Poll - Obama Job Approval Up

I know this will go over like a lead balloon here.

Job Approval (click here)

Quote:
Washington (CNN) President Barack Obama's approval rating is up five points since December as a growing number of Americans consider him a strong leader who is tough enough to handle a crisis, according to a new national poll. A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Tuesday also indicates that a jump in support by independent voters is behind the overall rise in the president's approval rating.

Fifty-three percent of people questioned in the poll approve of how Obama's handling his duties in the White House, up from 48 percent in a CNN poll that was conducted last month, as a very productive lame duck congressional session was nearing completion.

"Obama's approval rating among Democrats and Republicans is virtually unchanged since December, but among independents it has grown from 41 percent in December to 56 percent now," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "It's possible that his call for greater civility in the aftermath of the Arizona shootings was seen as a boost for the bipartisan solutions that typically attract independents."

The survey indicates that 59 percent of the public now thinks the president is tough enough to handle a crisis - up six points from last year - and 57 percent now consider him a strong and decisive leader - a four-point gain.

I personally don't put a whole lot of credibility in polls, I just thought this was interesting.

Re: Poll - Obama Job Approval Up

Total Approve = 48%

Total Disapprove = 51%

A person would never guess that, if the only info they got was from here.

Re: Poll - Obama Job Approval Up

I pointed out these numbers recently in another thread. This president is VERY strong. No one has had this kind of approval rating w/ 10% unemployment. Faux News makes it seem like he is weak when nothing could be farther from the truth.

As the economy continues to make a full recovery by mid 2012 combined w/ Repubs attempts to overturn healthcare reform and other go nowhere policies that they are pursuing he is a shoe-in to be reelected.

Dems can love him all they want. Repubs can hate him all they want. Neither matters as neither side can be convinced otherwise. Independents like me decide elections.

BTW, some idiot about 1 block from work rented a sign that says "Where is the Birth Certificate?" What a jackass. The Hawaiin nurse that helped Obama get delivered could cram Obama's birth certificate up a Birther's ass using an ax and they still wouldn't know it was there. These people are so effin stupid I swear to God.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.

Nor do I.. I do find it interesting that his ratings went up after the memorial service that looked more like a party than a memorial service.. I watched it, I'm still not really sure what to make of it, but bizarre comes to mind...

I think you're underestimating his disapproval rating here.
