Obama Gets High Approval


A new Bloomberg News poll finds President Obama with high marks for his performance -- a 56% approval rating and 61% favorability rating -- "even as Americans express anxiety about his domestic policies. One possible reason: Republicans aren't offering an alternative."

Despite negative sentiment over some of his policies, Republicans aren't benefiting since the survey finds that by about a 2-to-1 margin, Americans say Obama is doing a better job on the economy than his predecessor, George W. Bush.

Respondents also say by 40% to 32% that they would vote for a Democratic candidate for Congress in 2010. A slight plurality, 48% to 44% has a favorable opinion of the Democratic Party. In contrast, the Republican Party, by 52% to 38%, gets an unfavorable rating.

4. On XM's POTUS channel this morning, some bonehead was
talking about how Democrats are likely going to lose a lot of seats in 2010. One of the reasons he cited was the fact that when people are asked, in a general sense, whether they support Dems or Repubs, the Repubs come out ahead by 10 points. Yeah, I don't think so.

When I heard that I thought he was full of shit and now I'm sure of it. Ten points my ass. Bloomberg shows a 12 point difference in favor of Dems. I'm trying to recall what organization the guy was from (it was probably Michael Steele. lol).

up bush+cheney's mess and all george&dick wanted to do was get IRaq's OIL and a military base there while screwing America out of her Blood and Treasure..with the help of the corporatemediawhoredom.

No comparison..bushcheney aren't even in the same league.
