President Obama probably should not feel bad about his latest approval numbers. He's only 10 percentage points below God!
Crazy as that sounds, a firm called Public Policy Polling asked 928 American voters in July whether or not they approved of God's performance -- "if God exists." Turns out, they approve of God's performance by 52 percent to 9 percent, with 40 percent undecided! Not very high, I'd say, and these are believers! (Obama's approval rating last week was 42 percent, according to a Gallup poll.)
When you look more closely, turns out that God's highest approval comes with creating the universe (71 percent to 5 percent), and handling the animal kingdom (56 percent to 11 percent). Surprisingly, God does OK with handling natural disasters as well (50 percent to 13 percent). But we're talking about God, after all! None of these sound great to me.
