Obama Hits Three-Year High in Approval Rating

Fully 60 percent of Americans have a favorable impression of Obama in the new poll, up slightly from October but a clear shift in opinion from an election year in which his ratings hovered in the mid-to-low 50s. And by 39 percent to 26 percent, the president now has more “strongly” positive ratings than strongly negative reviews, breaking a two-year stretch in which intense opposition was on par with (or higher than) intense support. [Washington Post]

THIS IS unsurprising to me.

After the inaugural festivities, which were as feel good and wonderful to watch as anything our U.S. political pomp producers can push, how could President Obama’s approval rating not soar?

Obama’s Second Inaugural Address didn’t hurt.

It brings back memories of how Obama came into office in 2008. Even his most die hard supporters remember where it all went from there.

      They really aren’t sure how to proceed right now. Whether Obama & Dems will exploit it, well, we shall see.

      I’m rooting for progressives to push them hard.
