    The overnight poll, conducted by The Washington Post and the Pew Research Center, found that 56 percent of respondents approve of Obama’s performance as president, up nine points from similar polls last month. That boost includes a substantial bump of 10 points among independents

    In the Post-Pew poll, 69 percent of respondents said that they approve of Obama’s handling of the threat of terrorism, the highest rating since he became president in 2009. And more than three-quarters of Americans believe that Obama deserves credit for bin Laden’s death, with 35 percent saying he should get “a great deal” of credit for the terrorist leader’s killing.

    I give it two weeks tops before he's in the ditch again. People will not be thinking about bin laden when they are trying to pay their bills.

    I did. I am not really sure they conduct polls. I expect they just walk around the news room and ask the reporters.

    Roger,
    As soon as people go to the gas station or the grocery store the polls will flip back.
    Sure, everyone is very happy OBL is dead. That doesn't give an unemployed person a job. It doesn't stop the upward trend of gas or grocery prices.

    According to Rasmussen today, Obama has not gotten any bump in his approval ratings. In fact, they gone down since May 1st.

    Real Clear Politics Poll (From Today's Fox News Website)

    Job Approval Approve Disapproval

    Obama........ 50.6%...... 43.4 %

    Congress..... 20.3%...... 73.5%

    Tea Party

    The poll shows 47 percent of those surveyed now hold unfavorable views of the tea party while just 33 percent see the movement in a favorable light. That is a seven percent increase in unfavorable ratings and six percent drop in favorable since the Gallup last surveyed American opinion on the tea party in January.
    Only 30 percent of independents — the voter bloc crucial for elections — now favor the tea party. The tea party does best with older men with limited education while 57 percent of older women older women now oppose the movement.

    WTC comes down on Bush's watch but somehow it is Clinton's fault. Obama signs a order making OBL the highest national security priority. Two years later he is taken out on his watch, but somehow Obama gets no credit, Bush does. My, my, my it is truely remarkable how some minds work.

    Question for you;

    Are you saying that you approve of unilaterraly (no UN or NATO) entering a sovereign country secretly and executing an unarmed foreign leader?
