Dam&, I hate it when I'm sooooo right.
UTICA, NY - A March 20-23 Zogby Interactive survey shows 45% of likely voters believe the nation is headed in the right direction, a gain of five points from a similar survey completed on March 5. At the beginning of the year, only 14% held that positive view.
However, President Barack Obama's ratings for job performance and favorability did not improve over earlier this month. In the most recent survey, 49% rate his job performance as excellent or good and 50% as fair or poor (less than 1% were not sure.) That is a dip of three points from the previous poll.
Ok, granted, I was somewhat skeptical myself that his poll numbers would dip below 50% by months end and the gold standard, Rasmussen, still has him at 55% but what the hey, if the MSM can cherry pick....
