Obama approval rating jumps 11% after Osama bin Laden’s death

The headline:  Bin Laden news gives Obama 11% approval bump

The summary:  According to a CBS News poll, President Barack Obama’s approval rating jumped from 46% two weeks ago to 57% following the news of Osama bin Laden’s death.

The reaction:  The fact that his approval rating jumped isn’t a surprise.  People are in a happy mood.

I doubt it sticks though.  Once the initial reaction to bin Laden’s death starts to die down I think the number will start to drift back to where it was.  After all, there’s still an economy that needs to be fixed.
