The One has recorded the sharpest slump in popularity rating of any US president at this stage in office for 50 years. Nor is that figure just a snapshot of a bad week: it reflects his average daily approval rating for the past quarter of the year – running at 53 per cent.

I think the old record holder was Reagan. Truman dropped a lot to but he was not elected. The point is that some of the biggest droppers ended up getting re-elected. So this means very little. Everybody knows 78% is hardly sustainable. George Bush Sr was over 90% during the first Gulf war. He lost. All you can say is that polls this far out mean nothing. They might influence young congressmen who don’t know that. That is about it.
