The latest Gallup poll, reflecting interviews taken after his widely-praised speech at the memorial service last Wednesday, shows that 48 percent of Americans approve of Obama, compared with 42 percent who disapprove. That’s little changed from the survey taken just before the shooting, which showed 48 percent approval and 43 percent disapproval — a statistically insignificant difference.
