Obama approval ratings going up, not down

This can't be true. According to all the yahoos on the forum, O is the worst president ever and has done so much harm to our country and the world. Please someone explain this to me. And while you are at it, please explain how his approval ratings are in the 80-90% range in most countries we consider allies?

------------

After three months on the job, President Obama continues to be widely popular.

That is according to a new poll released today by Gallup that shows Obama's approval rating at 65%.

President Obama's approval rating has stayed relatively consistent -- and high -- since he was sworn into office in January. He started out with a 66% rating and dropped temporarily to 62% in March.

That puts Obama into a select group of presidents whose approval ratings have increased from February to May of their first year in office.

Since World War II, only three first-term presidents -- Dwight Eisenhower, John Kennedy, and Ronald Reagan -- have had a higher average approval rating in May of their first year.

In recent years, declining approval ratings have been the standard. George W. Bush's rating dropped four points from February to May, and Bill Clinton's dropped nine.
