Poll: Obama job approval rising, race still tight


Associated Press

WASHINGTON (AP) -- A new Associated Press-GfK poll finds that Americans are feeling markedly better about the country's future and about Barack Obama's job performance. That said, the president's re-election race against Republican Mitt Romney remains a neck-and-neck proposition.

Obama's approval rating is back above 50 percent for the first time since May. The AP-GfK poll also shows that the share of Americans who think the country is moving in the right direction is at its highest level since just after the death of Osama bin Laden in May 2011.

The poll shows that Romney has lost his pre-convention edge on the top issue of the campaign - the economy.

Obama is supported by 47 percent of likely voters and Romney by 46 percent, promising an all-out fight to the finish.

I did

use the word leader. The words "leader" and "orator" are not mutually exclusive. Do you not think the people I chose were great orators?


He does camp in front of Fox, his name on here links to it.

It does not.....

It does not surprise me that an AP poll finds Obama in the lead. He pretty much runs the press. People, please do no get fooled again...for the sake of our country.

Please turn off Fox News and

Please turn off Fox News and use your own brain...

What a joke...

How about turning off MSNBC, CNN and all the other left wing shows? Then and only then I will think about cutting off FOX.

Grand ole Party we meet

Grand ole Party we meet again... How's it going over at Chick-Fil-A? I hear they have turned a new leaf, and will no longer support christian organizations whose sole purpose is to blockade the advancement of the LBGT community. Are you going to line up around the business in support of them now?? Hey because it's "free speech" right? I watch all networks my friend. I watch fox news also, but unlike yourself I can think, and reason my own thoughts. I look at news from all angles... you sir have tunnel vision and the people at Fox love you for it.


Sorry John, once again you have been mislead. Nothing new for you sheep. Dan Cathy, CEO of Chick Fil-A stated TODAY that “There continues to be erroneous implications in the media that Chick-fil-A changed our practices and priorities in order to obtain permission for a new restaurant in Chicago. That is incorrect. Chick-fil-A made no such concessions, and we remain true to who we are and who we have been.” Feel stupid yet? Of course not, facts never seem to get in the way of your liberal drivel. The so called tunnel vision I have, is always based on facts, you should give it a try. Come back and try again later, this one didn't work out so well for ya. See ya at Chick Fil-A!!! Woot woot!!!

My friend, if you are

My friend, if you are Romney-backer, YOU are the one being fooled. What does it take for you to see what he (Romney) is all about and stands for?

Have some more Kool Aid Mr. GuestVader.

Here is a thought for

Here is a thought for everyone;

If you are a millionaire, vote for Rommney

If you are NOT a millionaire, vote to keep Obama another 4 years

Nuff said !

New story....
