    Obama Approval Rating Sees Bump In Florida

    Buyer's remorse or backlash from the Ryan budget. Either way, this is good news for Obama.

    Obama Approval Rating Sees Bump In Florida: Poll

    TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- A new poll gives President Barack Obama a bump in Florida after the killing of al-Qaida leader Osama bin Laden.

    The Quinnipiac University poll released Thursday shows voters approve of Obama's job performance by 51 percent to 43 percent. That's a turnaround from a 52 percent to 44 percent negative rating in a poll on April 7.

    Florida voters also prefer the Democratic president 44 percent to 37 percent when matched against an unnamed Republican.

    In April, Obama trailed 41 percent to 38 percent.

    The poll also shows Democratic U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson far ahead of three potential Republican challengers

    No worries, it'll drop again. Obama is too arrogant to hold on to this ever so slight bump. I would have thought it would have been more....Ah well, any straw in a sinking ship.

    Let's break down what you have said here. Obama is "too arrogant" to hold down approval ratings. What does that mean?

    Also why would you have thought this would have been more?
    "We’re going to close the unproductive tax loopholes that allow some of the truly wealthy to avoid paying their fair share. In theory, some of those loopholes were understandable, but in practice they sometimes made it possible for millionaires to pay nothing, while a bus driver was paying ten percent of his salary, and that’s crazy." -Reagan
