From a Quinnipiac poll released today:
Given four choices to describe their feelings about the President, American voters say:
• 46 percent like Obama as a person and like most of his policies;
• 28 percent like him as a person, but don't like most of his policies;
• 1 percent like his policies, but don't like him as a person;
• 20 percent don't like him or his policies.
That's 74 percent who like Obama as a person, vs. 21 percent who don't--and 47 percent who like his policies, vs. 48 percent who don't. In political terms, that means he passes the "candidate I want to have a beer with" test...now, if only he can charmingly explain the merits of health care and energy reform over that beer.
