Imagine righty bloggers being wrong…again! When the AIG bonus story blew up it was said that within weeks Obama’s approval rating would slip below 50% and he’d be in real trouble.
These sometimes turbulent weeks ? marked by new initiatives by Mr. Obama, attacks by Republicans and more than a few missteps by the White House ? do not appear to have hurt the president. Americans said they approved of Mr. Obama?s handling of the economy, foreign policy, Iraq and Afghanistan; fully two-thirds said they approved of his overall job performance.
By contrast, just 31 percent of respondents said they had a favorable view of the Republican Party, the lowest in the 25 years the question has been asked in New York Times/CBS News polls.
When can we stop listening to them?
