New York Times/CBS Poll Finds Rise in Obama's Poll Numbers After Bin Laden Raid (1264 hits)

Breaking News Alert The New York Times Wed, May 04, 2011 -- 7:00 AM ET -----
Support for President Obama has risen sharply following the
killing of Osama bin Laden by American military forces in
Pakistan, with a majority now approving of his overall job
performance, as well as his handling of foreign policy, the
war in Afghanistan and the threat of terrorism, according to
the latest New York Times/CBS News poll.

The glow of national pride seemed to rise above partisan
politics, as support for the president rose significantly
among both Republicans and independents. In all, 57 percent
said they now approved of the president's job performance, up
from 46 percent last month.

But euphoria was tempered by a sense of foreboding: more than
six in 10 Americans said that killing Bin Laden was likely to
increase the threat of terrorism against the United States in
the short term. A large majority also said that the Qaeda
leader's death did not make them feel any safer. Just 16
percent said they personally felt more safe now.
