'AP-GfK Poll: Obama popular but doubts on progress'

...Overall, 53 percent of Americans approve of how Obama is governing, putting him roughly in the middle when compared with his modern-day predecessors halfway through their first terms.

Almost as many people rate Obama's presidency below average (34 percent) as call it above average (38 percent). Forty-one percent overall and 30 percent among independents say he understands the important issues the nation will face the next two years. Only 26 percent say he's kept most of his campaign promises.

Money Quote: "Despite vocal complaints from the left, the poll shows evidence that Obama's base isn't nearly as fractured as it has seemed. Democrats overwhelmingly give him high marks. Liberal Democrats are more likely to call Obama's presidency outstanding or above average than even moderate Democrats. And there's no difference between the two groups over whether Obama should face a primary challenge; majorities of both groups say no. It's largely a moot point as no serious challenger has emerged." :spray:

:rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl: :rofl:

Anyone else hear some soft explosions? Must have been the heads of the couple of dozen "progressives" who roam the Internet acting as though they speak for thousands, nay MILLIONS of "disappointed liberals" who are so terribly disappointed in this president and want him replaced. Oh my goodness gracious...
:rofl: :rofl:

1. This looks like the first post in this forum in a week.
Will the last Obama supporter who leaves DU remember to turn out the lights?

2. Oh, it's been longer than a week!

Obama supporters still abound on DU, though most of us just come around for sh*t and giggles now and have long since come to grips with the fact that the quality of conversation and discourse here is almost nil.

But we still come, mostly to laugh or shake our heads at those who have to obfuscate, deny and dismiss in order to cling to their anger at this president as well as those who scream loud and long in order to make their numbers seem larger and their voices stronger. This poll is proof of the magnificence of their utter impotence. So, of course it will be dismissed as "bullshit" here. :)
