President Obama's poll numbers have dipped back into negative territory (actually, they've been there for most of the prior two weeks) in a big way with today's polling numbers. The RCP average puts him at -3.3. Only the Time Magazine poll (never a bell-weather) has him in positive territory at +4, and Rasmussen has fallen to -12 (likely voter poll). Congress continues it's slow fall into the abyss at almost -50, while the Republicans are up over the Dems at +3.3. The RCP average for direction of the country is -28.7. Finally, the major toss-up elections are started to lean Republican, including major seats (e.g.: Boxer and Reid). With less than 100 days to the mid-term election, the Democrats are fast-approaching a decision-point: stick with Obama or resist to save their own skins. It's going to be an interesting Fall.
