Not bad, huh?! Only 7% of liberals disapprove. You wouldn't know it by some of the posts here.

1. I'm struck by the 42% approval from conservatives.
That seems major to me. Turning the red states purple. :headbang:

3. It makes me wonder how there's such a big difference between
"Repubs." and "Conservatives." I would've thought those numbers would've been the other way around. But it's VERY good news, since only 21% of people consider themselves "Repubs." while I've heard MANY people use the line that they don't consider themselves Repubs., but they DO consider themselves Cons. :D

13. There are, of course, conservative Democrats and Independents.
Many Southern and Midwestern Dems, for example, more than likely self-ID as conservatives.

2. I consider myself an "approve"
and complain quite frequently.

I "approve" because he's "our guy" and he deserves a grace period.

5. Happy to hear it. Do you consider yourself a liberal?
Just because there are libs. here who do NOT approve, or so they say here.

9. Oh yeah I should have mentioned that. Yes, I'm definitely a liberal.
I can easily see why others would not approve. But it's all we've got.

4. Also interesting
Some in the MSM would have you think that liberals are all mad and disapproving because President Obama isn't giving them everything they want. I think 90% shows that is obvious bull.

7. Yup. I'm glad most people don't seem to believe the hype
in the "liberal" media.

10. What's weird is that all 5% of disapproving Democrats post in GD/P!
How freaky is that?

12. remember when 90% of the country supported bush?
these numbers mean nothing except that when some of us stand on principle we can expect castigation.

20. I approve and I also criticize when I believe it is necessary.
I'm pleased by these numbers, and I give Obama's first 100 Days a B.
