Some numbers that blow my mind...

According to a recent Gallup poll, "40% of Americans... describe their political views as conservative, 35% as moderate, and 21% as liberal."  A few weeks ago, another Gallup poll told us that the majority of Americans now consider themselves "Pro-Life."

Only 35% of Americans supported President Obama's decision to allow government money to go to organizations that provide abortion overseas.  The vast majority of Americans opposed Obama's executive order to close Gitmo.
According to a June 1st Rasmussen Poll, 58% of Americans think that Obama's spending bill had no effect or made things worse (31% of Americans think the bill made things worse.)  In a June 8th poll, they found that more Americans now trust Republicans on economic issues than democrats.

Going through the issues, people disapprove of Obama's economic policies, disapprove of his security policies, disagree with his social policies and are torn about his dealings with foreign states... and yet, 60% "approve" of the Obama presidency.  How?  Is it just pure cult of personality?
