"It's certainly true that the national mood feels pretty conservative right now, with the tea party ascendant, health care reform in legal jeopardy, and the GOP controlling more state legislatures than at any time since 1928. But that mood may not be all it's cracked up to be. In the first place, despite high unemployment and record deficits, Obama is not particularly unpopular. In the latest Gallup poll, 48 percent of Americans approve of his performance. At this point in his presidency, Reagan had an approval rating of 35 percent." (02/07/11)
