There’s quite a hemorrage going on in the GOP.  Democratic Strategist has the details, citing Pew numbers:

Pew has some new Presidential job approval figures that give an additional insight into the way Barack Obama is peeling off support from the Republican coalition.

The basic partisan breakdown looks like this:

Presidential Job Approval
Democrats – 88%
Independents – 63%
Republicans – 34%

But what is particularly noteworthy is the split within the Republicans:

Conservative Republicans : 28% approve, 47% disapprove
Moderate and Liberal Republicans: 46% approve, 30% disapprove

This is what happens when an ideological, incompetent quack like Bush is followed by a pragmatic and disciplined Democratic president.

I don’t think uniting against the stimulus is going to help the GOP.
