Remember when approval numbers were important?

That was BO. Before Obama. Now, polling numbers can't seem to find their way onto the front page. Unless, of course, we're talking about Sarah Palin's numbers.

But, since I've learned from the liberals during the last few years, approval numbers are very, very important. They went on about them seemingly every day. So, let's turn our eyes to Obama's approval numbers.

He came into office with a 65% approval rating. That number, today, has fallen to 49%. With an overall index (strong approve v. strongly disapprove) of -8.

What. Does. This. Mean?

It must means something, right?

Perhaps it just means that 51% of Americans are too stupid to realize Obama's wonderfulness.

Or, perhaps evertyime someone new loses their job, they realize that can no longer blame BOOOOSH!

Of course, Rasmussen is eager to attempt to explain away the low numbers.

It is important to remember that the Rasmussen Reports job approval ratings are based upon a sample of likely voters. Some other firms base their approval ratings on samples of all adults. President Obama’s numbers are always several points higher in a poll of adults rather than likely voters. That’s because some of the President’s most enthusiastic supporters, such as young adults, are less likely to turn out to vote.
