The plunge in "favorables" hitting Biden, too

(via Washington Examiner) Biden's popularity plunges; lower than Cheney's by: Byron YorkChief Political Correspondent10/26/09 10:55 PM EDT

Vice President Joe Biden's favorable rating has fallen to 42 percent in a new Gallup poll, down from a high of 59 percent just after last year's election. Biden's unfavorable rating in the new poll is 40 percent, up from 29 percent last November. (Eighteen percent of those surveyed say they have no opinion of Biden.)

"Biden's average favorable rating during his time in office so far is 45 percent -- well below the average 65 percent favorable rating for Vice President Dick Cheney during Cheney's first year in office. Vice President Al Gore's favorable rating during his first year, 55 percent, was also higher than Biden's. (Gallup did not measure vice presidential popularity before Gore.).."

  1. You may have heard by now that Natural Gas will change the way we think about energy consumption in America. According to NewNatrualGas.Org, an industry and business group, new technologies have unlocked natural gas supplies that will last another 100 years. That supply will continue to grow. Natural gas has 1/2 the emissions of CO2 when compared to coal. Natural gas has the economic ability and supply potential to supplant coal fired electric generation plants in America and it doesn't have to be imported. Other sources of renewable energy can be added as needed but they are far less cost effective and have a very limited potential. The natural gas industry employs almost 3 million Americans and this will grow as this country becomes more energy self reliant. 97% of natural gas already comes from America and Canada this will increase to nearly 100% as we invest in the discovery, production and utilization of our own natural gas supplies.
