A new Gallup poll finds President Obama’s favorable rating at 58%, his best in over three years.
He was more popular after his first election than he is now, with a 68% favorable rating just after the November 2008 election. His all-time high of 78% was measured shortly before his inauguration as president in January 2009.
Meanwhile, The Week notes losing “is never a great way to increase your popularity. But to an unusually vocal degree, Republicans are going out of their way to show Romney the door.”
