I know that title won't go over with a few of you, but that's pretty well what the latest (17-18 May 2013) CNN/ORC poll has to say.

The so-called "scandal's" have no traction as a majority of Americans still trust and admire the President and Democratic Party policies.

My guess is the WH spokesperson hit the nail on the head the other day saying they'd "seen the Republican's scandal playbook many times" before over the years and aren't overly concerned.

In the end, like all the other "scandals" Republicans trumpet, they won't find any actual evidence the WH or President did anything wrong. So it's basically a lot of vote posturing or hot-air if you like.

From the poll we learn, "The latest CNN/ORC poll reveals that President Obama’s approval rating has gone up by two points from 51% in April to 53% today, while his disapproval rating has fallen by two points from 47% to 45%. While 85% of those polled agree that the IRS targeted of political groups is very or somewhat important issue, by a margin of 61%-37% respondents believed that President Obama’s statements on the matter have been completely mostly true.(That 37% number comes up a lot in polling. It represents the higher end of the number of self-identified conservatives/ Republicans in the country.) By a margin of 54%-42% respondents think Republicans are reacting appropriately to the matter, but the vast majority (55%-37%) believe that the IRS acted alone without White House orders."

Bottom line, the President has always been viewed as an honest broker by most Americans and Republicans by constantly saying otherwise, are most likely hurting their own brand, as well as further dividing the country.

Oh yeah he's done just great..
Budget deficit has tripled
Unemployment still awful.. when you add those who have given up hope and have stopped looking for work (they are NOT included in the statistics).
Millions have lost their jobs
Millions more on welfare.
Millions of homes forclosed on.
Our children and grandchilden saddled with HUGE debt.
You on drugs by any chance or from another planet?
Unreal!!!

You know bubba131, you're very much like Walter Mattahu, grumpy in every posting. For you own mental health well-being, try viewing life's glass as half-full, not half-empty. You will be happier I can assure you.

Which brings us to the President. Has he fixed everything he inherited? No, of course not, that would have been impossible. But he's done a tremendous amount when all is considered including extracting us from two wars, halt the economic collapse of the nation thus ending the Great Recession, and restart the jobs engine in the nation for 30-some straight months. Arguably it could be said that nothing was of higher importance than those four issues.
And when you consider he's done it all without a shred of help from Republicans, you can only admire and respect him more, hence the polling Odds Gal addressed initially.

Myself, like the majority of Americans, view the nation's glass as half full and getting fuller daily. And frankly speaking, few if any of us will entrust a Republican with the presidency any time in the foreseeable future. Too much very bad recent history to ever go down that pathway again.

I wish you well and happiness.

You know I am just old fashioned I guess but I dispise a person who lies and especially one who lies constantly.
When Obama ran in 2008 did he or did he not promise to halve the budget deficit?
Did he do that?..YES or NO
When he ran last year did he or did he not promise to cut the deficit? YES or NO?
When he ran last year did he or did he not promise not to increase taxes on the middle class?
Did the budget he presented include a raise in taxes on the middle class? YES or NO?
I object strongly to a politican who says what the public wants to hear rather that actually trying to take constructive action to solve problems.
I would also remind you that the "economic collapse" of the nations was caused by the Democratic dominated senate who passed that STUPID housing bill allowing people to buy homes even if they couldn't afford them.
I agree that the democrats will be in power a long time due to their voting base of people getting goodies from the US treasury.
As the old saying goes "give a person a welfare check, pay their housing ill,paytheir utility bills, give them food stamps,give them a cell phone, their children free meals at school and they will vote Democractic forever..."..A truism if I ever heard one!!

Maybe instead of laying around watching reruns of Duck Dynasty and eating Cheetos during the middle of the day, perhaps the original poster is .... wait for it .... at work?

And before the question comes up, yes, I'm at work right now taking a break. Thanks to the uptick in the economy over the past few years, demand for my line of scientific work has increased as has my salary. And I'm fortunate to be able to telecommute.

During the Dark Ages of Science, also known as the Bush years, my degree only got me as far as the doors of a Big Box store where I made minimum wage. And I was lucky to have that job.

Do I believe that the President kept his word? Yes, as much as he can with the unyielding members of Congress.

Bubba you are part of the problem. You refuse to observe what is happening all around you. You claim that you work in some scientific field. But your ignorance amazes me. Wake up and educate yourself on what is happening in this country and how much of it can be blamed on the current administration. It is shameful where we are today as a nation. Keep sticking your head in the sand and when the coffers run out and they will, you will wake up one day wondering how it all happened. I bet a dollar to a donut on that day, the Both parties will be pointing fingers and blaming it all on each other, when there is enough blame on both sides of the aisle to go around.

Never worked in a scientific field..where did that come from?
I agree both sides are guilty of public deception but those that claim the curent adminstration os guilt free and doing a super job are ALSO part of the problem as they put party first and country second ot third..

Just 1 question you are saying that Obama can't be held responsable because of congress.
correct me if im wrong Bush's last 2 years was with dem. controling congress. Wouldnt it be fair to say bush was in power only 6 of his 8 years?
Obamas 1st 2 years he had house and senate in power with DEM.

No Im not a big fan of bush. yet i do wonder how you give the president a bye because of congress but not bush.
So in the big crash in 2006-2007 congress was controled by Nancy and Reid. So why not say that was to blame on cogress.
You cant have it for one without the other.
I personly think all of them are IDIOTS but im not gonna blame bush 6 years later. reagan didnt after carter and clinton didnt fter 1st bush.
just relize Obama is doing a crappy job.
