Pres. Obama Job Approval # Spikes After House GOP Fiasco

Obama enjoys highest approval rating since July 2011 –> A week after the House GOP decided it might not be a good idea after all to raise taxes on 160 million people we see a spike in President Obama’s approvals.  Dumb politics mixed with dubious policy may be what is behind the President’s suddenly improved approvals. But might it also have something to do with the public’s increasingly close up view of the GOP presidential field?  With the Iowa Caucuses on January 3rd, Herman Cain’s drop out and devastating ads running against frontrunner-for-5-minutes Newt Gingrich, President Obama may be enjoying the “only adult” status seen in earlier times of his presidency.  Forty-eight may not seem all that high, but in a year of unemployment and chaotic political battles I’ll bet the White House will take it and run.
