    In an April 24th poll, the UPI reports that 56% of Americans give President Obama a "positive" rating, 23% give him an "OK". Only 21% of Americans give Obama a negative or poor rating.

    That's stellar.

    Are you in the near 80% or do you find yourself among the extremist minority who rates the president poorly?

    That sounds about right but at Real Clear, he's been consistently in the 60-64% range since January. I tend to find those polls more viable.

    yes....polls are ALWAYS accurate

    and apparently "OK" equals support.....

    imagine if employers were like that....hey what do you think of that guy....he's ok....sweet, let's hire that "OK" guy, he'll do

    I voted for Obama, and I think many rightwingers haven't given him enough time.

    But that said, this poll doesn't mean anything to me.

    After 911, Bush had a huge approval rating because he immediately went after the buttheads who attacked and who planned the attack against us.


    Then the dummy and his followers dropped the ball, let the bad guys get away to regroup, and attacked the wrong country.

    Doh!

    i am actually disapointed that obama has had to alter his campaign stated posistion on several things.....you knew it was going to happen but it is anoying voting for change and then getteing status quo....

    side note.....which country should have been attacked after 911.....

    Two countries:

    Afghanistan and Saudi Arabia.

    Saudi Arabia is NOT a U.S. allie. They are horrible. Their laws (especially toward women) are deplorable. Disgusting.


    Saudi Arabia is no different than the neighbor who beats his wife close to death. Would you want to have a beer with him?

    Not THIS argument again.... :doubt:

    Dude - the polls proved to be right last year. Obama won just like they said they would. Just because YOU don't like Obama, doesn't mean the polls are wrong.

    That's a lot lower than GWB's approval rating. No wonder people are calling Obama 'Bush III'.

    not this "this argument again" response....i have a broken record, do you want to buy it?

    i noticed you cut out the rest of my post....why?

    i see......so when the polls allegedly said gore would win......and then bush won......doesn't mean those polls are right just because you don't like bush

    George W. Bush? That Bush? His last approval rating was 22%. Odd......nearly the exact number that disapprove of Obama.

    I have some beautiful sour grapes....would you like another helping?
