Over the past 10 days there have been eight new presidential approval polls. (Sorry I've been tied up with Pollster.com and haven't updated as often as usual. I hope to make up for that a little.) The net effect of this new polling is to indicate that the approval drop we saw recently has stabilized but at a low approval trend of 37.5%. That is about where the President stood at the beginning of the summer-- better than the all time lows of May but well below the recent maximum near 41%.

The polls fall above and below that trend, as you can see below. No outliers, though CBS/NYT is relatively low. Bottom line-- low approval for a President at midterm. If a picture is worth 1000 words, let's assume I've got 8,000 words below and let me move on to more posts!
