Pretty stable, nothing to see here. Dems love him, Republicans don't, and Indies are still on his side.

Well he has lost soe support among indy's...he is down to 50....probably why his approvals have left the 60's and entered the 50's. Of course 60+ is hard to maintain over time. He can't afford to lose to many more Indy's though. I expect GOP support to decline gradually which will bring his overall #'s down....so he needs to keep the Indy's support above 50 or he will be in a little trouble. You never want to drop below 50 with Indy support, that is a bad trend no president wants.

Actually this is an improvement from the last few DemCorps polls. You can only really follow trends from the same poll.

Actually, scrap that, the numbers are pretty much the same as all their Obama job approval polls, with indies and among all voters.

Just look at the indy and GOP charts...both have a gradual trend against Obama....GOP support he can afford to lose all of it, there just aren't enough GOP to sway an election by themselves, but he is losing indy's gradually as well which he does need and cannot afford to lose many of those....the chart just shows the gap narrowing.

Very, very slightly in terms of favorable. Though, granted, unfavorable shows a steady climb. Not really a surprise considering the state of the economy. Still, DemCorps had the split at 49-40 in March so little change there. And Quinnipiac shows an improvement from last month, then 53-33, now 57-30. Your larger point I agree with - indies are always the key.

To me, the more significant data is the right track vs wrong track. That chart is moving more in the direction of wrong track. Are the Dems moving too far left?

What the hell are you talking about Bigmike? Also, don't worry about little dips in polls.
