    This is the first time in six PPP surveys of Ohio since June 2009 that Obama's had more voters approving of him than disapproving. In December 42% of voters expressed approval of him while 49% disapproved. The key to his improved standing is that the base has rallied around him. Where only 71% of Democrats expressed approval of him on that poll, 84% of Democrats do now. The first couple years of the Obama administration featured a lot of Democrats fighting with each other- now that they've sort of unified around a common enemy in the form of John Kasich it seems to be leading to a more united party up and down the line

      Depending on what caused Democrats to be fighting. If it takes the Republicans wholesale-wrecking society to unite Democrats, maybe there's something about our side that needs changing.

      I guess they realize that the car that obama got out the ditch from republicans last time wasn't completely finished with repairs. So instead of letting obama finishing fixing the car up for them to drive again, they gave the keys back to the drunks and now realize it was mistake and now the car is back in the ditch again and now want to give the keys back to obama and the democrats.
