SurveyUSA released a 600 sample poll of “adults” on November 23rd taken in Missouri from November 20th through the 22nd. The margin of error is 4%. The poll was sponsored by KCTV in Kansas City.

President Obama’s overall approval numbers have continued to decline when compared to the September (there was no October release from SurveyUSA) and August surveys.

Do you approve or disapprove of the job Barack Obama is doing as President?


38% – approve

58% – disapprove

4% – not sure

Democrats [30% of sample]

74% – approve

24% – disapprove

2% – not sure

republicans [31% of sample]

12% – approve

82% – disapprove

6% – not sure

Independents [32% of sample]

33% – approve

65% – disapprove

2% – not sure

The numbers among Democrats, republicans and “Independents” have remained relatively unchanged, though the percentage of self-identified Democrats in this sample (30%) is significantly lower than the percentage (37%) in the September poll. The percentage of republicans and “Independents” sampled in the November poll are correspondingly higher.

Get 24% of Democrats and/or 18% of self-identified Liberals to weigh in additionally in the approval column and the president’s overall approval numbers would look quite a bit better.

You got to dance with them what brung you. Go figure.
