Of the two days Obama has been president so far, I really could not approve more. I was very worried that he'd start triangulating and backtracking right out of the gate; so far, it seems like he's sticking to his promises, and then some.

I couldn't agree more.  Closing Guantanamo and all secret prisons was an excellent first move.  What needs to be done now is prosecute those who were responsible for the atrocities that took place there.
Making healthcare reform a priority is another thing I approve of.

According to Gallup, Obama starts with a 68-12 approval rating (Jan. 21-23).

That's better than Clinton (58-20) and Bush (57-25) and comparable with Eisenhower (68-7), Kennedy (72-6) and Carter (66-8).

Not so good over at Rasmussen, however

Approve 61% (-1); strongly 44% (-1)

Disapprove 33% (+4); strongly 18% (+2)

Very strong numbers in Virginia.  It's interesting to see him at 41-38 among conservatives, and 47-34 among Evangelicals.  The only group that disapproves of him are Republicans, and even then it's only a -13, with 25% unsure.  He's actually above 50% with most groups, which is a good sign.  I'm a little surprised he's the same with men and women, though.

You're absolutely right.  Closing Guantanamo and allowing some already confirmed 60 or so terrorists back into their terrorist camps was a great idea.

Bravo Obama!  May he be President 4 Life!

You do realize that your heroes Hillary and McCain claim that they would also have closed it?

You're right, detaining people suspected of terrorism without a proper trial and making them live in horrible conditions is the way to go.

Rasmussen (25-01-2009):

60% Approve (-1)
36% Disapprove (+3)

Not surprisingly, partisan and ideological divides remain clear when it comes to evaluating the President. The number of political conservatives who Strongly Disapprove of Obama’s performance has increased from 29% on the morning of Inauguration Day to 38% today. Only 17% of conservatives Strongly Approve.

At the other extreme, 79% of liberal voters Strongly Approve of Obama’s performance to date while just 5% Strongly Disapprove.

On a partisan basis, the President earns a +68 rating from Democrats, a -23 rating from Republicans, and a +8 from those not affiliated with either major party. Among the unaffiliated voters, 32% Strongly Approve and 24% Strongly Disapprove.

Don't know really why there's such a big difference between the 2 institutes, but if SUSA showed Obama with a 60% approval rating in Alabama, I tend to trust Gallup more ...

And they use a different weighting model which brings it closer to the center. We all know how hackish I can be and the whole "Rasmussen is a Republican pollster" crap annoys even ME.

or that it won't actually be closed for a year and that nobody will be released as a direct result of it's closing?

Rasmussen (26-01-2009):

60% Approve (n/c)
37% Disapprove (+1)

Forty-six percent (46%) of women strongly approve along with 36% of men. Eighty-one percent (81%) of African-American voters Strongly Approve along with 37% of White voters. Among those who see the economy as the most important issue, 55% Strongly Approve.

At the same time, the President’s negatives have risen a bit since he assumed office and 20% now Strongly Disapprove of his performance. That stems largely from growing disapproval from conservatives. The higher negatives give Obama a Presidential Approval Index rating of +21, his lowest rating as President or President-elect since before Thanksgiving.

It`s about 65% right now if we average Rasmussen and Gallup and assign the Undecideds.

It`s probably not 70% because a few Conservatives who previously were undecided or mildly approving were scared away by Obama's abortion orders and big spending plans ...
