WASHINGTON (CNN) -- Despite the drop in President Obama's approval ratings, Republican policies are still not as popular as Democratic policies, according to a new national poll.
Fifty-two percent of people in CNN poll believe Barack Obama's policies will move country in right direction.
A CNN/Opinion Research Corporation survey released Friday morning indicates the GOP has gained some ground in polls in recent months, but Democrats still hold the advantage on key issues such as the economy and health care.
Fifty-two percent of people questioned say the president's policies will move the country in the right direction. An equal percentage feel the same way about the policies of the Democrats in Congress.
What do Americans think of Republican policies? Forty-three percent say the GOP's policies will move the country in the right direction. Nearly half of those polled said congressional Republicans would move the country in the wrong direction.
But the percentage of people who think Obama will move the country in the right direction has dropped 11 points since May, while congressional Democrats have seen a 5 point dip. Congressional Republicans have seen a 4 point rise over the same period.
Polls in recent weeks have shown Obama's approval rating in the mid-to-low 50s -- a significant drop from early summer, when most polls had his rating at 60 percent or higher.
I know polls don't mean much but I would think that with all the anti Obama effort from the Right Wing ala Rush, Savage, Coulter, Sean H., Reagan, and many others that the polls would be much different.
Angry old white men are eventually have to come to realize the fact that they are in the minority and just don't have the political or economic clout they once did. No matter how much they want it to be like the 50s, it just isn't!!
"Two-thirds of all Americans are angry at the way the government in Washington is working, and the Democrats get the brunt of that anger,"

The thing the Democrats have to worry about, though, is getting them to actually turn out on voting day. It worked in 2008, but were they electing a set of policies or were they electing a man? I think most everyone will say the latter much more than the former, which raises the question: Can the Democrats get the youth vote to turn out to vote for some obscure Congressman in 2010 in the numbers they did in 2008 in order to vote fo Obama?
