On to more serious matters, Gallup has just released a state by state job approval poll for Barack Obama spanning the first half of 2012. In 37 states his job approval is below 50%. Here is how it breaks down:

Hawaii, 63%
Rhode Island, 58%
Vermont, 56%
New York, 55%
Massachusetts, 55%
Maryland, 55%
New Jersey, 53%

“Presidents with approval ratings below 50% have more uncertain re-election prospects. Historically, two presidents below 50% in their final approval rating before the election — George W. Bush and Harry Truman — won, and three, Gerald Ford, Jimmy Carter, and George H.W. Bush, lost.”
