Public Policy Polling for Daily Kos & SEIU. 3/1-4. Registered voters. MoE ±3.1% (Obama trendlines 2/23-26, all others 2/16-19):

PRESIDENT OBAMA 47 (49) 49 (47) -4
PRESIDENT OBAMA 46 (48) 50 (48) -4
NANCY PELOSI 29 (31) 56 (55) -3

CONGRESSIONAL GOP 26 (22) 64 (68) 8
Since we began polling at the start of 2011, every other week, we've asked respondents what they think about the job performance of congressional Republicans and Democrats. The trendlines have been interesting.

First, the Democrats:

One important note: These trendlines don't include this week's data, which shows Democrats falling back to 33-59 after three weeks of improvements. And certaintly, these are pretty lousy numbers. But in January of 2011, Democrats began at 37-52, very similar to the GOP's 36-51 score. The erosion for Republicans, however, has been notably worse:
A recovery this week puts them at 26-64 (again, not shown on the chart), but just two weeks ago, they hit an all-time low of 22-68. It seems that there is indeed a price to pay for obstructionism, and Republicans have been paying it.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
