Question of the Day
Obama’s bin Laden bounce starts to fade, poll shows
The jump in approval ratings that President Obama got in the wake of the killing of Osama bin Laden is gone, according to the Gallup Daily tracking poll.
The Los Angeles Times reports that, as of Friday, the president’s approval rating is 46 percent, the same number he had in the three days before the raid on bin Laden’s hideaway at the beginning of the month.
The president’s numbers jumped six points after the successful raid into Pakistan.
In the current tracking poll numbers, his disapproval numbers were at 44 percent, almost the same as before the raid.
Gallup Daily tracks the percentage of Americans who approve or disapprove of the job the president is doing and results are based on a three-day rolling average.
Staffers at the White House budget office say they want to be represented by a labor union.
About half of the career work force at the Office of Management and Budget filed a petition on Monday seeking to join the nation’s largest federal employee union.
If the petition is approved by a federal agency, a vote could be held this summer.
OMB spokesman Kenneth Baer says the Obama administration strongly supports the right of workers to unionize.
The union would not represent any political appointees, or supervisors or managers.
