Surprise, surprise

I know you all will be completely astonished by this survey. Guess what. Republicans and "Republican" states approve of the President at a higher rate than Democrats and "Democratic" states. Bungling incompetence is okay in red states, it would seem, as long as you're willing to thump the Bible and subjugate brown people. Garance Franke-Ruta, writing in Tapped, makes the excellent point that this also means the President won't likely be changing his political strategy any time soon.
