Bloomberg reports interesting polling data today.
Americans approve of Obama's surge in Afghanistan. His approval numbers on the Afghan War are up to 52% from 42% a year ago. Not bad for a drawn-out, foreign war.
Meanwhile, disapproval of the healthcare initiative stands at 47%, versus 32% who approve.
In sum, America likes BHO when he follows Dubya's approach and dislikes it when he does what Dubya didn't do. That's tough for a guy who continues to campaign against his predecessor.
