    All you will hear is the one from the NY times that had obama at 41% approval. actually TIPP is usually very GOP biased.

    •  And the Times/CBS usually leans Democratic (1+ / 0-)

      Of course their job approval number was among all adults while their horserace number was registered voters.  It's unusual for a Democrat to do worse with all adults.  But that may just be a comment on the Republican field.

      Obama's job approval is probably in the 46-49% range, shown by ABC/WaPo, Rasmussen, and Gallup; NBC/WSJ had the same figure a week or two ago.

      I think, for now, that CBS/NYT is at least a slight outlier on the low side, maybe caused by MOE or some such.  I just don't buy that gas prices had THAT much impact (a decline of 9 points in a month to lower, nominally, than any time in 2010 or 2011), and there hasn't been some major gaffe, scandal, or mistake that would depress them further.

        Today’s New York Times/CBS poll contains awful numbers for Obama. His approval rating is at an all-time low of 41 percent. On the economy, that number is even lower, at 39 percent. The right-track-wrong-track numbers are 29-63.

        And yet...

        In the head to head matchup with Mitt Romney, Obama has made, and held, inroads with key voter groups that abandoned Democrats in 2010. Chief among them: Women.

        The poll finds Obama beating Romney by 49-41 among registered independents. That is driven by independent women, who prefer Obama by double digits. Among women overall — who split between Republicans and Dems in 2010 — Obama is favored by half, versus 39 percent for Romney.
