I was amazed to see Obama with a 43% approval in Utah then I realized it is a typo. That should be 33%.

Utah might be the first state where the "strongly disapprove" has crossed into the majority - 51%.

58% in WY also strongly disapprove. Looking at Demographics, MS, LA, WY, UT, and maybe ID are the only states that are deep enough red for that to even theoretically happen.

The Utah Governor's race: I couldn't wait to see polling on this crucial race. I hope the pollster was well paid.

Give him time. I give even odds that Obama will say something stupid on Tuesday in his speech about Iraq and his poll numbers will take another hit. Even after 19 months in office he doesn't understand the difference between campaigning and leading. He'll make a campaign speech on Tuesday and the backlash will be vicious.
