Wow. Look at Obama's favorables/unfavorables. I remember the time where his net favorability was sky high. One more little scandal and he becomes just another Hillary.

Yeah, but McCain's are unusually bad as well. I don't think I've ever seen his favorable under 50 before. The only one that looks consistent is Clinton.
I think after Clinton drops out, participates in some token reconciliation, and Obama gives the speech of his life at the national convention his positives will shoot right back up.
I really didn't expect McCain's favorables to ever go below 50. I think most of his weaknesses (which there are tons) have little to do with how favorable people view him as a person.

Who are you trying to fool Kingsbridge? The highest Obama's fav/unfav ratings ever were, were 56/42 for one day on Rasmussen. He's been incredibly consistent only dipping down into the 40's during the Rev. Wright scandal.

Obama's favorables have dropped as voters have learned who he is.
It typically happens with any politico,

Obama's fav/unfav ratings are fantastic considering that he has been under attack by all Republicans and half democrats since Feb. McCain has been getting a free ride. Hillary has been helped by the republican machine. Wait until Obama is the nominee. We will see a 10 point jump in the polls versus McCain.
