Regression to the Mean

It’s one of the world’s most powerful forces, and it may have caught up with Barack Obama, just two months into his term: tomorrow’s Zogby poll will show the President’s approval/disapproval rating at “about 50-50.”

This will be no surprise to Power Line readers, who have followed Obama’s steady decline to near the break-even point, as recorded by Rasmussen Reports. It’s striking, though, that so far Obama’s return to campaign mode (e.g. his appearance on the Tonight Show) has not arrested the decline that has been precipitated by public alarm over his radical policies.
