Obama Still Enjoying Post-Assassination Popularity Boost

The results of a new Associated Press-GfK poll are out, and President Obama's approval rating now stands at 60 percent — his highest mark in two years (attributed mainly to the return of independent voters and the capping of Osama bin Laden). Good news for Barack Obama! His standing also improved on national security, with 73 percent saying they trust him to handle the threat of terrorism. Meanwhile, we still get to enjoy that never ending clusterfuck called the War on Terror and will continue to for some time. Yay, us.
