Sensible people ignore the polls, after all the only one that matters is in 12 months’ time. But for the obsessive poll-watchers among us (err, me!) ….. the President has had a +9 point swing with Gallup this week (+14 in a month) – his approval is up 5 to 45 and his disapproval is down 4.
From the OFA blog: “I’m only 16 right now but I’ll be 18 by the time of the 2012 elections, and Mr. Obama will be the first President I vote for. I’m in because I know Mr. Obama is creating a better future for me and millions upon millions of other teenagers my age, and I cannot wait until I vote for him because I know I will be voting for the successful future of America.”
