A House Divided

Yellow Alert: Polarity Index over 3

The ratio of poll respondents who reply with extremely good or extremely bad versus somewhat good or bad in their opinion of the President is the Polarity Index.

Readings historically are almost always in the 0.5 -1.0 range.

The Zogby poll this week has jumped from 1.4 in December to an astronomical 3+.

By comparison, Clinton's was 0.9 in September 1998.

Bush started with 0.8 in January '01.

...When it gets to 5, start stocking up on ammo. "
