I wonder if they are the same 68%?
President-elect Barack Obama comes away from Election Day with a 68% "favorable rating," the latest USA TODAY/Gallup Poll shows. That’s up from 62% who said they think favorably of him just before the election. The poll numbers were released just moments ago.
Obama’s pre-election 62% favorable rating was the highest of any major presidential candidate since Gallup began measuring it in 1992.
Meanwhile, President Bush starts his last 10 weeks in office with 68% of those polled saying they don’t approve of the job he’s doing — a slight improvement from just before Election Day, when 70% of those polled said they disapproved.
