Not surprising. Definitely the Gallup poll from last week is now proven to be an outlier.
The question on everyone’s mind today is when the President abandons his plans so that he can save his party. Or, does he just continue on, assume he loses the US House to the Republicans, and then see how he can position himself for 2012?
Keep an eye on independents in these polls from Quinnipiac, Rasmussen and other outlets. If they continue to break solidly against the President, his prospects for 2012 are going to start looking bleak.
