    Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

    53% Approval Rating, 40% Disapprove.

    Let the Republican Spin Machine and Disowning of Gallup begin!

    :lol:

    Where's all the gang? Frank, Sinatra, Ihope, etc. :D

    And what, this means that he's gaining momentum back? Don't make me laugh. Even his own party is bailing ship. The only one left to support him are getting voted out by the public anyway.

    Adios, I say.

    Personally, I just want to see all the nutters explain this. I had gotten my popcorn ready and everything but they seem to be avoiding this thread like the plague. :lol:

    And as much as I've been disappointed by Obama, I'm still glad he beat McCain/Palin.

    Not at all. But again, I wanted to see the nutters spin their way out of this one. :lol:

    Though the amount of people who "approve" of him according to this poll is very much near the amount that voted to elect him. Which is not surprising.

    A few plausible explanations:

    1) Margin of error.
    2) Gallup polls anyone with a pulse, not likely voters.
    3) Boyking hasn't done or said anything for a couple of weeks...That'd be enough for me to approve of.

    Its because he ordered a battle to happen which drove his approval rating up which is why I question the need to attack this taliban stronghold.
