    "...Americans said they approved of Mr. Obama’s handling of the economy, foreign policy, Iraq and Afghanistan; fully two-thirds said they approved of his overall job performance.

    By contrast, just 31 percent of respondents said they had a favorable view of the Republican Party, the lowest in the 25 years the question has been asked in New York Times/CBS News polls. ..."

    jprichva saidIn related news, a new poll reveals that 31% of the country has lost their fucking minds.

    It is amazing that after this train wreck of the economy that 31% still dont get it.

    Polls are what politicans pay attention to, but the real proof in the pudding is still to come.

    George Soros, an Obama supporter, gave an interesting article to Bloomberg News recently. Here is the excerpt. He thinks the current stock market rally will not last.

    this is good news !!! While polls don't tell the whole story by any means, the positivity the general public is feeling and expressing can and does have a self perpetuating positive effect on the economy. The more positive that's put out there the more likely the public will feel better about things and spend some, ever increasing the good economic signs. for the life of me, i cannot understand why the repug leaders are trying so hard to be negative, they are actually acting out on their "hopes" for Obama "failure". they are defeating themselves, yet they still don't get it. Recall back a few weeks ago when the markets kept going down, they were hollering about Obama's bad market, now that its up and has stayed for a while, there sure aren't any of them giving him credit, but I read where some repugs thought Bush should get some credit for the uptick in the markets. LOL !!!!

    excellent sentiments, for instance in this last week's rally, we've had speculators come bottom-fishing based on some of these articles. we kept our fees at 2/20 and basically pushed similar securities, just different names. gotta love short-term memory, and a sanguine middle america.

    lack of learn, is our earn.
