Gallup Daily: Obama Approval drops below 50% for first time

Boy, Gallup did all they could to make this line look flat, but the drop is from 70 to 49, that is DOWN, the direction of the line should be DOWN as well, lol!


The latest Gallup Daily tracking results show 49% of Americans approving of the job Barack Obama is doing as president, putting him below the majority approval level for the first time in his presidency

…Results are based on telephone interviews with 1,533 national adults, aged 18 and older, conducted Nov. 17-19, 2009, as part of Gallup Daily tracking. For results based on the total sample of national adults, one can say with 95% confidence that the maximum margin of sampling error is ±4 percentage points.

Schoolyard Brawl between Dems: Obey and Waters in yelling match on floor – Waters D-CA shoved Obey D-WI? Pulled apart by fellow members….

Glenn Thrush has it:

House Appropriations Committee Chairman David Obey (D-Wisc.) and Rep. Maxine Waters (D-Calif.) engaged in a late afternoon shouting match on the House floor after Obey reportedly rebuffed Waters on a $1 million earmark request, aides and witnesses said.

Witnesses, speaking on condition of anonymity, said it appeared that Waters pushed or shoved Obey.

The pair were seen shouting at each other and had to be separated by members — who were gathered on the floor casting final votes before heading off to a party at the White House.

Waters, according a Democratic staffer familiar with the situation, approached Obey to ask him to fund one of her longstanding earmarks, the Maxine Waters Employment Preparation Center.

Obey — who irked Waters a few weeks back by banning “Monuments to me” funding projects named after the politicians that earmark them — told her no, emphatically enough to be heard across the chamber.

I’m not going to approve that earmark!” Obey shouted.

The two veteran Democrats — each pugnacious and 71 years old — began shouting, with the L.A. area-Congresswoman following Obey around the chamber, reportedly suggesting he channel the vocational money through a local school district.

At some point, they collided, witnesses say, with one Obey ally claiming the lean Waters “tried to shove” the stout Obey.
