PRESIDENT OBAMA has been running even on approval/disapproval numbers. In the latest Daily Gallup Tracking Poll taken during the three days of the Democratic National Convention, President Obama’s approval number is up, 52% approval to 43% disapproval.
It also should be noted that in some national polls, which I don’t cite because this is an Electoral College battle at this point, Obama has even been lagging in a couple of snapshot polls.
With the jobs report now out, we’ll see what happens with the approval, but at the close of the Democratic National Convention the Democrats and President Obama should be very pleased with 52%.
Enjoy it while it lasts.
