Yeah, you read that right. According to CNN, President Obama is now more popular now than he was two months ago. People think he's doing a better job.
So much for a presidency in disarray. In the aftermath of the GOP holding hearings with "Benghazi whistleblowers," the release of Benghazi talking points emails, the IRS scandal, and the AP phone records subpoena ... Obama isn't just unshaken, he's stronger than he was two months ago.
For Republicans, this wasn't the plan. Americans weren't supposed to be shrugging this stuff off—they were supposed to be lapping it up. Obama was supposed to be on the ropes, maybe even pondering resignation. Instead, outside the GOP bubble, it's a big "meh."
But there is some "good" news for Republicans. Greg Sargent looked at the numbers and reports the GOP base is still solidly in the bubble:
In the case of the IRS and Benghazi stories, the lurid and nefarious view of Obama’s involvement in them being peddled by the right is held only by Republicans — big majorities of them — while most moderates and independents, i.e. the middle of the country, believe the White House’s arguments.So, congratulations Republicans. You still have your base. They still hate Obama. And now you've convinced them there's not one, not two, but three reasons to impeach him. Good luck with that.
