President Obama's second term approval ratings now higher than Clinton, Bush, or Reagan.

Courtesy of WAPT News:  

President Barack Obama's approval rating remains on the upswing, with 52 percent now approving of his performance as president, up a statistically insignificant one point since last month, but now five points above the 47 percent who approved in January. 

This survey marks the third straight CNN/ORC poll with majority approval for the president, and the fourth straight with a net-positive approval rating overall. 

The president's scores were last in negative territory in January. The improvement since then seems concentrated among political moderates, whose approval rating for Obama has climbed nine points to 62 percent while views among liberals and conservatives have largely held steady. 

It's not just Obama's approval ratings that are on the rise -- his favorability has also climbed and stands at 53 percent now, up from 48 percent in December. 

That figure means that at this stage of his presidency, Obama ranks as the most positively-viewed recent second term president. Both Bill Clinton and Ronald Reagan were viewed favorably by just under half of adults in the spring or summer of their final years in office, while George W. Bush's favorability rating stood at 38 percent in summer 2008. 

In terms of approval ratings, Obama's current rating outranks both Bush's mark (30 percent) and Reagan's approval rating (48 percent) at this point in their final year, and is just below Clinton's rating in June 2000 (55 percent).

The article goes on to say that Obama's high favorable ratings will also help Hillary in November.

Which of makes perfect sense, and why it was SO important to nominate a real Democrat for the general election.

This is not the time for a revolution. Revolutions are for when things are getting worse, not for when things are getting betters.

And thanks to President Obama, and future President Hillary Clinton, things are indeed getting better.

    A majority of the US population has a very short memory and have totally forgotten that state of this country when President Obama took over. For that first year alone, he deserves a 100% approval rating.

    His accomplishments as of late should secure him a place in history

    Protest votes and no votes is exactly what happened in Britain. And now they are all in shock.

    Get out and VOTE in November!
