Obama Is Doing Just Fine With The Electorate

Ezra Klein spins Obama’s poll ratings this way this morning:

But so far as the polls go, Obama is doing okay among the left. In fact, as the graph below shows (click on it for a larger version), his approval trends among Democrats, independents and the country mirror Ronald Reagan’s ratings among Republicans, independents and the country almost exactly.

So, his base likes him and some numbers correlate with those of a Republican President some 25 to 30 years ago. Why worry? I guess that this means Pelosi and Reed are safe in their jobs.
