1. This is normal for a reelected president

There is a resevoir of good will and the negative media coverage tends to go down and be replaced by positive media coverage.

23. that's not really what has happened this time though

I don't see all this good will and positive media coverage that you speak of.

I suspect that he is getting a backlash bump as a result of much GOP "poor sportsmanship" since the election. It makes Obama look like the adult in the room by comparison.

24. Exactly.

The republicans are behaving like 7th graders. The president has embraced some truly populist rhetoric (helping 98% , the wealthy can afford to pay more etc.).

Those of us suffering out here feel real glimmers of hope.

My rating of any president is hitched directly to how far they turn away from the corrupting elites and toward the suffering Everyman.

Obama continues to turn.

4. What exactly are you referring to?

Every time Obama or his officials have spoken about anything since the 6th it has been with a forcefulness that had been sorely lacking. Whether it has been about Susan Rice & McCain's pathetic antics, raising taxes on the more wealthy among us, or about getting aid to those on the coast, Obama has stood firm in what he has believed to be right -- and, frankly, for the case he made during the campaign.

Why is this not evident?

21. I think his popularity hinges somewhat on not embracing the term "mandate"

His behavior is being assessed. He's doing great. And this is Gallup. So imagine how popular he truly is....

3. The more the RW attacks,

the better platform he's got for hitting back, or rather showing strength. The defense of Susan Rice is a good example. He's showing how callow the other side really is.

Now Franklin Graham is calling down God's wrath on him.. Come on! I thought it says in the Bible that whatever leaders you have in place, they were put there by God! That's what it says in the Old Testament.

6. I suspect at least some of that bump is Romney voter buyer's remorse.

As they see Obama taking charge and word gets out about the incompetence of the Romney GOTV efforts and as Romney keeps saying stupid shit many are probably wondering just what it is they saw in the Mittster. In six months 10% of Romney voters will be telling pollsters they voted for Obama.

11. I think we should make a strong, strong effort to make sure *everyone*,

especially the right wing true believers, knows that Money Boo Boo had his staffers' campaign credit cards cancelled within just a few minutes of his concession speech--with no warning at all!--so that many of them found themselves stranded without cabfare late at night and without plane fare to get back to their home bases.

No other campaign has ever done that as far as I know, and I think that information ight dampen the enthusiasm of at least some who might ptherwise be willing to join a GOP campaign.

Certainly it means that Rmoney will never be able to persuade a lot of people to join his campaign if he ever thinks of trying again for public office.

10. READY TO JUMP TOO!

K&R

By golly, ain't that pretty! 58%. Me thinks PO has started listening to his base. Democrats all over the place are standing up with a semblance of a spine. I hope it's spreading!

No deal to put the cliff business off until after the new year. Nope, we need to hold their feet to their own fire and get this big issue behind us. I made up my mind long ago about this cliff gimmick. I am more than ready to jump. Weeeeeeeeeeeeeee!

13. The Dems should let the Bush tax cuts expire, and then introduce a tax-cut package just for the

99%, without cuts for the 1%. DARE the Repubs to block that, and if they do, take it to the people with a huge PR campaign, to make sure they understand that the GOP is blocking tax cuts for everyone because the rich are only ones they really give a darn about.

15. That's right....

..... back them into a corner. Your scenario is exactly what Dems should do. And what I think they WILL do. There won't be a thing the Republicons' can do. We've got the ball now, and we are on the winning team. Period.

16. That would not be tax cuts for the 99%!

That would be tax cuts for the 100% on their first $250,000.

Everyone would get the tax cut, don't repeat the Republicans meme.

17. There ain't nothing grows in your hand, but your pecker, Mister President...

Spend that "political capital" Mister President! We need a new deal, not another raw deal. Time to pay back the political favors you owe, like the GOPer presidents ALWAYS do. They pay back the wealthy 2%...You can pay back the other 98% who helped you back into the White House. 58% and counting are behind you now Mister Obama. We need you to work for us, not the GOP's contributors.

But this definitely gives him some capital - hope he uses a big chunk of it on climate change legislation.

29. Wow. That's higher than it's been in a very long time.

Still, it's Gallup--so they're probably using that wonderful LV model.
