President Obama’s approval ratings has climbed to its highest point in nearly a year and opinions of Congress are up too, a new poll Wednesday found.

Obama's job approval rating went up to 50 percent from 45 percent in December, the first time Obama has achieved 50 percent approval in this poll since last June.
Still, many Americans still do not approve of his job performance -- 47 percent disapproved of him in this poll, compared to 46 percent in December.
With the economy showing signs of picking up its pace of growth, more Americans are likely to say the country is on the right track -- 36 percent in January, up from 29 percent in December.
"As the economy gets better, so does the administration," said Ipsos pollster Cliff Young. "Looking to 2011, he's going to have more credibility among voters. It suggests that pushing his agenda, while difficult, is not going to be impossible."

Funny how many of you love the bad ratings and post them ad nauseum, but good ratings? Can't deal, huh?
So, let's talk about any possibly correlation of his poll numberas and what I said about wondering if the jump is because of the extension of the Bush Tax Cuts.... Let's discuss LOGICALLY... Ohh wait, you are a coward anon... Impossible of applying logic.
