obama is definently trending upwards, its obvious in my opinion and i classify myself as a moderate.

1. ive noticed way less attacks from the right.
2. he's successfully moved to the center in minds of americans and moderates with the last poll i read
3. like I said before the november election. republicans can be blamed now since they are in control of the house. before they really couldn't since they had no majority in senate or house. now they can though. they own what they do now.
4. he's done a great job of coming off neutral while the nuts on both sides continue to look like idiots. (palin, dupnik)
5. the economy is improving. slowly, but it is improving. unemployment went from 9.8 to 9.4. and dont give me that crap about people giving up looking for jobs. 1. if you gave up, i have no sympathy for you. 2. i dont believe any rational person would "give up" looking for a job. what do you do with no job? obviously you will keep looking.

If you actually look at past NBC/WSJ polls, that particular one was taking a few weeks after Election Day. The last NBC/WSJ poll, prior to Election Day was 49/48. The RCP average was 49.5/46.8, and actually should have been 49.3/46.8 (RCP had the 2nd to last Fox poll in their figures prior to Election Day, and not the last one, 2nd to last was 49/46, last was 47/46.

His policies stink. What difference will it make? Will his policies improve if we like him more?

I am less concerned about his approval than his policy. The economy determines who is elected and who is not. If this president can cut the debt, reduce unemployment, and restore US manufacturing, he has my vote. If not, step aside.

I think it's all about the economy. It's still not good, but we're starting to see daylight.

Secondly, they are polling "adults", which will always be more amenable towards the democrats.
However, this thread is about a Rasmussen poll, and we know that their sample couldn't possibly be skewed, right?
