A number of new polls have shown that the American public has positive views of President Obama's response to the damage along the eastern seaboard caused by Hurricane Sandy.
A UPI poll released Saturday showed 77 percent of Americans had a positive take on Obama's response to the storm and an additional 65 percent thought "the destructive storm and its aftermath gave the president a chance to connect better with voters," the news service wrote. An ABC News/Washington Post national tracking poll released on Wednesday of last week also found 78 percent of likely voters had a positive view of the president's efforts. A pair of swing state polls released Saturday from NBC/Marist showed the same thing -- 70 percent of likely voters in Florida and 73 percent of likely voters in Ohio approved of the response.
Apparently most Americans do not agree that the President simply showed up for a "photo op." They saw a President taking his job very seriously and getting things done as quickly as humanly possible.
As a matter of fact some in the Republican party have seen the writing on the wall and are already positioning themselves to credit Obama's inevitable win to the Hurricane, so as not to blame their candidate or their policies.
