    It’s kinda weird that Herb hasn’t been posting Obama’s popularity numbers lately. I’ll help him out:

    President Obama is back at 50% approval.

    “…the new poll represents Obama’s biggest approval bump since the mission that killed Osama bin Laden in May 2011. His approval rating has risen nine percentage points in the past month alone, while his disapproval has dropped by 10 points.”

    When he leaves office, people will better understand the high quality President he was.

    There is a better than even chance Herb was totally unaware of this.

    News like this does not penetrate the bubble.

    50% in this day in age is pretty good actually. You can count on 40% right off the bat to disapprove no matter what.

    I’ve been MIA because things got way to heated in here and became no fun for me. Focused on the Fam and my wife’s father passed away just after Christmas so it’s been busy.

    I stepped away but I’m back!

    🙂

    Oh wow. Sorry to hear about your father-in-law, Trix. That takes precedence.

    Glad to see you’re doing well, and that you’re back.

    Obama’s overall average to date according to Gallup is 47%.

    Bush averaged 49% for his entire term. He peaked at 90% after 9/11.

    “Obama’s overall average to date according to Gallup is 47%.

    Bush averaged 49% for his entire term. He peaked at 90% after 9/11.”

    So, what’s the takeaway? Seems to be more proof of just how valueless these polls are. Now that Obama is on the upswing, all of a sudden, we don’t hear much from the O’Haters about them anymore.
