New National Public Policy Polling Poll: Obama 47% (+2) approval 48% (-4) disapproval
Obama's approval rating stands at 47% with 48% of voters disapproving of him. That's a slight improvement from last month when his approval spread was 45/52. His numbers are pretty identical to a month ago with Democrats and Republicans, but he's seen a little improvement with independents from their disapproving of him by a 40/56 margin to their doing so 44/49.

Obama's job performance numbers may be in negative territory but 50% of Americans still say they'd rather have him to 43% who would prefer to have George W. Bush back. The numbers on that question pretty much mirror Obama's approval with partisan voters but independents would take Obama over his predecessor 53/36 even though they don't give him positive marks. The Obama/Bush divide has actually widened since PPP last investigated the question in April and found voters preferring him by only a 48/46 margin.

1. I think his #'s are going to actually go back up and this was
the low point in his Presidency right now. If he can get above 50%, the Dems look much better for the midterms.

2. Well at least it seems to be moving up when the economy is looking worse.
If he can disconnect his numbers from the unemployment number we may do fine.

5. I think a lot of people understand he is working hard and that he has
a lot of opposition from the GOP. Also, if he's in the mid to upper 40's now when unemployment is still very high, just think where he will be in 2012 when (likely) economically things will be looking better.

4. These are some other good PPP numbers
"When asked who they think is more responsible for the state of the economy, 49% picked Bush, to 40% choosing Obama. Independents say Bush, 52-38. Fewer Republicans, 75%, pick Obama than Democrats pick Bush, 81%.
'July couldve been a blip on the radar. Obamas more overt use of Bush in his stump speech of late could resonate with voters, particularly with independents who dont want to return to past economic policies,' said Dean Debnam, President of Public Policy Polling."
