Obama's Approval Rating Soars To Its Highest Point In More Than Three Years

President Barack Obama's approval rating in Rasmussen's daily poll today hit 54%, its highest point in more than three years in the firm's daily tracking.

The high mark comes in the aftermath of Obama's re-election last week. It's Obama's best approval rating since July 1, 2009, after which the rating began steadily declining. Rasmussen also found that 47% of unaffiliated voters now approve of the president.

During the presidential campaign, Obama hit the same 54% mark in Gallup's rolling three-day average.

Obama has climbed a significant 10 points since just June, when a still-battered and bruised economy left the incumbent on the ropes against Republican challenger Mitt Romney. Obama's approval waffled around the "safe" 50% level for the last month of the campaign before finally reaching the mark steadily during the last week.

     I'm confused...what exactly did he do to earn an increased approval rating? Get re-elected?

    Wouldn't that be the equivalent of getting a raise for showing up to work?

    A 54% approval rate is "soaring"? When pretty much half the country thinks you are doing a crappy job? When I was in school, 54% was an F.

    Why?  What happened overnight, or in the last couple days?  Oh, yeah, nearly every state in the union wants to secede!!  I think that is something that Obama can certainly be proud of, and I would say that he did that all by himself!

    The states are not wanting to secede.  A few scattered unpatriotic assholes in a handful of states wants to secede.  Huge difference.
