Obama's popularity is increasing. Do you think the increase is real or are pollsters wrong agains?
I believe his popularity is based on Obama as a person and not Obama's policies. The same poll has a vast majority of people believing the country is moving in the wrong direction. That poll is more telling.
Obama wants a sloppy, sentimental, send off. He was a huge failure as president and on the way out he continues bad judgement by these pardons. Some are BAD people. Good riddance to bad rubbish!
Bad polls like the ones that predicted a Hillary landslide.
He's popular because people are so happy one month and counting!
I know I am 😄
It just what happen when reality sets in. You see more clearly.
Reality is setting in: he did good work and the new guy is going to to fükk us all.
Suppressed ... not reality, sympathetic questions for the pathetic loser-in-chief. We are SO lucky we dodged the Clinton fiasco, giving the country the chance to heal!
Best guess: Since he's got one foot out the door and most eyes are on the incoming President, people are now judging Obama on his personality rather than by his policies, and he's got much better personality than policies.
I think a lot ppl are getting excited that he'll be gone in a month.
That doesn't make any sense. Why would excitement of him leaving cause people to like him more? Your logic is flawed.
What's changed in their measurement techniques?
Answer: nothing. It's the same measurement that was made a year ago,that was made 5 years ago, that was made 10 years ago.
It's due to Democratic appreciation who can't stand Trump coming and unite under Obama even if they'd disagreed with him on many issues.
It's just part of the left's campaign to try to make Trump look bad in comparison. That's ridiculous, because Obama is clearly the worst president in US history.
Trump doesn't need ANYONE'S help to look bad. He does that all by himself. Bigly. I'm telling you, nobody does it better than him. It is unpresidented how well he does it.
You must not look into history very often.
Oh contrare. In the 30+ yrs I have known of Trump, he has never ceased to be a self-serving egomaniac jackass. I've been paying attention. He doesn't need help looking bad.
My comment was in response to Laney's claim that Obama is the worst president the United States has ever had.
Oh, I'll stand by that claim. He ranks among the five worst:
If Hillary had been inaugurated, ahe would have automatically become #45.
Absolutely true, Tom, BO is the worst president in my lifetime. It will take us years, if not decades to recover from the damage he has done.
FDR? The guy that got us through the Great Depression and WW2? What about Bush, the guy that cost us a trillion dollars?
FDR created a lot of problems. W. Bush was a great president. Uh oh *TRIGGERED*
What about Harding, he did less than nothing in office and was plagued by scandal
You people are blinded by your politics. It's a wonder how you are been able to function!
"Great president" cost us a trillion dollars
He's in my top five too
I'm sure he's popular, but a lot of his policies and actions aren't all around well supported.
