More Americans Support Obama’s Gulf Oil Spill Response Now That Well is Plugged
A Wall Street Journal/NBC poll finds that about half of Americans approve of the way President Obama handled the Gulf oil spill, now that the flow of oil has been stopped.
From The Wall Street Journal:
It appears that, from a political standpoint, the Gulf oil spill is a fading memory. Half of Americans approve of President Barack Obama’s job performance on the spill, while 38% disapprove. That’s a reversal from two months ago, when the gusher was still spewing crude into the Gulf. Moreover, 57% of Americans support an expansion of offshore drilling, compared with 53% who supported it in the midst of the spill in June.
