Americans approve of “stand your ground” laws despite the incredibly misleading campaign from the so-called Rev. Al Sharpton & Co., according to a new Quinnipiac Poll released August 2. From the president’s job approval rating to disapproval over Obamacare, it was clearly not a good month for the White House. Let’s take a look Inside The Numbers beginning with “stand you ground.”

If you thought that the “phony scandal” strategy was over, then you were dead wrong. Kicking off his move to pivot to the economy at Knox College – which has to be the tenth pivot now – President Obama cited those pesky abuses of power as the main reason why he cannot get his agenda through Congress.

In a recent survey, Gallup found that Americans still rate the Republican Party – 39% – less favorably than the Democratic Party – 46%. However, both parties’ favorability ratings are down from November 2012, just after the presidential election. The Democrats’ favorability rating dropped more, down from 51%, which was a post-election bump just after President Barack Obama won re-election. Even though Americans’ ratings of the Democratic Party clearly show that bump is over, their views of the GOP are the lowest since May of 2010.
