Is Barack Obama the most popular black man in the history of the United States?

Barack Obama presumably has higher name recognition.

Today's Gallup Tracking:

Confidence in Obama

69% Confident
22% Not Confident

Obama Favorable Rating

73% Favorable
17% Unfavorable

Both indicators are the best yet since they started measuring them after the election. I´m interested in Rasmussen's numbers, when they start updating them again on Sunday ...

A 50-state hypothetical 2012 Obama vs. Palin map would be hilarious right now.

That's a luxury of the past.

I doubt that SurveyUSA could even do a 10-state poll right now because of the economic meltdown ... Wink

Rasmussen's Daily Tracking is back after a 2-week break:

"The Rasmussen Reports Daily Presidential Approval Index for Sunday, January 4, shows that Barack Obama is starting off the New Year with his highest ratings since winning the election two months ago.

Forty-three percent (43%) of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way Obama is handling the role of President-elect while 14% Strongly Disapprove.

Those figures give Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +29, his highest level to date.

Overall, 69% of voters somewhat or strongly approve of Obama’s performance so far while 28% disapprove."

Rasmussen: 66% approve, 32% disapprove (-3, +4 since Jan. 4)
Gallup: 63% confident, 26% not confident (-7, +3 since Jan. 4)

I've noticed in the past that all politicians, even those in Europe, tend to have higher approval ratings around the holidays (from about two weeks before Christmas until a week after New Year's) than the rest of the year. Presumably there is latent good will during that time which inflates everyone's numbers.

That's probably true. The new Austrian government was sworn in in early December and is now enjoying high approval ratings as well. Will be interesting to see if it falls. But I think it's only natural that people have higher approvals during Christmas, because for 2-3 weeks there's nothing about these politicians in the news ...

BTW:

In the latest NBC/WSJ poll, Obama gets a 71-14 approval rating, while Bush gets a 27-67 rating. The poll also has updated favorable ratings for people like Bill and Hillary Clinton.

Interesting question:

When it comes to the presidency of Barack Obama, will you strongly relate to him as your president, somewhat relate to him as your president, relate to him only a little as your president, or not really relate to him as your president?

88% will relate to him
8% will not relate to him

He's officially in office now, so it's time to bring on the 2012 polling, if only for laughs.

An african american vs. hispanic riff has been long-founded, just as you see the racism riff in areas of Alabama, Kentucky, ect. Obama is not as good a candidate for Hispanics as McCain is.

Agreed. I, as a proud Latino, decided to support John McCain (only because of how terrible Obama was/is).

But was it because you don't like Blacks due to tensions between that community and yours, as naso implies, or was it due to your preference of Mccain's policies to Obama's? I somehow doubt it was the former and this is why Obama got such a high percentage amongst latinos (most aren't conservative like you).

Worth looking at a year later:

48% Favorable
   

51% Unfavorable

http://www.rasmussenreports.com/public_content/politics/obama_administration/obama_approval_index_history

And a number of the same posters are watching in awe a conservative Republican at least coming close taking the seat held by Ted Kennedy.
