Obama's post-Bin Laden numbers fading

That was fast!

The rosy glow that helped boost President Obama's approval ratings after terrorist leader Osama bin Laden was killed in a U.S. raid in Pakistan has already faded, according to the Gallup Daily tracking poll.

As of May 13, Obama's approval rating was at 46%, the same number he had in the three days before the raid on Bin Laden's hideaway at the beginning of the month. The president had received a six-point bump as measured in the Gallup poll after the death of Bin Laden.

. . . In the current tracking poll numbers, his disapproval numbers were at 44%, almost the same as before the raid.

It's all about jobs, the economy and gas prices.
