I find these polls quite amuzing. I have never been polled and I do not know anyone in my circle of family, friends, neighbors who have been polled. Perhaps polls should be taken and shelved due to the apparent calls to the same people over and over again. I am not happy with the Obama economy and the Obama stimulus program, just as I was not happy with the Bush economy. I am not happy with the fact that the Democratic controlled Congress and Senate members initiated the current stimulus and then voted on a package they did not read - as stated by Barney Frank in relation to the AIG bonus stipulation. I am not happy with the lack of strong, conservative leadership in the Republican Party. I am particularly not happy with the social direction with no concern for cost that the Democrat Party is leading us. Maybe all of the above is why I have never been polled!

I could definately say that the reason they "approve" of barry hussein sotero obama is the following:
1. Most people stop following political news right after they elect their candidate. obamites are even worse because they have an average iq of 40.
2. Most obamites don't understand politics and the ramifications of what this idiot is doing to America. Obamites are even worse because they're still chanting hope change.
3. obamites are still brainwashed because they still think that government check is coming and that the rich will be forced to buy them stuff. obamites are the worst types because they've been living their lives with their hands out JEALOUS of what others have purchased through hard work.

I'm sure this is flawed too....

FOX News Poll: Obama's One-Month Report Card

One month into Obama's term 60 percent of Americans approve of the job he is doing as president, down from 65 percent three weeks ago (27-28 January 2009). Similarly, the portion of people that disapproves has increased to 26 percent, up from 16 percent. Almost all of the change can be attributed to a decrease in approval and an increase in disapproval among Republicans. In fact, among Obama's party faithful, his job approval has gone up from 85 percent in late January to 90 percent today.

Views of Obama as a person have also dipped. Today 68 percent have a favorable opinion of him and 25 percent unfavorable. Last month Obama had his highest favorable rating to date when 76 percent of Americans said they had a positive opinion and 15 percent unfavorable (13-14 Jan 2009). His average favorable rating for the last six months is 59 percent, with the lowest being 56 percent in October 2008.

Here again, most of the change in Obama's favorable rating comes from Republicans and a smaller change among independents.

I'm sure CNN's liberal bias and NBC's directive to not be critical of Obama have NOTHING to do with this.

I agree. After 8 years of Bush who wouldn't approve of President Barack H.Obama after 100 days? You Rushpublicans are a joke. If you didn't want President Obama to win you should have come stronger than McCain and that trailer park Queen Pahlin. Sit back and enjoy the next 3yrs and 265 days.

60% is still pretty good.

The last time Bush saw the number 60 was when he took the SAT's.

Hail to the Chief! The gloom & Doomers are like a bunch of jealous virgins blinded by their racism and stupidity. Mostly trailor trash and upper-class, both with their pants stuck in their butt so tight that they have trouble walking. "WE" are the middle class-the "cream ala petite", the chosen class, the elite, the superior, the ruling class!

If you've never been polled, how would they know not to ask you?

Logic is clearly not your forte.
