Polarization, from Pew Research: “”For all of his hopes about bipartisanship, Barack Obama has the MOST POLARIZED early job approval ratings of any president in the past four decades,” says the Pew Research Center.

The poll finds that Obama has VERY HIGH approval from Democrats, 88 percent, and very LOW approval from Republicans, 27 percent.

The 61-point partisan gap ECLIPSES George W. Bush’s 51-point gap in his first year, and that was after the long recount and simmering charges from Democrats that Bush stole the 2000 election.
