Americans are giving it up for President Obama, apparently happy to have him back on the campaign trail where he at least talks a lot about leadership. According to a new Rasmussen Reports poll, the president has just received his highest leadership rating by likely voters in over 30 months.
For the first time since January 2010, 41 percent said that Obama's leadership style is "about right." Only six other times has Rasmussen recorded a better score, and they occurred early in Obama's first year in office.
Some 25 percent called his style too confrontational and another 25 percent called his style too cooperative in the poll of 1,000 taken July 5-6.
The poll comes as Obama is switching into full-time re-election campaigning and away from tangling with Congress over his initiatives. It also comes as his campaigning is hitting Mitt Romney's management of Bain Capital.
