President Obama Job Approval
As the Los Angeles Times sarcastically noted, this dip could be due to many things, but is most likely connected to the president's obsession with passing a HC bill, any bill, by any means. Interestingly, the RCP Average will probably drop further tomorrow, after today's Gallup Poll results are included. The Gallup Poll reflected in today's RCP Average has an approval tie, but today's Gallup has the president down by -2.
|RCP Average||3/3 - 3/18||--||47.5||47.7||-0.2|
|Gallup||3/16 - 3/18||1547 A||47||47||Tie|
|Rasmussen Reports||3/16 - 3/18||1500 LV||45||55||-10|
|FOX News||3/16 - 3/17||900 RV||46||48||-2|
|NBC News/Wall St. Jrnl||3/11 - 3/14||1000 A||48||47||+1|
|Pew Research||3/10 - 3/14||1500 A||46||43||+3|
|Associated Press/GfK||3/3 - 3/8||1002 A||53||46||+7|
Today's RCP Average also has the general Republican brand up to +1.6 over the Democrats. It looks more and more likely that November will bring a bloodbath.
