    Obama polling lower than Bush was in same period in his Presidency.


    Interesting read at the very least regardless of if you agree or not.

    RASMUSSEN is a reliable source as far as I am concerned. If anything, it should show that poll numbers do not mean all that much.

    As also pointed out, Bush's poll numbers from the same time period after his election had him as an average of:

    Approve: 57%
    Disapprove: 24%
    Unsure: 19%

    This is pretty much parity with the numbers you so heavily tout for Obama. Polls this early do not mean much in my view, and never have.

    Polls at this point don't mean squat.

    If the economy turns around, the polls will soar. If it doesn't, it will sour. If there is another terrorist attack, the polls will go through the floor. If not, then all attention will still be focused on the economy.
