    Default AP-Gfk poll: Obama approval hits 60 percent

    WASHINGTON -- President Barack Obama's approval rating has hit its highest point in two years -- 60 percent -- and more than half of Americans now say he deserves to be re-elected, according to an Associated Press-GfK poll taken after U.S. forces killed al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

    In worrisome signs for Republicans, the president's standing improved not just on foreign policy but also on the economy, and independent Americans -- a key voting bloc in the November 2012 presidential election -- caused the overall uptick in support by sliding back to Obama after fleeing for much of the past two years.

    Comfortable majorities of the public now call Obama a strong leader who will keep America safe. Nearly three-fourths -- 73 percent -- also now say they are confident that Obama can effectively handle terrorist threats. And he improved his standing on Afghanistan, Iraq and the United States' relationships with other countries.
    Despite a sluggish recovery from the Great Recession, 52 percent of Americans now approve of Obama's stewardship of the economy, giving him his best rating on that issue since the early days of his presidency; 52 percent also now like how he's handling the nation's stubbornly high 9 percent unemployment.

    The real news is the economy is in the toilet. Unemployment the highest since the great depression, gas prices nearing $5.00 a gallon. Keep doing what your doing Roger can lead to blindness. Your poll numbers are also strange. Todays Rasmussen Poll shows Obongolo approval rating at 48% and disapproval at 51%. Typical of all your postings.

    Rogers people must be polling Roger and his family and the presidents staff over and over to get to 60%.

    Edit: Just heard that this poll of Roger's Polled 46% dems (est) 26% Reps (est) and a small number of independents.

    It's wishful thinking on the part of a messiah worshipper. Obongolo's out on the campaign trail every day and the economy sinks lower. He's almost frantic with his BS speeches. I saw one on TV this morning and nobody could understand what he was talking about. Maybe its his Kenyan accent.

    I did like his idea about a moat filled with alligators though. When can we start digging?

    A Rasmussen poll of 3500 likely voters conducted May 2-5, showed 45% would vote to reelect Obama while 43% would vote for a Generic Republican. Even with his bin Laden bounce, he can barely beat an undetermined Republican.

    His Rasmussen approval rating, which enjoyed brief improvement, has already started to head southward again.

    Wonder what would happen if the GOP had someone worth a flip running?
