According to Gallup, Obama's approval rating among moderate Republicans jumped 9 percentage points in the last two weeks, to 29 percent. That's still a dismal number, but as Gallup notes, that's the highest number Obama has banked among swing Republicans since May. Gallup credits the bump, in part, to Obama's compromise with the GOP on tax cuts. It's a stat that Obama aides are likely to closely watch heading into the 2012 presidential campaign, given that Obama won in 2008 in part because he was able to win support among moderate GOPers. Of course, it's a different story with conservative Republicans. Just 9 percent approve of the job Obama is doing, according to Gallup. Among all Americans, Obama's approval rating remained at 46 percent.
