One Nation, Two Obamas?

What is the South smoking? Are they even tracking the same person?

Daily Kos today displayed this telling statistic: Barack Obama has strong favorability numbers everywhere in the United States—except in the South. So extreme is the contrast, that the South essentially mirrors (in the negative) the numbers that Obama tracks (on average) in the rest of the country:

NORTHEAST 84 5 11
SOUTH 28 67 5
MIDWEST 62 30 8
WEST 60 31 9
Rest of USA 68 23 9
