Presidential Approval from this year


Obama Approval Slips Further in Fifth Quarter to 48.8%
Ranks among lowest fifth-quarter averages for elected presidents
April 20, 2010
President Barack Obama's 48.8% job approval average for his fifth quarter in office is down slightly from his prior quarter, and ranks among the lowest for elected presidents' fifth quarters since World War II.


From the same site, economy-



Economy
Federal Government Outpaces Private Sector in Job Creation
Both see more hiring than firing; the opposite is true in state and local governments
May 3, 2010
The federal government outpaced the private sector in hiring in April, though employees in both sectors currently report more hiring than firing. In sharp contrast, the jobs picture for state and local governments was negative, with firing more than twice as prevalent as hiring.




Inflation Worries Permeate U.S.
More than half (55%) say they are "very concerned" inflation will climb
May 3, 2010
Nearly all Americans today are concerned about inflation -- 55% are "very concerned" that inflation will climb, and another 29% are "somewhat concerned." Concern is greatest among lower-income Americans, Westerners, conservatives, and Republicans and independents.



Misoir, please post the time frame on your statistics.

I believe Obama's approval ratings have not been that good since the spring of 09.

Jeez.

Hopefully that was a mistake.
