Mid Term Flashback: NEWSWEEK Poll: Obama Approval Rating Jumps, Democrats Close ‘Enthusiasm Gap’

Despite doom-saying about Democrats’ chances in the midterms, the latest NEWSWEEK Poll (full results) shows that they remain in a close race with Republicans 12 days before Election Day, while the president’s approval ratings have climbed sharply. The poll finds that 48 percent of registered voters would be more likely to vote for Democrats, compared with 42 percent who lean Republican (those numbers are similar to those in the last NEWSWEEK Poll, which found Democrats favored 48 percent to 43 percent). President Obama’s approval ratings have jumped substantially, crossing the magic halfway threshold to 54 percent, up from 48 percent in late September, while the portion of respondents who disapprove of the president dropped to 40 percent, the lowest disapproval rating in a NEWSWEEK Poll since February 2010.

“That said...I am still very very nervous.”

I am too, but I’m nervous because this Marxist has even a 1% chance of being re-elected. I seriously don’t know how we survive another 4 years of this. Bottom line — whatever the polls say now until election day, I wont breathe easy until this guy is defeated.

Thank you for the reminder. I also remember the Walker recall, where the media told us it was “even” and it was a freaking blowout, not even close.
