best.

      Honestly, I'm not terribly conerned about his poll numbers right now. I'm much more concerned about where the economy goes, both in terms of my own personal situation, more noble concerns about the well-being of my fellow man, and crass political concerns.

      As far as polls go, I'll be most concerned after the Republicans have a nominee.

      •  this site is not representative of the base (1+ / 0-)

        it is representative of the activist base....and is good barometer of enthusiasm...but because of the general political knowledge of members, there is a reasonable rationale for paying attention to the constructive criticism...

        and yes...some is unconstructive...
