So what is going to happen with the Obama approval rating after Osama Bin Laden has been killed on his command. There is no doubt that this will not be a negative factor from this finding so I wouldn’t be surprised if his rating went up. Foreign affairs is about the only bright spot that Obama has had in his ratings. Many people think that he has done this just to bring it up for the upcoming election.
In a recent polling foreign affairs rating was at 54 percent. Health care was at 41 percent and 39 percent for the economy. This was according to a CNN/Opinion Research Corporation national survey that was conducted in January. Either way I do not think this hail Mary pass is going to allow the Obama approval rating to be high enough that he will win the next election. What are your thoughts on the matter?
Even the Republications agree that there is going to be at least a temporary boost for the president. “In the short-term, yes. Yesterday was a great day for the nation and we are all rightly celebrating and politics isn’t, and shouldn’t, be a part of the equation,” Doug Heye, a GOP strategist and former communications Director for the Republican National Committee, tells CNN. We are just not sure how long this bounce will last.
