"It has been six months since the federal government shutdown, and its aftermath still creates tremors throughout the collective American psyche," Gallup said in its analysis, referring to the 16-day partial closing that cost American taxpayers $1.4 billion.

"Though confidence in the economy itself has recovered from the shutdown, confidence in the elected officials who strongly influence the economy seems to not have recovered," Gallup said.

I'm not so sure about this.  I suspect the shutdown is a distant memory for most people, pushed down the memory hole by dissatisfaction with Obamacare.  After all, how can Gallup's second statement be true if Republicans got all the blame for the shutdown?  If they blamed Republicans, wouldn't Obama be doing better?  I think Gallup missed something in their poll:  Obamacare is hurting people both literally and in the pocketbook.  Cause pain for people and hit them in the wallet while doing it and you'll find yourself in a tough spot in the popularity contest.

Obama lied through his teeth over ACA ("If you like your doctor, you can keep your doctor"), has done nothing to improve the economy, is completely feckless in foreign policy, and panders to his base with pleas to racism and class warfare.

He's finished, no matter how November turns out.
Roy Moore's "spiritual warfare" is driving past a junior high without stopping.

I think that is logical to assume the damage from the shutdown is fading.

The more surprising part of the Fox poll, though, might be how people view the Republican Party. It shows Americans are now evenly split -- 45 percent to 45 percent -- on the GOP. As recently as October, the same poll showed just 30 percent of Americans viewed the GOP favorably, compared to 63 percent unfavorable.

The poll actually shows the GOP's numbers are about the same as the Democratic Party, which has long been held in better regard.

The reason for the GOP's improved numbers has a lot to do with its own supporters coming home. While just 62 percent of Republicans had a favorable view of their own party in October, 84 percent now say they like their party.

Independents have improved their view of the GOP, with 30 percent viewing it favorably -- up from 14 percent in October.

Other polls have shown the GOP brand in much worse shape, though still improving. The Fox poll, notably, asks respondents about the GOP writ large and not specifically about Republicans in Congress. The latter question tends to elicit more negative responses.

Does anybody really want to throw out good, educated and accomplished young people who have jobs, some serving in the military? Really!.....
