Default Obama's Rating at All-Time High

So...people are excited that our government is 1.75 trillion dollars in debt?

Well the article states:
Quote:
In the survey, 68 percent have a favorable opinion of the president, including 47 percent whose opinion is "very positive" both all-time highs for Obama in the poll. Moreover, 67 percent say they feel more hopeful about his leadership and 60 percent approve of his job in the White House.

Yet the percentage of Americans who are confident that Obama has the right goals and policies for the country 54 percent is slightly smaller, suggesting that the president is more popular than his policies are. An example: 57 percent tend to support the stimulus, compared with 34 percent who tend to oppose it.
So, it's a little bit more than just those who voted for them. Lots of people are jumping on the press' positive portrayal.

Just the fact that it comes from MSNBC means that it's most likely a lie. Polls can be skewed to say whatever you want them to say, it just depends on your sample group and how you word your questions.

Who cares, it hasn't even been 2 months yet. Lets bring out the polls and see where its at in 6 months or a year. Its a new term with new ideas, sure its going to be high. If the country tanks and its still hig, then we need to worry.

I guess because I voted for Obama and have high hopes for him that makes me an idiot and a moron. Thanks Mac for calling me an idiot and unintelligent.

Do they call these people to survey them? Why doesn't anyone ever call me? Is anyone here on their calling list?

Well, I actually agree with Rush Limbaugh when he said, "I hope he fails." If Obama is trying to turn this nation into a socialist, nanny-state, then why in the world would any American want that to succeed? That's completely contrary to the values that our nation's founders fought and died for.

Obama is borrowing our future generations into bankruptcy, punishing the very people who create jobs with increased taxes and wealth redistribution, and giving handouts to those people who don't even work. There's nothing American about any of that.

It's too early yet. God help him though I hope he does find a way to help the economy along.

I didn't vote for him and I would have prefered Mccain but I'll stand behind him and pray for him. We may not agree with his methods but in the end I'll judge him by the results.
