49. I bet Obama could still draw a huge crowd.
Edited on Sun Aug-29-10 03:20 AM by Drunken Irishman
His support, at worst, is maybe ten-points off what it was from the 2008 election. Remember, he had roughly 47% of the country vote against him. His disapproval, by average, is around 49-50%. So there isn't much difference between those who disapprove of him now than those who didn't even vote for him in 2008.

On the support side, I'll concede it's not nearly as solid. His approval rating is roughly 45% and that's not fantastic numbers by any means.

Yet it's better than any Republican nationally. Certainly better than Sarah Palin and Glenn Beck.

If Obama were to hold a rally, I have no doubt in my mind he could get 87,000 people easily.

He's still popular. Especially among Democrats - who probably made up 80-90% of those people pictured above.
