4. I guess ...

Looking at the break out numbers, there appears to be just that ... a mandate.

When one holds:

Still, Obama claims an 18-point edge over Republicans in the public's trust to handle the economy, as well as a 26-point advantage over the GOP in trust to protect the middle class. Moreover, 50 percent said they approve of Obama's handling of the economy, his highest mark in the category since the ABC/WaPo poll in June of 2010.


This is clearly a mandate, even if , while 48 percent disapprove of your handling of the economy.

I think what the 56%, that say they don't see a mandate, are really saying is they want to see something get done, rather than the grid-lock we have been experiencing.
