This is what a high B+ looks like in graph form according to US Citizens. No wonder the guy won’t disclose his college grades. He thinks he’s sailing and we say he’s failing. Okay, he improved by 3 negative points in a month.

UPDATE (by Red Pill)
The results centered on Obama’s inauguration (surveys collected 1/19/09 – 1/21/09) were released 1/22/09.
Compare the historical results from then to now:
|Date||Strongly Approve||Somewhat Approve||Neutral||Somewhat Disapprove||Strongly Disapprove|
NOTE: Obama’s “Stongly Approve” has dropped from 44% to 23% … meaning 21% of the voting population “Strongly Approved” of Obama at his inauguration, but no longer does. AT BEST, those all joined the “Somewhat Approve”, and 18% of the 20% who used to “Somewhat Approve” now do not approve of him at all. AT WORST, 3% joined the “Somewhat Approve” while fully 18% of the voting population went from “Strongly Approving” of Obama to not even approving of him at all now.
Seen from the other extreme, those who “Strongly Disapprove” increased from 14% of the voting population to 42%. Even if all of those who were “neutral” before, plus those who “somewhat disapproved” before, combined and now were to “strongly disapprove” of Obama, that still would only account for 22 of the 28 point increase in “Strongly Disapprove”. So at least 6% of the voting population went from approving of Obama to now “Stongly Disapproving” of Obama.
So, combining those two observations, AT BEST, 18% of the voting population went from either “Strongly Approving” or “Somewhat Approving” of Obama to 1% neutural, 11% somewhat disapprove, and 6% “Strongly Disapproving” now. Got that? At least six percent of the voting population has gone from approving of Obama to the other extreme: “Strongly Disapprove”.
Ed Morrisey writes:
The flight of independents continues, in other words. They’re more disillusioned than the electorate as a whole, with a -28 on the index and more than a 2-1 showing for strongly disapproving to strongly approving. Among seniors, it’s -29, and even the under-30 crowd has him at a -2. According to Rasmussen, Obama has also lost the middle class, noting that his weakest income demographics come from earners between $40K – $100K per year.
This sample includes one polling day on a weekend (yesterday), which normally would have given Obama a boost. It will be interesting to see what happens by Thursday of next week, when they poll likely voters on three weekdays instead.
