PPP really really asked a job approval question about Culver, and then polled Vilsack's favorability? It'd make much more sense if they asked both questions about Culver. Did they maybe step into the way-back machine mid-poll?

Melvin,

what party controlled congress when those millions of jobs were created under Clinton and what party was in control of congress when those same millions were lost?

The 500,000 potential gain tomorrow is going to biased upwards because of huge census and temp worker gains. The ADP report released today is much more reliable, IMO, and shows decent (average) gains in private employment.

Yeah, they say about 300,000 of the 500,000 jobs created will be from the Census. The economy appears to be headed in the right direction, but it was headed that way in November 1994 and the Democrats still got slaughtered.

I think any analogy with 1994 is a bit absurd, for one back in the days under Clinton the Republican party had a nationally viable and credible political movement that appealed to both indies and moderate dems. Today, the voters are stuck with choicing between the devil they know (dems) and the devil that turned into a nightly entertainment (Repubs).

The dems so far are safe in November, but everything can change within a short period. I say it really depends on Obama admin and Congressional dems leadership how good or bad they do. Reducing unemployment, tackling Oil Spill and financial reform correctly will give the public a sense of confidence over their leadership. You can scream as many times how Republicans are the party of NO, but no one cares if you don't get your agenda done.
