As you can see from the graph via Gallup, President Obama’s job approval numbers are at 54%, his disapprovals at 39%.
Considering the terrible, horrible, no good, very bad GOP dissension-slash-implosion and the landslide election win for Obama, it’s safe to say the president has some political capital left to spend on things like ending the war in Afghanistan,
immigration and education reform, climate change and addressing gun
violence, all stated goals on his second term agenda.
Of course, Republicans will continue to obstruct at every turn, but at least for now, President Obama has America on his side.
