Politico, another Hussein cult worship center on the web ^ | 12/26/11 | B Tau

According to the latest Gallup tracking poll, more Americans approve of the job that President Obama is doing than disapprove for the first time since this summer.

The latest Gallup survey shows that 47 percent of Americans now say they approve of the way that President Obama is handling his job. This is a 5 percent improvement since the Dec. 16-18 Gallup survey and marks the first time the president's numbers have been in positive territory since July. The number of Americans who say they disapprove of Obama's job performance has fallen to 45 percent, down 5 points from Dec. 16-18.

This is lag from low gas prices. He'll go down in January now that prices have gone back up and the Christmas bills come due.

"Romney or whoever will need 61 or 62% of the white vote and that just isn’t likely to happen."

White men. You only need that percentage of white men to win. That percentage carried 2010 and has been deep-dived in the interim and under no circumstances are they voting for Obama.

Also under no circumstances does Bobo get the Amish vote in the same percentages; 3-5% are going to sit on their hands this time ie not take the stinkin bus ride to the polls for a free sandwich and iced tea.

Not ever gonna happen, considering that Bobo polled in the single digits in many counties in the 2008 Ky Dem Primary...

Pike County, KY Hillary Clinton | 12,916 | 90.88% Barack Obama | 936 | 6.59%

Plenty of conservatives, including on FR, acted like 16 year old girls with stars in their eyes—they want a black conservative to worship, just like the libtards do w/ BO. Critically thinking adults are in short supply these days.

That is so true. I never understood the whole Cain train thing.

McCain was left with one option. To just go 100% negative and scorched earth

Two options. Option #2 was to vote against the Paulson-Goldman Sachs bailout.

It would have gotten him my vote for one.

In your second paragraph you refer to the 4 in 10 who love welfare and lying commuists to preferring hard work, etc. Does this mean you believe that because we have jumped from 5% unemployment to 15% under and unemployment, that suddenly 10% of our population now loves welfare when a few years ago they loved a job??

I pray to God every single morning and night that obama (even his last name doesn’t deserved to be capitalized!) will get tossed out of office next year. But I’m worried that the feud between the conservative and establishment factions of the GOP will divert attention away from what is at stake here.

I just wish everyone would put aside all of the petty fights and unite together to defeat this Marxist community organizer and rest of his minions in the White House and Congress! We cannot let them take advantage of a bitterly divided GOP and run away with the crimes and misdemeanors they’ve committed in the past 3 years!

This means what we're all dancing around arguing about 47 or 42%, or 38% approval ratings: there's roughly 4-in-10 (40%) out there who after all the failure this idiot has demonstrated, still think he's doing a good job.

All this excitement over tiny swings around 40-45% is like getting excited over whether your favorite lounger floats or sinks when your house is six feet underwater.

OK the reason Obama’s ratings went up are because he pulled us out of IRAQ, thus appeasing his war hating liberal supporters...THat is how you manage poll numbers! INDEPENDENTS and REPUBLICANS haven’t changed their minds about his FAILURES!
