President Obama’s isn’t just coming into office with really highly popularity nationwide — he’s apparently coming into office with really high popularity in states he lost by landslides last November.
Here are his approval ratings in two deep-red states, from Rasmussen:
â¢ Texas: Approve 62%, Disapprove 35%. This includes 41% strong approval, and 19% strong disapproval.
â¢ Tennessee: Approve 60%, Disapprove 35%. This includes 39% strong approval, and 21% strong disapproval.
For reference, John McCain carried Texas by a 55%-44% margin, and won Tennessee by 57%-42%.
