I doubt anymore than democrats did two eyars in Bush's prediency. Obama still has alot fo problems and they are not going away. His real problems are with the liberal bases with changing circumstances and with independents shown but the mid term elections. Especailly the stae house results that do not portend well for democrats in general.Who knop0w what the future bringsd as no one saw the state hosues change so red this last eelction.He is not goig to be too popualr weith hsi base if he really trys to solve the debt problem ;IMO.

It's meaningless this far out. That's why no one is going ballistic. He got a bump from the funeral/pep rally, but if you look inside the polls, to the numbers on the issues, he is still in trouble.

This is a good analysis of the recent polls.

With Obama scoring as poorly as he has on the issues in all three media polls this week despite what can generously be called friendly samples, the uptick in personal likability isn’t going to last long. The only way Obama improves his standing in Year 3 is to have a massive increase in job creation, and that won’t be coming when Obama’s administration is pushing regulatory adventurism to bypass the hostile Congress.

You used that violent gun reference to ammunition performance. That is at least as evil as Sarah Palin puting a target on states where efforts needed to be consentrated politically. Although this time you used "ballistic" in direct reference to the POTUS and the political party of which you constantly mock. Are you trying to incite something violent?

"What?! How can this be? Rasmussen must be a liberal communist socialist organization now!"



Nope.

No one gets a second term with less than a 53% approval rating.

Default Gallup: Obama Averages 46.7% Job Approval in Second Year - Low End of the Scale

Obama Averages 46.7% Job Approval in Second Year

Down more than 10 percentage points from first-year average

Quote:
Barack Obama averaged 46.7% job approval in his second full year in office, spanning Jan. 20, 2010-Jan. 19, 2011. That places Obama's approval on the low end compared with other presidents elected to office since World War II -- similar to the averages of Jimmy Carter and Bill Clinton, but better than Ronald Reagan's historical low second-year average.
Anybody notice anything strange here:

LOOK how many polls they needed, compared to other presidents, to put him at that number.

347.

Pfft. Nice try, but you're talking about the past. What matters is the present, and the future. His ratings are positive across the board. Even Rasmussen has him up by two percentage points.
