Obama Approval Hits Highest Since 2009

A new Gallup poll shows President Obama's approval rating at 56%, his highest mark on that question since October 2009, with just 37% disapproving of his job performance.

"The timing of the increase in Obama's ratings could reflect a broad-based public reaction to the Newtown shootings, similar to the 'rally around the flag' effect often seen at the start of wars and other threats to national security, in which Americans rally behind their leader. It could also reflect the impact of the president's specific actions after the tragedy, including his attendance and speech at a Newtown prayer service Sunday night, and his appointment on Wednesday of a national task force to recommend steps that can be taken to reduce gun violence in the future."

1. Even though it's Gallup, I rec'd anyway. Since it's Gallup, he's probably at +60%.
