Bounce gone: Obama's approval finally back to pre-OBL levels

Even though Obama’s approval rally is largely over, some subgroups do give the president slightly higher ratings now than immediately before bin Laden’s death. Republicans are one such group. Two others are Americans younger than 30 (46% then versus 53% now) and aged 30 to 49 (45% versus 51%). In contrast, senior citizens’ approval rating of Obama, now at 37%, is lower than it was before the recent rally began.
