Obama Up, GOP Down Post Election


A look at the latest survey numbers could spell trouble for a Republican Party that came out singing Kumbaya after the November elections, as Democrats, including the one in the White House continued to stay on the offensive.

Obama’s overall approval rating now sits at 50 percent.

A look at the trending numbers puts that as a seven to 10 point increase over the October to November time frame, when he was averaging between 40 and 43 percent.

Meanwhile, the GOP peaked at 44 percent precisely at election time, when they were the most combative. They’ve since lost six points and now sit down at 38 percent.

Those numbers appear to indicate the public views the GOP more favorably when it’s fighting — or at least talking about fighting — for what it claims to believe in, instead of simply rolling over for Obama and his fellow Democrats.
