For the first time since last July, Obama is above water again on the RCP average:

48% Approve
47% Disapprove

http://www.realclearpolitics.com/epolls/other/president_obama_job_approval-1044.html

Rasmussen is back up to 50-48 today (incl. a 49-42 Obama lead over Romney and a 50-38 lead over Paul, but I guess they meant Gingrich not Paul ...)

Washington Post/ABC has Obama at 50-47 approval.

Rasmussen also says Obama's approval is 41-56 in Arizona:

I don't think they polled GE matchups there ... Sad

I think that this major bump has more to do with the nature of RCP's rolling average than any legitimate external factor.

Agreed. This probably reflects improvement in Obama's numbers over a period of a couple of weeks or so, not a couple of days.

I vastly prefer TPM's Poll Tracker to RCP's average. It's the same concept, but a lot less sensitive, so less prone to exciting and misleading drops and surges.

You can clearly see that Obama's been slowly but surely improving - the gap between approve and disapprove peaked in September of last year, and since then there's been a steady rise in approval and fall in disapproval.

Good economic news bounce must be here. Time for Obama to start putting out the positive ads, he needs to start early.

While I doubt that the 'Halftime in America' ad was meant to be seen as such (partly because while Clint Eastwood's politics may be many things, some of them admirable, conventional American liberalism has never seemed to be one of them), there may be something to the idea that it's having this sort of effect.

It could be that within a few years conservatism will reappear vastly different from what it is now. The contemporary Right that has absorbed demagoguery and irrationality may be on its way out.

Obama is more likely to tread water around ~49-52%, with a few blips in either direction, than start going downhill again unless the economy gets shot to Hell again (or become as popular as he was at the start of his term, for that matter). He's such a known quantity that 'spin' around him is pretty much pointless at this point, and campaignwise he can give as much as he can get, in terms of money and organization. Expecting him to improve much beyond a few points above water is also ridiculous, though.
