Speaking of Polls….

I found this at CBS.com:

Poll: 83% of Speech Watchers Aprove of Obama’s State of the Union Proposals

A large majority of Americans who watched President Obama’s State of the Union Address generally approve of the proposals he outlined in his speech, according to a CBS News Poll conducted online by Knowledge Networks immediately after the President’s address.

Of the randomly selected 522 speech viewers questioned by CBS, 83 percent said they approved of the proposals the President made. Just 17 percent disapproved — typical of the high support a president generally receives among those who choose to watch the State of the Union. In January 2002 — when George W. Bush gave the State of the Union Address a year into his presidency — 85% of speech watchers approved.

Now we need to see if he can get these proposals passed.  And as to  the blurb about GW Bush getting an 85% approval rating on their SOTU speech one should remember it was right after 9/11.  It is encouraging, after all the rhetoric of how bad the public views Obama’s policies after the loss of the Senate seat in Massachusetts that Obama still seems to enjoy widespread support.

Now he needs to get to work and make things happen.
