    The NYT/CBS News poll besides giving Obama an approval rating of 66%, had some bad news for the GOP.. Only 31% have a favorable opinion of the party, with 58% disapproval. By contrast, the Democrats are at 56%-34%.

    Other results showed the outlook on the economy is brightening. ..39% said the country is headed in the right direction, up from 15% in mid January. That is the highest percentage of Americans who said the country was headed in the right direction since 42% said so in February 2005.

    All this of course is bad news for the leader of the GOP, Boss Limbaugh, Faux News and all the rest who want to see the country fail.

    Wonder why they didn't ask about the Democrats that control the House and Senate? Maybe, because their approval is still in the tank! But that wouldn't have made a clever little poll. If we are going to site polls on this site can we at least use independent polls, not polls from news organizations that have proven time and again to be majorly flawed.:rolleyes:

    Still hoping for the country to fail, huh?...here's more from the poll:

    Good...make the fat cats pay their fair share.



    How about a Pew Research Poll showing that only 24% identify themselves as Republicans. Or a 28% rating for GOP Congressional leaders.

    You guys are in sad shape.. presently completely irrelevant, totally out of power and your prospects look terrible. So, you resort to tea parties..how pathetic, but also extremely humorous for the rest of us. Keep it up!

    You poor, POOR little guy. Your ignorance about the tax schedules is just what one expects from your kind. I got news for you little boy, even after I pay more in taxes than you make in five years, I still have a lot left over. And you know what else? As a former Republican, I have no loyalty to ANY political party, as the have nots do for the party that was originally formed to ensure that slavery would endure in the south, another point I doubt that you know, I'm going to vote for whomever I want, regardless of party, and still be rich, and apparently a lot smarter and more capable than you.

    "Poll on" dude.

    Wow you need only read this to see the hatred for success, and that hatred for freedom that you guys love so much. Fat cats pay their fair share? The pay the bulk of the taxes as it is what are you talking about?

    The numbers don't lie, and it's public record why don't you do little leg work to verify it Popeye. My suggestion stop listening to the talking heads and start using your own. Research, Read, and educate yourself with facts from reliable sources. I'm not talking about news media (cnn, fox, msnbc) any of them, or the blogosphere (which is all opinion.)

    As far as hoping the country fails....I can't help but laugh. I have never said that nor has anyone else. But it's cute and your boy Chris Matthews would be proud. I do however hope the socialistic fail policies of the Obama administration fail miserably. The reason for that....Because that would be best for the country that I love, and the country I love to serve.

    Hitler was very very popular in Germany in his day and those Germans who thought he was a mistake were not a very popular bunch.

    Being popular does not make you right. Also, obama is less popular now than he has been

    RED HERRING ALERT!:D

    The fact is Congress almost ALWAYS has terrible poll numbers. Had terrible poll numbers under Bush when it was Republican.

    The fact is the folks in Congress are there representing local interests. And one places local interests is another places anti-Christ!:D

    The President on the other hand is a clear target to evaluate. President Bush was a bottom feeding low 20% range guy on his way out compared to say President Clinton that was in the mid to upper 60% positive job approval rating on his way out.

    Popeye hit the nail on the head... and it always amuses me when the Lunatic Fringe Right tries to make being approved of and popular a scary Halloween bad thing ooooooow!:D

    President Obama is popular at home and seeming loved all over the word. He's a kind caring family man. God bless him... that's a good thing for a change!

    Here is another poll for you to look at:

    Interesting for someone who was supposed to bring us all together.

    Once the US population understands the jobs aren't coming back, they will
    likely blame Obama and democrats. Because they are in charge
    and of course they created this economic mess.
    But time will tell, because so far native Americans seem confused.

    In fours years from now, it will be ugly, that's if the US
    even exists.

    More likely, once Obama is forced to raise taxes to cover this trillion dollar blowout, he approval will be somewhere in the dumpster outside the mass media buildings where suddenly polls are not important anymore.

    In that case then Popeye's original remark wasn't a real comparison at all, because by your claim congress always has low approval. So comparing Obama to Republicans in congress is of no use. Unless that is you are trying to alter public perception with a pointless poll????

    Another childish post. Do tell, why is an opinion poll bad news for people who want Obama to fail? I don't want the country to fail. No one wants the country to fail. I want Obama to fail.

    Moreover, economic policy doesn't succeed or fail, based on poll numbers. GM is not doing better right now, simply because your lame poll says things are improving.
