Liberal Democrats and Obama Approval

Does Barack Obama have a liberal revolt on his hands? If you read progressive blogs, you would say yes, but if you talk to a representative sample of Americans who describe themselves as liberal and identify as Democrats, as the Gallup does on a daily basis, you come to a very different conclusion. See all the details in my weekly column.

Special thanks for Jeff Jones of Gallup and Jenn Agiesta and Jon Cohen of the Washington Post for providing additional data cited in the column. Also, note that the chart is the column is based on data that Gallup publishes in spreadsheet form so you can create your own charts galore (located on a standard web page showing data for the last few weeks). We all owe Gallup a big "thank you" for that.
