    This needs more options. I approve of his handling of some issues and disapprove of his handling of other issues.

    Re: Our own Obama approval rating

    Interesting

    Currently 36% approve and 51% disapprove. Site membership statistics say that (out of people who identified as either liberal, conservative or independent) 33% are conservative and 27% are liberal. Gallup reports that 53% approve and 39% disapprove, and that party affiliation (I know, I know, conservative != republican) in the us breaks down as 26% republican 33% democrat. So, all in all, our opinions match America at large, but the political leaning is flipped

    ?? It seems like the approval/disapproval is also flipped.

    More options? You either approve, disapprove, or neither. It's what you think of the job he's done as a whole.

    Maybe she approves or disapproves of most things, but approves or disapproves of major things? I could see finding yourself approving of many things Obama is doing, yet finding major problems with a couple major initiatives. Or, approving of a couple major things, while disapproving of most other things. It could make deciding which camp to come down in tricky.

    Re: Our own Obama approval rating

    I dont agree with Obama on many things, but he seems to be trying his best. I wouldnt say I aprove of him, but he is doing well enough. I have mixed feelings, lets see in 2-3 years what happens.

    His recent faux pas with the speaking out against the Harvard police really threw me for a loop. I can't believe that he would make such a rookie mistake at the level he's attained. It makes me wonder about his other skills if he so easily makes such a blatant error.
    I can believe it. He was a freshman senator from Illinois, and was a community organizer prior to that. That is not a lot of experience for holding the highest Executive office in America.

    Yeah, but plenty of folks who've never held public office recognize how silly it was for him to get involved like he did. It's odd that he didn't stop and realize how bad of an idea it was.

    I approve of some things, disapprove of other things. Overall, I'm still withholding judgement. However, I would say that I neither wholeheartedly approve nor disapprove.

    Eh, you're right. But people do tend to change when they've got a reporter and a camera staring them in the face. (Queue NASCAR/NFL fans)
