63% Approve of Obama's performance

WE'VE MOVED! Democratic Convention Watch is now at

Apparently the country is very happy with Obama right now. From Rasmussen:

Forty-two percent (42%) of the nation’s voters now Strongly Approve of the way Obama is performing his role as President-elect while 19% Strongly Disapprove. Those figures give Obama a +23 rating in the Rasmussen Reports daily Presidential Approval Index, matching his highest rating yet (see trends). (The Presidential Approval Index is calculated by subtracting the number who Strongly Disapprove from the number who Strongly Approve.)
Overall, 63% of voters somewhat or strongly approve of Obama’s performance so far while 34% disapprove.
Oh, and by the way:
14% of all voters Strongly Approve of the way George W. Bush is handling his job as president. Forty-three percent (43%) Strongly Disapprove. That gives the current President a -29 rating on the Presidential Approval Index.
