It’s the two-year anniversary of President Obama’s inauguration tomorrow, and he has reason to celebrate. According to a new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll, his job approval rating jumped eight points to 53 percent. It’s the highest it’s been since July 2009, and a massive turnaround from the meh vibe towards him a few weeks back.
The poll was conducted after the Tucson shooting, which suggests people were impressed with the way he handled the situation and, perhaps, not down with the current GOP-style of leadership.
Chuck Todd, Chief White House Correspondent and Political Director for NBC News, will join us tonight to discuss these findings.
