Approval Rating After 100 Days In Office

Another survey (so simply presented) that we won't see in the mainstream media. Thanks.

Excellent. Much better viewed by descending approval rating rather than chronologically.

If you give the Democrats a re-count, Obama will come back on top due to "missed ballots" - just like in Washington, Minnesota, and New York elections.

Sorry to break this to you Tom, but your numbers are just plain wrong.

Gallup's version of this 4block:

Not that it means anything- Carter had a high approval rating as well, and we know what happened to that.

I'll let Judith Apter Klinghoffer respond:

It has just come to my attention that Media matters accuses me and those quoting me of touting falsehood for pointing out that Obama did not poll as well after his first 100 days as previous presidents have and that Gallup covered it up by mixing the results of the 100 day snap shot poll with its daily tracking polls.

Media matters attacks me by pointing out that the Gallup comparison of its first 100 day tracking polls of various presidents which show that Obama's numbers are higher than previous presidents.

But that is mixing apples and oranges. The methodology used in daily tracking polls is different from the snap shot of a single poll. Hence, as I pointed out the comparison is bogus.
