    I probably qualify as left, but I define myself more as not being on the right.

    This jerk thinks so. Is MSNBC pushing violence? If this was said on fox it would be all over the MSM

    Polls tend tend to show when a major event happens people rally behind the President.

    MSNBC pushing violence? As in you're accusing it of being complicit in a leftist terror state? I think you read into it a bit far.
    As far as major events go, yes people would likely rally behind the prez. If it were a major terrorist attack people may hold Obama responsible in my eyes.

    Re: Will any near future presidents have high approval ratings?

    I think it will be possible. Barring some extrodinary circumstance, ala 9/11, I think its going to take a President who wins the Presidency by clearly articulating an actual platform and presenting himself honestly so that his win comes about from people voting for his actual policies and beliefs rather than perhaps voting against a party or voting for a persona or aura. If that happens and, once in power, they stick to what they ran on and remain politically in the same location they ran on then theoritically they should be able to turn a positive approval rating as you will not have jaded people jumping off the wagon. If said policies manage to cause positive things for the country then theoritically the approval rating should increase as people come around to the President simply based on the good situations.

    I think its possible, but not definite. But I'd say yes, within the next 20 years there should be a President who for the majority of his Presidency manages a high 50+% approval rating.

    While I suppose anything is possible, I find it unlikely, not because of partisanship, but because of the generally low quality of our politicians in this country. The overwhelming majority are political hacks, out to fulfill their own personal agenda and grab power, nobody goes into politics to serve the public good anymore.
    There is nothing demonstrably true that religion can provide the world that cannot be achieved more rationally through entirely secular means.

    The problem is with those who lean BACK, rather than FORWARD.
    Very few Americans are worthy of judging our President, so these polls should be assigned to the scrap heap.

    I only wish that this was not true, but it is ,in reality, all too true.
    But are the people that much better?
