In some recent reports and on some blogs, it is reported that more and more are leaning towards Republicans and that the President is "out of touch" with 80% of Americans. That is disastrous for any President to be that far away from the people.
Click on this link from Gallup. On the right hand side of the page, it has interactive links, comparisons to where Obama stands with other Presidents in history, their 2nd year numbers, daily approvals, etc. I like it.
If you click on this link from Google, you can track the 2010 election ratings. They are working with some of the top names in politics — Sabato, Cook, Rothenberg, CQ-Roll Call, and RealClearPolitics — to make it easier to track the daily changes in the political landscape.
Via UK Telegraph:
Matt Drudge has a brilliant picture of an ocean liner about to capsize with the caption “Gallup Sees Tidal Wave,” in a scene reminiscent of the classic 1972 disaster movie The Poseidon Adventure (the still may be from the film itself). I’ve frequently compared the Obama presidency to the Titanic, but perhaps an analogy with the fictional doomed SS Poseidon might be more apt, considering the scale of the Tsunami about to hit Washington on November 2nd and flip Congress upside down.
Gallup has another devastating poll which makes extremely grim reading for the White House today. Gallup’s polling shows that 48 percent of Americans now regard themselves as conservative, higher than each of the last three midterms, compared to just 20 percent who describe themselves as liberals. In addition, Gallup reveals that 55 percent of likely voters next week are Republican or lean Republican, in contrast to 40 percent who are Democrat or lean Democrat. Here are Gallup’s latest findings:
Gallup’s latest figures on the composition of the 2010 electorate suggest that, consistent with an earlier Gallup report, those voting in this year’s congressional elections across the country will be similar in gender, age, and education to 2006 voters. At the same time, they will be substantially more Republican in their party orientation, and more conservative than has been the case in the past several midterms.
Specifically, 55% of likely voters in Gallup’s Oct. 14-24, 2010, polling are Republicans and independents who lean Republican. This is higher than the Republican showing in the past four midterm elections, although not too dissimilar to the 51% found in 2002. The corollary of this is that the 40% of likely voters now identifying as Democratic is the lowest such percentage of the past several midterms.
With respect to political ideology, the 48% of likely voters now describing their political views as conservative is slightly greater than the 42% to 45% seen in each of the prior three midterms. However, the percentage of likely voters identifying as liberal has also generally increased over this period. Both changes are consistent with broader patterns Gallup has identified in the past year.
The poll underscores not only the huge advantage the Republicans have going into next week’s election, but also the sheer scale of the conservative revolution in America. As Gallup shows, conservatives now outnumber liberals by an almost 2.5 to 1 ratio. Liberals make up just 20 percent of the American population. Barack Obama is the most left-wing president in US history, and is clearly out of touch with at least 80 percent of the American people, who clearly do not share his ideology. Next Tuesday looks set to be an epic disaster for the Left in America, and the capsizing of the president’s Big Government dream.
