Obama Job Speech-No Poll Bump For President

President Obama Even when facing dismal or dropping approval ratings, a President or other major political leader can often get a positive increase, albeit temporary, in their poll numbers, referred to as a “bump” in politicial circles.

Apparently no such bump for Obama after his jobs speech just after Labor Day.  His three poll average (the three biggest survey services) was still around 43 percent approval, while his disapproval rating increased from 49 to 50 percent.   Even as Obama’s numbers were dropping earlier this year, he gained a little upward nudge when the news of Osama bin Laden’s assasination was announced.  But not for the 4 billion job speech.  Critics of the plan have deemed it mockingly as “Stimulus 2″.
