    The results are in, and they're looking good.

    Even Rasmussen Reports is showing a steady rise in Obama's approval ratings:

    Average: Approve: 53.5 / Dissapprove: 43.8 / Spread: +9.7
    USA Today/Gallup: 54 / 43 / +11 (Newest - 9/11-9/13)
    CNN/Opinion Research: 58 / 40 / +18
    ABC News/Wash Post: 54 / 43 / +11
    Rasmussen Reports: 52 / 48 / +4
    Gallup: 53 / 40 / +13
    Associated Press/GfK: 50 / 49 / +1 (Oldest - 9/3-9/8)

    Looks pretty good.

    Guess people are starting to realize all that BS the right was pushing was a bunch of lies.

    A shit sandwich looks pretty good until you take a bite out of it. I don't believe the accuracy of these polls - especially with the large number of people in DC protesting Obama, his Administration and the Congress in general. The liberal press doesn't tell the truth about anything so why should they tell the truth about Obama's popularity ratings?

    There has certainly been an uptick - Hard to tell what that is coming from, but it has been consistent enough and across the board enough to be credible. I figure it's backlash from all the smear campaigns - people tend to rally around someone when they feel they've been unfairly attacked.
    People just don't like petty.

    50,000 people is not actually a "large number" as protests go.

    There were protests 10x as large when Bush had quite good numbers.

    He went on to win an election soon after 500,000 people protested the Iraq war at the 2004 RNC convention in NYC.

    Even Rasmussen Reports:

    Rasmussen Reports: Approve: 52 / Dissapprove: 48 / Spread: +4

    Up from: Approve: 49 / Dissapprove: 50 / Spread: -1 on Friday.

    That's +5 points, and on RASMUSSEN no less, Fox's polling service.

    yeah LWC, when even Rassmussen is forced to acknowledge the bump - you can't deny it.

    I love how right-wingers don't respond to threads that show facts they don't like.

    ROFL.

    What's the matter, this thread not "on message" enough for you all?

    That has to hurt.

    It is possible though that Obama stays popular and wins a re-election in 2012 without the Democrats holding Congress in 2010. Presidential popularity usually helps in the midterms, but it isn't a sure thing.

    2010 will certainly be interesting.

    Historically mid-terms are a boon for the opposition. I expect it to happen again in 2010 but it will be interesting to see if it is enough of a boon to give the GOP a majority in either the house or the senate. I think THAT will be close. And personally, I don't see congressional Dems helping themselves that much so far.
