AP: An AP-GfK poll published Wednesday shows President Obama with his highest approval numbers in about 10 months …. according to the poll, 53 percent of those surveyed said they approve of the way Obama’s handling his job …. The last time Obama saw that level of approval in the poll was about 10 months ago, in March, when his approval rating dipped just below 50 percent but stayed mostly in the upper-40s … Obama saw the most significant improvement in his rating for handling the economy and Afghanistan, which both went up 6 points since November … The survey of 1,001 people between Jan. 5-10 has a 4.2-point margin of error.

    I have always understood PBO’s philosophy. He believes that hard work that yields positive results will eventually be recognized by those who matter to him the most–the citizens. The right, frustrati, and the PL seem to have never understood this because they keep attacking him and thinking that it is a way to bring about change. They don’t realize that they don’t matter because none of them have lifted a finger to help accomplish/change anything.
