Shh, don't tell the Repubs, but Obama and Democrats poll numbers are soaring!

It must be really good out there for Obama considering the heavily biased Rasmussen and Gallup show his numbers soaring!

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Monday shows that 56% of Likely Voters at least somewhat approve of President Obama's job performance. Forty-two percent (42%) at least somewhat disapprove.

This is the second day in a row the president's approval rating has been this high. This is his highest level of approval since being reelected and the highest since the earliest days of his time in office


In addition to the Rasmussen numbers, Gallup has Obama at 54%(+2 since yesterday) Approve 40%(-1) Disapprove.

And now for the most devastating piece of polling out of them all:

Democrats have now jumped to an 11-point lead over Republicans on the Generic Congressional Ballot for the week ending December 2, 2012.


Poor Repubs, not even their propaganda polling firms have good news for them. Imagine what the real numbers will be once good polling firms release their numbers. Who would've thought that people like guy who wants to help the Middle Class rather than bending over backwards for the rich? Keep kissing the 2%'s ass Repubs, because America is finally seeing your true, obstructionist, no idea, 19th century colors. And come Midterm time, there will be a bigger landslide than you can imagine.

2. We need to start working on that objective NOW

And by god, they seem to be determined to provide us with the ammunition to achieve that goal ... who are we to decline their generosity?

We can do this!

11. not entirely sure we need to do anything

Obama won because Republicans made up crap on the polls and just made up crap. Keep this up I really don't see anything happening... 2014 rolls around hopefully we can make the best of 2 years plus

17. Governors only have so much election sway. We need SOS offices.

They can't beat us in fair elections.

9. It does seem like the 2014 campaign has started, and that is smart

Obama has laid out a very nice plan that is achievable and consistent with what he campaigned on. The GOP hasn't moved an inch. Even with Boehner's "offer" today, they still haven't given any specifics.

The best play is probably to let everything lapse, hit the road making sure everybody knows why their taxes are going up. In January, if the GOP still doesn't want to play on the big solutions, then Obama should do a limited deal that gives TEMPORARY cuts to the middle class only, gets some stimulus spending and not much else. From there, we head toward 2014.

If the GOP doesn't like the sequester on the Pentagon (which really is of hardly any consequence,) then there is room for a deal that also includes shoring up Medicare and the Education budgets.

3. Damn, I wish House elections were tomorrow

I don't remember what the generic ballot was going into the election but I don't think it was +11.

7. Americans see through the GOP bullshit. America wants taxes raised on the rich. Period.

The GOP doesn't care for the country and the welfare of its citizens. Their only concern is making sure their megarich patrons are taken care of.

They made me sick.

16. Seeing how

More Americans voted for Dems for congress yet the republicans still control the house, we're going to need a landslide of voters to remove them. Not to be a downer, but something will need to be done about the gerrymandering.
