1. Wow...debate bump or bad day dropping off?

O back into the lead on RV, Approval at 53 means better numbers tomorrow (probably).

14. Approval is all adults, including those not registered to vote.

I usually don't pay it any attention. Not sure why Gallup bothers with a poll that includes people who can't and certainly won't vote.

23. All three numbers tend to track with each other

If Obama is gaining in approval rating, then he's likely gaining in the other two.

13. Relying On This Poll Only

Imagine you are a fan of a basketball team that was up by ten points with five minutes left. There's now ninety seconds on the clock, the opposing team has the ball, and they are down by just two.

That's the story of the last week in this poll.

9. There Is Much To Like , Given The Pollster

What I like

!) The 53%-42% approve/disapprove. Those are a winner's numbers.
2) The lv/rv gap has narrowed to 4
3) O leads among rvs.
4) O has a lot of momentum in that poll. He has moved up three points in four or five days.

What I don't like

!) We are still behind.

11. Gallup LV screen is crap. What happened last week is that Romney had an epic

day or two in polling, which threw the entire tracker off. Now those days have dropped off, and we're back to Obama ahead in RVs, with LV screen producing Romney's entire lead.

17. "behind?" In a national poll by pollsters that game the LIkely Voter model?

I don't care. Do you? Or did we start electing President's based on the popular vote???

These totals INCLUDE places like Alabama and Mississippi, which have zero bearing on the race. Focusing on a poll like that is fairly useless, other than the approval numbers, which are interesting.

even in that figure, which is good IMHO.

3. Two days ago, I said Obama would make major progress in Gallup after the debate.

Now Obama's ahead in their RV measure with Romney's entire LV lead based on Gallup's gonzo LV screen.

6. While it is good to see Obama make gains in that poll

one has to wonder why he was ever behind 7 points to begin with?
If their LV model is so bad, it is essentially a tie. Which every other poll known to man is showing (except Ramussen of course).

two days. Now he's back in front in RVs.

12. And we care about a National poll, WHY exactly?

We don't elect on the popular vote. And Likely Voter is a bullshit model, based on Gallup (RW) interpretation of who they think will vote.

White, middle/upper class, woman, in her middle age, who leans conservative.

Very few of us are actually watching the Gallup polls.

31. Cherrypicking is a fool's game for partisans. Stick to the aggregators like 538 or Electoral-vote

Even RCP. Different companies from either different methodologies in screening etc or inherent bias will skew one way or the other. Samples vary and so do weightings for correction. Even a perfect poll has a margin of error and a confidence level.

Sure there are egregious pollers, but we should not throw out everything even they do. Much beter to look at the aggregate of polls on the state level. Electoral-vote.com does a very clear job that is easy to follow and fairly constructed. 538 at NY Times if you want more wonkery.

29. Great day of polling on Tuesday

There is no way to interpret it other than that he saw a great day in polling after the debate. To move a 7 day average 2 points means great things. To move a 3 day rolling average 5 points on approval rating vs disapproval is even bigger.

We've all been worried about Gallup because it's been a respected poll for so long, love seeing it come back to reality.

35. Nice to see Romney's Gallup lead cut in half this week

He's still ahead with Likely Voters, but Obama is ahead with Registered Voters.

And as others have commented, it's odd that a President has an Approval Rating of 53% (which usually means Re-election) and yet is not in the lead with Likely Voters.
