People were just praising it when Obama was up.

But, as I say:  If you don't like the Gallup numbers, just wait a few days.  Smiley

The Gallup weekly numbers are more important and they are more important for historical comparison.

I ignore Gallup, and have done since they recorded a swing of something like 16% in a week... which, without extraordinary events, is just rubbish...

IBOPE Zogby Poll: Obama Approval and National Direction Continue Improvement

The IBOPE Zogby interactive poll of likely voters conducted from January 27-30 also finds Obama’s job approval at 46%, the highest since June 2011. The percentage saying Obama deserves re-election is 41%, which is slightly more than it has been over the past few months, but eight points more than its low of 33% in September, 2011.
Favorable ratings for each are as follows: Obama 48%, Rick Santorum 39%, Mitt Romney 37%, Ron Paul 37% and Newt Gingrich 32%.
While a majority of voters still say the nation is “on the wrong track” (59%), this is the lowest such total since May 2011. The number saying the nation is headed in the right direction is now 33%.

It has not been that high, but there is a lot of instability in its daily numbers.  The total range in its weekly numbers has been six points over the last six months; that is not a huge swing.

I like Gallup because it has a long historic record that is useful for comparison.  I prefer the Rasmussen daily numbers (which is ironic since Obama is up with the 'bots today).

President Barack Obama's approval in Indiana stood at 42 percent, and disapproval at 55 percent; wicked numbers for any incumbent.

Obama trailed probable (er, possible) Republican nominee Mitt Romney by just 4 percent

2 polls:

Approval rating is from December and conducted by POS, a Republican pollster.

The GE poll is part of an internal for a Democratic Senate candidate.

Not what I mean, I'm talking about the back and forward over the course of the week... and that has been excess of 10% many times.

It might be useful for comparison, I just find it too unstable to be a reliable indicator.

I don't think Gallup pushes people as hard to make a decision as the Rasmussen bot does.  Their numbers are probably pretty much the same, but more leaners are no opinion in Gallup.

Probably a bad sample is moving through.
