    Obama’s Approval Rating, Popularity Spike After Election

    There may not be a consensus yet on how much political capital President Obama picked up in his re-election, but a number of post-election polls suggest his victory did wonders for his public standing.

    A USA Today/Gallup survey released on Friday showed Obama and his party drawing goodwill from much of the country in the wake of their triumph at the ballot box last week. Fifty-eight percent of Americans have a favorable view of the president — up 3 points from the USA Today/Gallup poll conducted right before the election. It’s also his highest favorability rating in the poll since July of 2009.

    The public’s view of Democrats is also positive in the wake of a largely successful election for the party. Fifty-one percent of those surveyed have a favorable impression of the party, a 6-point bump since August and a more impressive showing than the 43 percent who have a favorable view of the Republican Party.
  2. Well, of course.

    A. He paid them all off.

    B. He cheated.

    C. Whatever else Fox is saying since they got trounced.
  3. 50% of the country are lazy, layabout, do nothing, gov't entitlement idiots.

    Take their entitlements away and I bet obama becomes much less popular.

  10. Not to worry, his approval ratings will play out just like the last time. At least last time he had umpteen rounds of Quant Easing to dull the pain of an economy gone awry...what's the encore to try and shovel it all under the rug?
