    Pretty damn short lived little bump is over, falling 5 points in the past week:

    Gallup Daily: Obama Job Approval

    I wonder when Bill Clinton can start campaigning for Obama?

    I heard that Bill is going to replace one of the judges on American Idol, hence rendering him unable to actively campaign for The One.

    That has got to be a record for the world shortest lived bump for an event of that magnitude.

    Record Poverty and Skyrocketing Food & Gas Prices didn't die with Bin Laden. They're still here. The People are still suffering. His Bin Laden Poll-Bounce was probably the shortest-lived Poll-Bounce in Presidential History. It's gone.

    The bump was highly inflated by skewed poll samples on the part of AP et al to begin with.

    Yup. His bump is here and gone in record time.

    Reality is back in full swing.

    Gas prices. Food Prices. Unemployment and jobs.

    Being the Prez OL'BO will get the blame.

    Only the really stupid were fooled for a second. Obama's worshipers are still fooled. What does that say about them?

    Obamatown Massacre - Don't drink the kool-aid. These fools did not know they were part of a cult either

    Edited, link and state it's a graphic pic-Meister

    all of the historical poll data here-
    RealClearPolitics - Election Other - President Obama Job Approval


    This is not an outlier , see for yourself,(above link) Gallup has had obama less fav. than Ras, and vice versa, in fact they have never if I recall correctly, ever been further than 4-5 points away from each other either way....so, just let it go..;)

    His poll numbers do bounce around a lot. People who obsess over every wiggle in the poll numbers are doing themselves a disservice.

    Rather than freak out about what happens with the poll numbers, it is better to compare his results.

    With the OBL killing, the reality is AlQuaida is still around, unemployment is still high, Gas is expensive, the housing bubble is still not worked through.... life goes on.

    18 months from now we will be comparing him to his challenger. Who is going to sound more competent? Who has a better record of getting things done? What is the situation in the economy?
