President Obama’s Approval Rating Swells To A 19 Month High In Gallup Poll


Even Gallup’s polling is showing President Obama’s growing momentum. According to the Gallup Daily Tracking poll, President Obama’s job approval rating has risen to a nineteen month high. By margin of 50%-45%, those surveyed approve of the job that President Obama is doing.

Obama Job Approval Rating Gallup

Ten days ago, more Americans approved than disapproved of the president for the first time since 2013. The latest Gallup poll is Obama’s first 50% approval rating in the Gallup poll since June of 2013. Last week’s ABC News/Washington Post poll revealed that the president’s job approval rating had increased by nine points in a month. The ABC News poll found that the positive changes in the president’s job approval rating were directly related to the economy. The ABC poll found the highest level of approval of the economy since 2007.

Senate Majority Leader Mitch McConnell is openly complaining that Obama is ignoring the results of the midterm election, but the polling is evidence that the White House is correct to ignore the election. Obama has gotten more popular since he began taking executive action and going on the offensive after the election. President Obama’s State Of The Union address has also helped his standing with the public.

The president is countering many of the unpopular positions of congressional Republicans by standing up for the middle class, workers, Hispanics, and more benefits for families. Obama has taken control of the national agenda and put Republicans on the defensive. The polling demonstrates that the more aggressive agenda setting coming from the White House is popular with many Americans.

Obama is enjoying a late in his presidency resurgence. America is moving on from the dark years of war and recession, and President Obama is finally getting appreciation for his years of work on behalf of the country.

  1. If the country elects a Republican President next President Obama’s approval rating would soar. People don’t know what a good thing they have until it is gone.

  2. Republicans are good with their propaganda,they are good at lieing!!The American people are not good at remembering the facts.Republicans don’t care who they hurt in order to keep power & their pockets lined!!!!BUT they should know what goes around comes around ! Thank GOD FOR PRESIDENT OBAMA…….

  3. The people that voted for the GOP basically voted to be stripped of their wealth and rights and give it to the GOP and corporations. McConnell knows this, that’s why he is whining.

  4. If you really want to see his ratings go up, let him continue to expose the GOP for what they really are and have the Dems support him fully.

  5. Hey, go to World Net Daily or Red State. They’re certain Obama is going to declare martial law and cancel the elections in ’16, so you won’t even have to vote for him. He’ll be dictator for life!

    You’re probably familiar with the Ronald Reagan Legacy Project, an effort launched by veteran right-wing activist Grover Norquist nearly twenty years ago to promote, in perpetuity, the idea that Reagan was the modern-day equivalent of the Founding Fathers. (I first heard about this project in early-2007, when then-Massachusetts Governor Deval Patrick rejected Norquist’s call to issue a proclamation naming February 6 “Ronald Reagan Day” in the Bay State).

    Those who endlessly promote Reagan’s “accomplishments” argue that they have to do so because progressives have a vested interest in tearing Reagan’s legacy down. (Of course, what they don’t acknowledge is that there’s so much to tear down!) The right’s argument is pure projection. In reality, it is progressives who must go the extra mile in defending the legacy of Barack Obama.

  7. Reagan’s legacy has been set, and it is not kind to him. There is nothing Norquist can do to change that.
