Obama just helped make a deal in India that will create 50,000 jobs in the U.S., on his visit that is most definitely not costing 200 million dollars a day as the usual right wing echochamber has been kicking around.

First putting his shoes up on the White House desk, now dancing while on an official business trip. What else will this Muslim do to disrespect the office of the POTUS?

Obama is a wonderful person and a man of the world. Unfortunately for him, a large number of Americans seem to think that's a dirty thing. EXCEPTIONALISM!!!

WASHINGTON (CNN) – As Barack Obama marks his 100th day in office, an average of the most recent national polls indicates that more than six in ten Americans approve of the job Obama's doing as president.

According to a CNN Poll of Polls compiled early Wednesday, 63 percent say they approve of how Obama's handling his duties as president. Twenty nine percent disapprove. The 63 percent figure is down three points from CNN's previous Poll of Polls, which was compiled Sunday.

The president's approval rating stood at 64 percent in a CNN poll of polls in January, just after his inauguration

"The number of Americans who think Obama has the right personal qualities to be president has gone up since the campaign last fall," says CNN Polling Director Keating Holland. "That wasn't true for George W. Bush eight years ago, and it may be one reason why Obama's approval rating is still in the 60s."

So how does Obama compare to his predecessors in the White House around the first 100 days mark?

George W. Bush stood at 62 percent in a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll in April 2001, Bill Clinton was at 55 percent in a CNN/USA Today/Gallup poll in April 1993, George H.W. Bush stood at 58 percent in a Gallup poll from April 1989, and Ronald Reagan was at 67 percent in a Gallup poll taken in April 1981.

"The hundred-day mark tends to fall during a period when Americans are still evaluating a new president. The danger period for most presidents comes later in their first year in office," Holland says. "Bill Clinton, for example, still had good marks after his first hundred days, but his approval rating had tanked by June of 1993. Ronald Reagan's approval rating stayed over 50 percent until November of his first year in office, but once it slipped below that mark, it stayed under 50 percent for two years. So Obama's current rating certainly does not indicate that he is out of the woods yet."

The most recent edition of the CNN Poll of Polls is an average of seven national surveys taken over the past week: CNN/Opinion Research Corporation (April 23-26), ABC/Washington Post (April 21-24), Fox/Opinion Dynamics (April 22-23), CBS/New York Times (April 22-26), Marist (April 21-23), Quinnipiac (April 21-27) and the Gallup tracking poll (April 25-27).

The Poll of Polls does not have a sampling error.

Since the study is from this week, the more positive recent economic figures may have a significant part to play.

Mistake presumably. Sometimes old stuff crops up on aggregator sites for no apparent reason. No big deal.

It was supposed to be this one from 11/1-11/7-it was just a mistake . I would guess that would just be assumed but whatever..can't find the whole thing now, don't care anyway
