Take that CNN/Gallup poll of likely voters with a grain of salt
Advertisements [?]
A few weeks ago, I read on Ruy Teixeira's blog http://www.emergingdemocraticmajority.com that the CNN polls of likely voters have been surveying about 5 percent more Repukes than Dems. That would explain why Bush does as well as he does and why there's a 7-point disparity between registered voters and likely voters. In November, the Dems will likely turn out in even greater numbers than the Repukes, so any poll that samples that many more Repubs than Dems is misleading.

Plus, any president with an approval rating of 46 percent doesn't win, period.
