Is Obama still überpopular?

Most of the MSM reports that Obama is überpopular as a rationalization to support any & all of his proposals:

The survey gave congressional Republicans a 31 percent rating for its approach to the stimulus bill. In the survey, 51 percent said passing the Obama plan was "critically important" to improving the economy. Interestingly, the Obama "brand" runs well ahead of his party."

which is countered by powerlineblog

In today's Rasmussen survey, President Obama's approval rating is down to 61 percent. There's nothing wrong with that, but there's nothing special about it, either. It's in line with what most Presidents have experienced near the beginning of their terms; slightly lower, actually, than George W. Bush's approval rating in the Gallup poll 60 days into his first term

However, most of the MSM is still performing the role of Obama's lap dog , so one would never realize that GWBush was ever as popular as Obama.
