Obama's Approval Ratings Through the Roof! Proving Spread of Disease of Liberalism

Original post made by Wither America?, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, on Feb 20, 2013

As President Obama faces a tough showdown with congressional Republicans over the looming sequestration cuts, a new poll shows the commander-in-chief with his highest approval rating in over three years.

A Bloomberg National poll released Wednesday found that 55 percent of Americans approve of Obama's performance, his highest rating in the poll since September 2009.

Additionally, the Bloomberg poll found Republican popularity at a record low. Just 35 percent of respondents said they have a favorable view of the GOP, marking the lowest ratings for the party since the poll began three years ago. The Republican rating also marked a six point drop over the last six months.

The poll surveyed 1,003 adults between February 15 and February 18, with a three percent margin of error.

Obama's popularity has been on an upward trend in the months since his reelection. A Washington Post/ABC News poll conducted last month found that 60 percent of respondents had a favorable view of the president. In December, a CBS poll showed Obama's strongest numbers since the death of Osama Bin Laden in May 2011.

Yes, Pos Obama refuses to believe polls like Bloomberg, Pew, USA Today, ABC/WaPo, CBS, and others. Instead, he chooses to believe Rasmussen and other bought off right-wing hacks who had Romney winning the popular vote by 4 points. And how did that work out for you guys? Still waiting for the networks to call Ohio for Romneybot?

Don't miss out on the discussion!
