90. I imagine Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo is...
I imagine Josh Marshall at Talking Points Memo is on of those 'centrist' progressives denying these findings. I imagine we all of will read into a thing whatever better validates our own personal biases.... :shrug:



BOGUS STAT ALERT

"Theres a meme bouncing around today which has it that President Obamas approval numbers have now fallen even lower than Jimmy Carters at the same point in his presidency. I even heard it picked up on MSNBC."

"This is a bogus factoid on a couple different levels."

"President Obamas approval rating is definitely in the danger zone in reelection terms. But its actually been rising over the last month or two. His net disapproval has gone from over ten to roughly 5 percentage points. (You can see a graph here.) This new factoid stems from the fact that Carters approval numbers actually spiked dramatically (about 20 points) in November of 1979 at the beginning of the Iranian hostage crisis. "
