Via Weekly Standard:
The latest polling from Rasmussen Reports shows that President Obama’s net approval rating is lower today than it was two years ago. Today, Obama’s net approval rating among likely voters is minus-3 percentage points (48 percent approval to 51 percent disapproval), while his net approval rating among those who feel “strongly” (either way) is minus-14 points (29 percent approval to 43 percent disapproval). On October 19, 2010, Obama’s net approval rating was minus-1 point (49 percent approval to 50 percent disapproval), while his net approval rating among those who felt “strongly” was minus-10 points (30 approval to 40 percent disapproval).IF OBAMA IS LESS POPULAR NOW THAN HE WAS IN 2010, THEN HIS TURNOUT WON'T BE ANY HIGHER - AND THE GOP'S TURNOUT WON'T BE ANY WORSE - THAN 2010.
IF OBAMA IS LESS POPULAR NOW THAN HE WAS IN 2008 - WITH BLACKS AND JEWS AND CATHOLICS AND THE YOUTH, THEN HIS TURNOUT WILL BE LOWER THAN 2008, AND THE GOP'S TURNOUT WILL BE HIGHER THAN 2008.
THIS HAS ALL THE MAKINGS FOR AN HISTORIC LANDSLIDE.
I THINK OBAMA MIGHT ONLY WIN A DOZEN OR SO STATES: CALIFORNIA, WASHINGTON, OREGON, MINNESOTA, ILLINOIS, CONNECTICUT, VERMONT, MASSACHUSETTS, MARYLAND, NEW YORK, NEW JERSEY, AND DC.
THE POPULAR VOTE WILL BE CLOSER - BECAUSE THE CROOKED DEMOCRAT MACHINES WILL RUN UP THE VOTE IN PLACES LIKE NYC AND LA AND CHICAGO AND PHILADELPHIA.
