In a new CNN poll, President Obama is proving he's had the worst three months ever with his approval numbers dropping seven points in 100 days. CNN, of course, links this to the myriad of I-Can't-Believe-It's-A-Scandal! scandals that have popped up of late.

A new NBC/Wall Street Journal poll shows President Barack Obama's approval numbers are on an upswing. For the first time in six months, the presidents' approval rating (48 percent) exceeds his disapproval rating (46 percent). The president's numbers have been on the rise since the economic picture started to brighten a bit late last year. In December, a Washington Post/ABC News poll found that while Obama still had a low approval rating on his handling of jobs and the economy, his overall approval rating numbers had improved with certain segments of the population, including young adults, seniors and independent voters. The narrowing of the approval and disapproval ratings can be seen in the latest Gallup Daily Poll, but Gallup still has the president's disapproval rating high at 49 percent, compared to a 43 percent approval.

Remember when this site wasn't wall-to-wall Obama? Wait. You don't because that's how most of you found the site. (Save you TJ lovers.) Well, I used to write about other things -- some serious, some not. And, quite frankly, I'm no more interested in being a cheerleader than a cynic of the Administration. Naturally, if it's newsworthy I'll write about it with the usual level of seriousness and verve, but ... I can't believe I'm saying this ... The Snob is all 'Bamaed out.
Now some classic Snob features survived Obamania. (Google Stalking TJ Holmes and The Great Wall of Sexy, anyone?) Others are in the Snob Blog Graveyard. Well, they want to come back, but they need your help and your votes. So here they are! The Zombie features! The Walking Dead!

Who holds the current majority in the US House of Representatives?
Who is the current US Secretary of State?
Who is the current Prime Minister of Great Britain?
If you can't answer one or more of these you are such an American it's not even funny.
Some news audiences are more politically savvy than others, according to a new poll, with readers of The New Yorker and similar high-brow magazines being the most knowledgeable.
The survey, conducted between April 30 and June 1 by the Pew Research Center for the People & the Press, measured the political knowledge of 3,612 U.S. adults. Participants were asked to name the controlling party of the U.S. House of Representatives, the U.S. secretary of state and Great Britain's prime minister.
Overall, just 18 percent of participants answered all three questions correctly.
More than 50 percent of Americans knew that the Democrats have a majority in the House, while 42 percent could identify the secretary of state (Condoleezza Rice). Less than 30 percent could name the prime minister of Great Britain (Gordon Brown).
