The Pantload's Cup Runneth Over..

The Daily RAZ has a new all-timer for your reading pleasure:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Wednesday shows that 24% of the nation's voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-six percent (46%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -22 (see trends).
This matches the lowest Approval Index rating yet measured for this president. Platinum Members can see key demographic information and other members-only information.

Much as I would like to think that this is a harbinger of a great public toilet flush, alas, Scott attributes the sudden downward drift to statistical noise. But we will always have and the fact that there is an emerging perception that The Gang That Can't Shoot Straight..well..can't shoot straight.

Over the past week, the Approval Index ratings have been more volatile than usual and it is unlikely that perceptions of the president have shifted that much. Rather, with results reported on a three-day rolling average basis, the volatility appears to be the result of one day with results outside of the normal range working its way through the system. Over the past couple of months, the president’s full-month Approval Index rating has been -16 or -17.

Still in all, you ever do one of those school or work projects where you are running some statistics and stuff like that so much that you begin to get a feel for what's happening? I follow the RAZ DT daily and, while i am in no league with Scott and crew, I just get this sense of where the numbers are going and it's pretty reflective of a public waking up to the fact that he's a charlatan in just phoning it in.

..gee, do ya' think?
