GALLOPING AHEAD. The Gallop poll said the President's job approval rate is now at 51%. (This is a net increase of 6 points since August 1). This is after the Democratic convention and after Kerry's cross country campain (not Cambodia, the Midwest of America).
Compare: President Clinton's 52% in August 1996, President Reagan's 54% in August 1984.
"No president who has been at or above 50% at this point in an election year has lost." USA Today.
As Captain Picard says "make it so".
