For right now, it looks like 50-54% is Obama's floor. Excepting a major scandal or some other unforeseen catastrophe, I'd bet that he's not going to drop much farther than that in the next six months, assuming that he gets to sign a health care bill sometime before Christmas. And if that happens, watch those numbers creep back to 60% and above, as the economy slowly improves.
