The bump from the sotu address didn't last very long.

This poll is rather strange because it gives Democrats an edge in the generic election yet Obama's approval is terrible. This has been a trend with this poll. The other polls like CNN and even opinion dynamics have Obama with positive approval yet the GOP has the edge in the polls.

Xenobion:

Well the only difference in this poll is the lowered support from Democrats. Probably some fallout of popularity due to the state of Health Care atm. Otherwise everything else is unchanged.
