As Republicans search for new ways to cave on their attempt to take the country hostage and call it winning, Rasmussen (pollster to the Republican stars) has President Obama’s approval rating on the rise at levels not seen since last spring. Obama currently has a 51% approval rating per Thursday’s Presidential tracking poll.

Fifty-one percent of likely voters approve of President Obama’s job performance, while 47% disapprove. This should help spike the GOP over to the bargaining table with a clean debt ceiling offer (sans legislative dirty bombs, please), if the Koch defection wasn’t enough of a push.

It’s not all roses for Obama – but of course, he isn’t ever going to run for office again, whereas Republicans are. Thirty percent strongly approve of the way Obama is performing as president and 37% strongly disapprove. Rasmussen notes,“This gives him a Presidential Approval Index rating of -7.” Or it means that among the extremists in both parties, conservative Republicans currently hate Obama (no news there) more than Democrats or liberals approve. This is a daily tracking poll, so it makes sense that conservatives are especially angry whereas liberals are worried about what Obama will concede.

Ooooooo I so want to be "Popular" like all the other Demokrat Children that are stuck in Junior High, at age 30.

I seek "Approval" and from this "Approval" I then have value and my childlike world view is validated by the Collective Mob....I am "Approved" then.

And we allow these people a vote!

6 months ago, Obama had a 51 percent approval rating. His current rating has dropped to 37 percent. And it continues to drop on a daily basis.
Reading comprehension is not one of your fortes, I see.

Obama's approval rating by the Republicans-biased Rasmussen Polls is not at 51%, which means it's really around 55%.

At the same time, the approval rating of Republicans in Congress has fallen to its lowest level ever - 24%. The Teas Party's rating is even lower than that and dropping like a rock.

The Republicans just handed the 2014 elections to the Democrats on a silver platter. I can't imagine more incompetent leadership.

The right wing extremists are strangely silent on this.
