‘obama surges to lead against generic republican’

TPM: Beset by debt ceiling woes, President Obama has been trailing behind a hypothetical “generic Republican” in recent polls. But no longer! The latest from Gallup has him moving into a solid lead.

According to the monthly survey, which was conducted from August 4-7, Obama would win 45-39 against “the Republican party’s candidate.” The previous two polls from Gallup had the generic GOPer running strong with a 47-39 lead in July and 44-39 lead in June.

Despite widespread anger at Washington over the last month’s debt ceiling negotiations and a week of brutal financial news, several polls this week have suggested that Obama and the Democratic brand are hanging tough for now. A look at Obama’s approval ratings across all 50 states released on Monday showed him gaining ground in a number of critical states since the Democrats’ disastrous midterm election. A CNN poll on Tuesday showed the Republican party more unpopular than ever in the wake of the debt ceiling fight while Democrats are holding steady.

Thank you Loriah 😉

CNN: On the eve of his State of the Union address, Barack Obama’s approval rating is at its highest level in more than a year, according to a new national poll……Fifty-five percent of people questioned in the poll say they approve of how Obama’s handling his duties in the White House, with 44 percent saying they disapprove.

“The 55 percent figure is seven points higher than in December and 13 points higher than his September mark,” says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. “The president’s approval rating has not been this high since November of 2009 in CNN polling.”
