His numbers are higher now than they were. Reagan's numbers at this point were lower....

Well, I've pointed out in the WaPo, ABC, and AP polls, the party ID numbers are so skewed toward the democrats, the result(bump) was a foregone conclusion. They had their fingers on the scale to give him a "perceived" bump in the polls.

Secondly, they are polling "adults", which will always be more amenable towards the democrats.

Anybody notice anything strange here:

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

347.

While you're looking solely at averages, the reality is that his current approval rating is up...in fact it just jumped significantly.

From your own article:


Quote:
In fact, Obama ends his second year and eighth quarter in office with a 51% job approval rating in the latest Gallup Daily three-day rolling average, his best since May.
Yet another poll released last week from CNN showed Obama at 53% approval rating. Worse news for the GOP is the Indy voters is that his approval with them has jumped from 41 to 56%.

Quote:
Fifty-three percent of people questioned in the poll approve of how Obama's handling his duties in the White House, up from 48 percent in a CNN poll that was conducted last month
.

Quote:
among independents it has grown from 41 percent in December to 56 percent now," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland.
So while you're focused on averages and ultimately another thread in which you can portray the President in a poor light, the reality is that his current poll numbers are substantially up. In fact they are so high that he would get reelected quite easily, especially considering the swing back from Indy voters. That's important, and that's who makes elections, not partisan voters who are swayed by hysteria or averaged annual poll numbers.

CNN has it at 53%...while his approval with Indy has jumped 15 points.

It will only get worse for the GOP as they continue with their petty antics. In fact I think the GOP in charge of Congress ultimately will lock Obama in for 2012.

Read it and weep...

You first...

Nonetheless, Obama's 53 percent approval rating at the start of his third year in office is six points better than Bill Clinton's at the same time in his presidency and 16 points better than Ronald Reagan's figure in January of 1983.

The polling numbers are essentially the same among party lines, however most importantly the Indy voter's approval have swung over to Obama big time. That should worry the GOP.
