Fifty-three percent (53%) of men Strongly Disapprove along with 39% of women. Most African-American voters (58%) Strongly Approve while most white voters (53%) Strongly Disapprove.
Seventy-four percent (74%) of Republicans Strongly Disapprove as do 52% of unaffiliated voters.
Forty-seven percent (47%) of Democrats Strongly Approve.
For the second straight day, the update shows the highest level of Strong Disapproval yet recorded for this President. That negative rating had never topped 42% before yesterday. However, it has risen dramatically since the Senate found 60 votes to move forward with the proposed health care reform legislation. Most voters (55%) oppose the health care legislation and senior citizens are even more likely than younger voters to dislike the plan.

Does this officially mean racism is on the rise?
...even among Democrats?
The new CNN/Opinion Research Poll shows Palin now at 46% favorable. A previous version of this post said that, at 46%, Palin was “just one point below her fellow basketball fan."
(The same poll, btw, has bad news for Dick Cheney-haters; the outspoken former VP has climbed out of the 29% basement, back up to 39% now. How do you suppose he's done that without a new book? But that's another story.)

The high disapproval ratings among Democrats are over the current health care legislation. The progressives and the left wing of the party think it doesn't go far enough in terms of reform. They want a single-payer plan or at least a public option, both of which have been stripped from the bill in bi-partisan negotiations.
This doesn't, however, mean that these Democrats are going to vote Republican or move significantly to the right come election time.
So don't get your hopes up.
