Mr. President, Americans think you're the man.
President Obama is more popular than ever, according to a new poll that shows two-thirds of the country feels "hopeful" about Obama's leadership.
Obama now has a 60% approval rating, and people feel things are looking up since he took office, according to a new Wall Street Journal/NBC News poll.
The percentage of those who say the country's "headed in the right direction" has skyrocketed compared to the number who felt that way before Obama took office.
Now, 41% of Americans say the country's going the right way, compared to 26% who thought so just before Obama's inauguration.
Forty-four percent of those polled still say the country's on "the wrong track" but "given the economic conditions, pollsters expected it to be much higher," the Journal said. The survey found "a record 70%" of people very dissatisfied with the economy.
Of course, not everyone likes the new president: About 28% of those polled said they feel "doubtful" about his plans.
Most Americans still back Obama's expansive economic stimulus program, the poll found even though a majority also feel it will help the economy only a little or possibly not at all. [snip]

In the words of Colonel Sherman Potter: “HORSE FEATHERS!!!!”
There, fixed it more.
So the WSJ does the poll, numbers day 60% want to kick Zer0's ass to the curb, NBC news then applies the affirmative action mitigating adjustment of 20 points and VIOLA! 60% approval rating.....just like GPAs from a HBCU, gotta drop off at least a full point.
They keep call the same people over and over, what do they expect?
OBAMA LIED AND THE ECONOMY DIED!
"...Things are looking up..."??? WTF!
Ray Charles could see that this is a crock o chit!
so 60% of 1000 people,
600 people think Obama is swell. whoop de do
And 59% think the country is going to hell in a hand basket and don't want to pay the mortgages of the 41%.
Here’s how they do these polls:
“Hello, who’s the dumbest person in your household? Are they home? Can I talk to them? Is your dog available?”
Who are they calling, San Francisco or Watts?
All is WELLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL!!!
Celeste Katz knows too many things that ain’t true.
I think in the stock market they refer to an temporary upswing before things continue going down again, as “dead cat bounce”.
"When the people find that they can vote themselves money, that will herald the end of the republic." ~~~ Ben Franklin.
The poll means just what it says and nothing more. 600 bozoes think Obambi is swell. Margin of error 3%, either way, meaning it could be 618 bozoes, or 582 bozoes and not 600 bozoes. Any questions?
