Hope floats

The hope represented by more Americans seeing this President for what he is:

The Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Tracking Poll for Saturday shows that 24% of the nation’s voters Strongly Approve of the way that Barack Obama is performing his role as president. Forty-five percent (45%) Strongly Disapprove, giving Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of -21 (see trends).

The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve. It is updated daily at 9:30 a.m. Eastern (sign up for free daily e-mail update). Updates are also available on Twitter and Facebook.

Overall, 42% of voters say they at least somewhat approve of the president’s performance. This matches the lowest approval rating yet measured for President Obama. Fifty-six percent (56%) now disapprove.

I can’t help but focus however on the 24% who strongly approve.  What exactly are they approving of?  On what basis are they claiming that the man is doing a good job?  What are their standards?

What are they smoking?

Brief, bright and relevant
