Poll: Riley's Katrina Bounce Gone
Do you approve or disapprove of the job Bob Riley is doing as Governor?
Approve : 49%
Disapprove : 48%
Other than last month's 58/37 approval, Riley has been fluttering right around even approval/disapproval ratings over the last several months and this latest poll shows his Katrina bounce has almost completely dissipated.
This poll also confirms other recent polls (here and here) that show Bob Riley's post-Katrina surge subsiding. The silver lining for the governor is that it does seem he has significantly recovered from his post-Amendment One lows and has at least a fighting shot at a second term. Indeed, his opponents are not without flaws as well.
But with Roy Moore on the warpath and two Democrats looking to oust him, Bob Riley needs to fully engage in the campaign and try to arrest the trend of his falling poll numbers.
